Transcript

To get started, we need to know where the routing components come from. The react-router-dom library that provides the components needed to route an application is not part of the create-react-app list of dependencies that we used to start our project. Therefore, we need to add it manually. This is done using the npm i react-router-dom command in the terminal. Just make sure you're pointing at the route of your project before you execute it. Once this is installed, you have access to all of the components and hooks this library contains.
