How to modify the welcome message of a react app.

Posted May 2, 2021 470 views

When I publish my react-app and enter on the page, everything goes fine, but when I add the same page to the my principal android window from the browser and execute it, the app shows a default message with the react logo, a white background and a text saying “Create React App Sample”. Well, I just want to ask if this view it can be changed or if it’s a template unmodifiable.


Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone. I noticed it’s neccesary change the manifest.json of the app.
In there we have the icons, titles, themes, etc.

Starting a new JavaScript project with React used to be a complicated process. But now, Create React App includes all the JavaScript packages you need to run a React project, including code transpiling, basic linting, testing, and build systems. In this tutorial, you'll use Create React App to start a React application. You'll also run a build to create a minified version of your app, use a server with hot reloading to give you instant feedback, and explore the React file structure.
  • Hi Bobby, thanks for answering!

    Unfortunately that’s not the answer I was looking for. The guide you provided refear to the react app homepage, but I was talking about another one that shows to the user when the hosted website is added and executed from the principal android window. I provided an imgur link in the question textarea with the exact view i’m refering. If you find anything helpfull, feel free on comment it.
