I would like to learn React Native and I have seen various tutorials including this one
There are 2 guides: the quick start and the building projects with native code. The quick start uses Create React Native App and the other one requires you to install all the dependencies: Node, the React Native command line interface, Python2, a JDK, and Android Studio.
Would you advise the Create React Native App as a quick way to get started or is it better to do the full set up? I have not used react native so I am guessing if I want a quick intro to it I could use Create React Native App and then if I find I use it then do the full set up? I'm also wondering if I use Create React Native App as a quick way to get started will I learn unhelpful idiosyncrasies of that tool that I will need to unlearn or is it better to start with the 'full' set up.
The link to get Create React Native App is https://github.com/react-community/create-react-native-app
and I have been advised in another question to use https://github.com/nodesource/distributions
