Setup react-native development environment

Hello everyone. I recently switched to Garuda linux and I'm lost with setting up development environment for react-native. I tried to follow general steps for linux and debian too. But i cannot seem to wrap my head around setting up the environment variables within the system. Please help
EDIT: I'm a beginner in Linux and thus don't have much idea about it's file system and editors. I wanted to add ANDROID_HOME and JAVA_HOME and its related directories to the global path.

Hi. Thank you for your response. I looked into it. But I got more confused. I'm a begineer in linux and thus don't have much idea about it's file system and editors. I wanted to add ANDROID_HOME and its related directories to the global path. How do I do that in Garuda??

Hello @geekmiester ,

the "Utilities" section describes exactly how to do this (in that mentioned Arch-Wiki).
This is your chance to understand Linux by working your way through this wiki.

Have fun. :slight_smile:

Wait, also read comments

To upgrade watchers limits without being in a superuser session you can use tee:
echo "fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288" | sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf

Hello. Thank you for your response. but right now i need to set up the system and get into development asap for my assignment, therefore i would appreciate much if you would guide me through the exact process on how to do so.

Sounds like it's time to ask your local technical support.

Or, are you offering to pay someone to provide you one-to-one live support?
