I set up a create-react-app and I'm trying to run App.js on localhost, but upon doing yarn start I get the following error message:



22:23 $ yarn start
yarn run v1.3.2
$ react-scripts start
Could not find a required file.
Name: index.html
Searched in: /Users/-----/Desktop/---/----/hw/HW-REPO/hw-name/public
error Command failed with exit code 1.


I'd already installed yarn with yarn install, so I'm not sure if there's something wrong with my code or with the file structure.



Here's the file structure:



app-name
-client
--public
---index.html
---manifest.json
--src
---Components
----various folders
---App.js
---App.test.js
---index.js
-database
-model
-gitignore
-package-lock.json
-package.json
-server.js
-yarn.lock

Update: I moved yarn.lock and package.json into the client folder, did yarn install again, and then ran yarn start. Now I'm seeing good ol' error messages in the browser. I'm not 100% sure if shuffling the files around did the trick or if it was doing yarn install again, but at least it's working now.
