    Use a react-intl Higher Order Component to format messages and get current locale

    15 - 16.8.4

    In some cases, you might need to pass a string from your intl messages.js file as a prop to a component. Instead of using react-intl components (which generate markup), we’ll use the injectIntl higher order component provided by react-intl. This will provide just the string we’re looking for, make the prop simpler, and avoid creating unnecessary DOM elements.

    We’ll also use props passed to the component from the Higher Order Component to clean up some redundant code.
