Vev & React & TypeScript

React is a JavaScript library; it has become among the most popular frameworks available, and there are many guides to help you get started. If you follow the guides on a page like, you will find examples that will work just fine when pasted right into the Code Editor in Vev. You can then use Vev as a sandbox without having to set up anything in advance.

The Canvas will load the component which is returned as the default export of your index.tsx file. Read more about exports and modules here.
