In this video, Emmanuel Henri provides some details around where to find the exercise files and how to use them. Each video has a start and end state of the application, and can be used accordingly to follow along.
- [Instructor] To get the exercise files on the course page simply click on the tab named exercise files, then download the zip file. Then simply extract the zip file and move the folder to your desktop. Once you have it on your desktop all you have to do is click on the exercise files then click on the actual chapter you're on, and then click on the actual video we're on in start state or end state. Then what you need to do id go inside of your quota editor, in this case VS Code.
What you need to do is to go inside of Explorer, open folder, then let's go to chapter one. Video 0104, end state, open those files. Then bring up your integrated terminal. Do an npm install to make sure that all the dependencies are installed.
Once you have all these dependencies installed all you have to do is an npm start to get the project started. And off you go. Please keep in mind that sometimes the code is work in progress. If you run npm start the application won't run and may return an error. This is expected and won't affect your ability to follow along.
