Join Eve Porcello for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learning React.js (2016).
- [Eve] This course has a set of exercise files that you can download and follow along with, allowing you to work alongside me in the exact same files I'll be working on. In the exercise files folder, you're going to find folders for each chapter that has files, and then each lesson inside of that chapter. Inside of each chapter, there's a start folder, and a finish folder. When the video begins, I'll start with the start file, when the video ends I'll end with the finished file. In this course, I'm going to be using Sublime Text. This is available from sublimetext.com.
However, you can follow along in any text editor or development IDE of your choice. For the sake of ease, I'm going to just load this whole exercise files folder into the sidebar by going to the Project menu, and I'm going to select Add Folder to Project. From here I can select the exercise files folder as the root, and now I have access to all of these on my handy left sidebar. With that in place, let's get to the content and officially begin Learn React: The Basics.
