The examples are written using TypeScript. You don't have to use TypeScript for React DnD, it is completely optional. The tutorial should give you a good idea about using React-DnD in JavaScript.

Check out the hosted versions of this example. To run them locally, clone the repo, and run yarn install && yarn start. It will take a while to start, but after the site is built, you can access the examples by opening http://localhost:8080/ and clicking “Examples” in the navigation bar.
