We use the following technologies in this chapter:
- Node.js and npm: TypeScript and React are dependent on these. We can install them from https://nodejs.org/en/download/. If we already have these installed, make sure npm is at least at version 5.2.
- Visual Studio Code: We'll need an editor to write our React and TypeScript code, which can be installed from https://code.visualstudio.com/. We will also need the TSLint (by egamma) and Prettier (by Estben Petersen) extensions installed within Visual Studio Code.
- GitHub: We'll need a GitHub account. We can sign up at the following link if we haven't got an account: https://github.com/join.
- GitHub GraphQL API Explorer: We'll use this tool to play with the syntax of GraphQL queries and mutations. The tool is at https://developer.github.com/v4/explorer/.
