Neither React nor Reflux come with a built-in library for loading data. Many people use jQuery, but this jQuery is heavy for the task. In this lesson, John shows you how to easily load in some data using Superagent and walks you through the process of displaying and formatting the data in your component.

How can i render this using NOT es6/babel and with lodash.. i am trying:

var Name = React.createClass({
    mixins:[Reflux.connect(store)],
    render: function(){
        return(
            <div>
            {_.map(this.state.users,function(n){
                fName=n.user.name.first
                lName=n.user.name.last
                picture = n.user.picture.thumbnail;
                return ""+fName+" "+lName + " " + picture
            })
            }
                </div>
        )
    }
});

i am connecting to randomUser Api. the issue im having is that i can't render line breaks between elements, and therefore can't render img src=linktoImage properly as well, it just shows the URL for respective image.

superagent documentation change a little bit, right now you need to get the request first and then handle it. that's why the example doesn't work properly if you have the latest superagent version.

To fixed, just change the init call to something like this:

init() { var that = this; request.get('https://output.jsbin.com/dekafa.json') .set('crossOrigin', 'true') .end(function(err, res){ console.log(this); that.data.people = JSON.parse(res.text); that.trigger(that.data); }); },

Correct me I'm wrong, his example is a bit confusing. Using react-router, the store won't get initiated when the concerned component is called after a route change

I'm sure there's a good explanation to it, but this tut' seems to be tied to a very specific context
