Configure React JS Proxy Manually

First, you need to create a middleware.

$ npm install http-proxy-middleware --save
$ # or
$ yarn add http-proxy-middleware

After you create a middleware we need to create a file in src/setupProxy.js and place the following content.

const { createProxyMiddleware } = require('http-proxy-middleware');

module.exports = function(app) {
      target: 'http://localhost:5000',
      changeOrigin: true,

After that, you should all be good to go to call your API routes without including the whole path.
