Development Mode and Mastering Hot Reloading

In the previous chapter, you learned how to use create-react-app. This is just the beginning of our React tooling journey. By using create-react-app to bootstrap your application, you're installing many other tools used for development. These tools are part of the react-scripts package.

  • Automatic Webpack configuration
  • Putting hot component reloading to use
