What is NPM?
Here is an Example to Understand NPM
NPM is like a kitchen pantry where you store and manage ingredients for a recipe (packages). You can easily access pre-made recipes (packages) to cook specific dishes (functionalities). It also helps you automate reminders (scripts) and ensures dietary safety (security) for your dinner party (project).
How to Install NPM??
you need to have Node.js and NPM installed on your machine. You can download and install them from the official Node.js website. Once installed, you can verify your NPM installation by running the following commands in your terminal-
npm -v //this is for NPM
node -v //this is for Node
React.js and NPM
Installing React.js with the Help of NPM
To start a new React.js project, you can use the create-react-app command, which is a tool that sets up a new React application. Here’s how you can create a new React app using NPM:
npx create-react-app my-react-app //write this code in cmd to Build a new React JS Application .
Suppose you want to Add some Packages to your Application. Here you can ASK NPM to install those Packages.
for this, you have to simply write
npm install Your_Package_Name
If you want to run your React Project you can ask NPM to run it.
NPM and React.js are a powerful combination that streamlines the development process for web applications. NPM simplifies package management, dependency tracking, and automation, making it an essential tool for any React developer. By understanding and harnessing the capabilities of NPM, you can accelerate your React.js projects and build robust, efficient applications.
