    Simulate PureComponent with a React Function Component

    reactReact

    Historically, only Class Components could extend PureComponent or implement their own shouldComponentUpdate method to control when it's render was actually invoked. However, now you can use React.memo HOC to provide this same type of control with Function Components. This isn't specific to Hooks, but was released in React 16.6 and complements the hooks API.
