Try React

Try React online or set up your local development environment.


If you’re just interested in playing around with React, you can use an online code playground. Try a Hello World template on CodePen or CodeSandbox.

Minimal HTML Template

If you prefer to use your own text editor, you can also download this HTML file, edit it, and open it from the local filesystem in your browser. It does a slow runtime code transformation, so don’t use it in production.
