React is growing in popularity and is one of the best front-end libraries out there. It has become the library for many developers to build user interface applications.

Create a React Project with TypeScript
To build, we use a React app to deploy our react app in such a way that we don’t have to worry about all the stress of webpack and babel.
As you might have guessed, to configure the React-react app, we use the
create-react-app with extra flags. We will type this in our terminal to open our application.
This command will create a response log for us so we can configure the server as usual.
npx create-react-app your-app --template typescript
Running the above command will effectively create your new app without any special settings. All files are now .ts or .tsx files.
This article is all you need to get started with TypeScript and React! Your application should now have new features and work perfectly in TypeScript. I hope you found this article helpful. Thanks for reading.
