Getting Started.

Make sure you have nodejs installed by running the following command:

If the output is not the version of your nodejs installation, install nodejs from here

After installing nodejs install yarn if you don't have it then install the project's dependencies:

yarn install

Run the Server

Run the development server from the root folder using either of the following commands:

npm run dev
# or
yarn dev

Run the application -- Frontend specific

Open the frontend folder zc_frontend in your terminal and run the application from the folder using either of the following commands:

npm run dev
# or
yarn dev

Open http://localhost:3000 with your browser to see the result.

Editor setup

We're using eslint for linting and prettier for code formating, make sure you install eslint and prettier plugins in your editor so you can
see linting errors as you code and have your code formatted on save by prettier. If formatOnSave doesn't work please google how to set up
format on save for the eslint & prettier plugins in your editor 🙃
