> edir: oh, typescript! Yeah, that is a little bit more troublesome;

So appending '--typescript' is troublesome and not obvious? Like this?

react-native init AppName --typescript

That's it. I never knew in 2019 that adding an extra flag would be 'troublesome'. The description of your installation of a React Native and TypeScript project in 2018+ is greatly exaggerated.

According to the article, there are caveats.m, I don’t know, therefore I linked to the article.

Is the flag generating a project that works without anymore tweaking/setting up? If so, my reference to the blog is not accurate.

Also, a better reply would be “oh that article is not accurate anymore, now everything is setup for you I’d you add this flag!”
