    Build an SVG icon component in React


    Learn one way to render SVG icons as a React component. You’ll learn about the dynamic nature of SVG by passing props to a component that modify the icons properties such as colors and size.

    You'll learn how to set up a stateless functional component, set up prop types and add a set of default props.

    One benefit to building an individual icon component is that only the SVG markup needed for that icon will be rendered, instead of having to load an entire set of icons and only using one of them. Also, different attributes can be overridden using props, making theming and integration simple.
