- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we created a simple react element with an id and a class.…Let's style this element with a little CSS.…Here on line four, I'm going to create a new variable.…This new variable is going to be called style.…It'll be set equal to a style object…with a background color of orange, a text color of white,…and font family is verdana.…
The way that I will set this up is just as another property…here on line 12.…We will say style is style.…If we take a look at our terminal we're going to restart…our server, and we're going to make sure we're navigated…to the correct folder.…And if we look at local host 3000, we should see all…of this style being applied appropriately.…The next thing I want to do to enhance our experience here…with react is we're going to convert all of this to JSX.…
JSX is java script as XML.…It's a tag based syntax that we can use…to create react elements.…Instead of using these create element calls we can use tags…which look a whole lot like html or XML tags.…Here on line 17 is where I'm actually going…
