Web Applications with node.js and React

Welcome! This is the documentation for building web application using Electrode X for node.js and React.

In this quick start guide, we will show you how to create and run your first app.


  1. Install node.js version 12.x.x or later

    • For Unix or Windows, we recommend a universal node version manager tool for managing node.js installations.
    • If you are using Unix only, then the Unix only nvm tool is a good option.
