Setup instructions

You will find the instructions to set up your computer for your next React Native Bootcamp.

šŸ’” I do provide advice for Linux and macOS. šŸ’” Being an administrator on windows is mandatory, I am not responsible if you encounter issues. (You can follow this setup tutorial from InfiniteRed to make everything work).

System Requirements

Use the following command from your terminal to check your Node version.

node --version

If you have a recent version installed, it should do.

Virtual Simulators


Check if everything is working.

xcode-select --install

To accept terms and conditions

xcode-select -p

Should output something like /Applications/ if it's not the case run sudo xcode-select --reset


Smartphone Requirements

  • Create an account
  • Download Expo GO on your smartphone
  • Log in with your Expo account on your smartphone ( On the top right )

You are going to follow a Native Mobile Application Bootcamp.

iOS phones are the easiest way, Android is nice too BUT there are more issues. You need a decent smartphone to enjoy a fast experience.
