Frontend Development Dec 26, 2022

To download a React project from GitHub and run it on your computer, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) on your computer. You can download Node.js from the official website ( and npm will be installed along with it.
  2. Go to the GitHub page of the React project you want to download.
  3. Click the "Code" button and then click the "Download ZIP" button to download the project as a ZIP file.
  4. Extract the ZIP file to a local directory on your computer.
  5. Open a terminal or command prompt and navigate to the root directory of the project.
  6. Run the following command to install the required dependencies:  npm install
  7.  Run the following command to start the development server: npm start
  8. The development server will start and the project will be available at http://localhost:3000 in your web browser.

Another Way !!

  1. Open your terminal and then type

    $ git clone {the url to the GitHub repo}

    This clones the repo
  2. cd into the new folder and type

    $ npm install

    This installs the required dependencies
  3. To run the React project.
    $ npm start

You are done! Now you can start editing the React project in the new folder that's created.

Note: These instructions assume that the React project was created using the create-react-app tool and that it has a package.json file with the required dependencies and scripts. If the project was created using a different tool or does not have a package.json file, the steps for running the project may be different.

Error to 200 means "Error to Success Status". Through this blog and youtube channel, I attempt to teach basics and those coding techniques to people in a short time, which took me ages to learn.
