Getting started with React Native #3 - Setup

Let get it on!

First of all, I want to setup the basic dev environment... I'll stick with the official guide on React Native.
Let's see...

  1. Aaah. A nice clean terminal.
  2. Let's see... Is nodejs installed?

Yup! Even the current version. Yay!

  1. Next step... Totally on purpose... make a type to see, if the audience is following along. Then do the right step...

Haha! GOTCHA! No seriously... install a jdk!

  1. Downloading Android Studio even though I don't want to use it...

Time for a cup of coffee. Thanks to my potatoe internet connection.

  1. Watchman? What the hell is watchman? Well.. alrighty... Install Watchman then... I'll stick with the dist-package though...

Hello there!

  1. Guess that's it... Woohooo! Let's code... Right? RIGHT?

react-native: 'HAHA! NOOB! NEVER!'

  1. A decade later...

Install #1

Install #2

Install #3

That's it, right? Let's get it on!

GNAAAAAAH!!!!!

  1. Forget about it! Let's docker it...

Aaah... beautiful docker magic!

Well after losing a lot of precious time installing half of the internet without any benefit... That's it for now... My suggestion for the react-native-community... go fix those Install-hell! Thanks! xoxo
