How to Install ReactJS: A Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

To incorporate React.js into your project, you can include the JavaScript library files directly in your HTML. Typically, alongside React.js, you’ll also include the React DOM library. Here’s a basic example of how you can include these files:








For JSX syntax support, you’ll need to include the Babel library. This allows you to write JSX code directly in your JavaScript files. Make sure to change the script type to text/babel:











Alternatively, you can install React.js via npm. Simply run the following command in your terminal:

npm install --save react react-dom

Then, in your JavaScript project, you can import React and ReactDOM:

var React = require('react');
var ReactDOM = require('react-dom');

With React installed, you can use it in your project as usual, such as rendering components:

ReactDOM.render(, ...);

Alternatively, you can use Yarn, Facebook’s package manager, to install React. After installing Yarn, simply run:

yarn add react react-dom

Then you can utilize React in your project just as you would if you had installed it via npm.
