Using TypeScript with React

Installation

React has TypeScript support so you all you need to do is just run your normal create React app command with the TS template flag

npx create-react-app <app-name> --template typescript

Counter example

For my example I will be building out a simple counter app. After the React boilerplate is finished installing, I created a a component folder within the src directory and created two components( Count.tsx & Counter.tsx) and replaced the React boilerplate code in the App.tsx with my code.
