Join Alex Banks for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the React router, part of Building a Polling App with Socket IO and React.js.
- Our application is going to have three main screens.…One for the speaker, the leader of the presentation;…and one for each audience member;…and then one for the Board.…So we're going to need to incorporate some routes…to handle those screens.…I have a copy of the solution running on…localhost:3210,…and what you'll notice is I have a little hashtag here…that indicates client routes.…So our Audience screen is going to be the homepage.…However, if we type #/speaker,…we will see the Speaker screen,…which is a different React component.…
And if we type #/board, we will see the scoreboard,…which is the third React component.…And we can get back to the Audience component…just by going to the #/, which represents our DefaultRoute.…So now we need to incorporate the React router…so that we can add this functionality to our APP.…I'm going to go ahead and open up the terminal.…And from the terminal, we will install that React router…by saying npm install,…and sending it the save flag so it saves this dependency…to the package.json.…
