    Use Render Props with React

    Kent C. DoddsKent C. Dodds

    In this lesson, we'll take a step back and reexamine the problem by doing a few tiny refactorings to arrive at a new pattern called render props. render props is just a function that you pass to a component that renders jsx. This pattern gives us the ability to use Reacts lifecycle methods where as with Higher Order Components, you could not. We'll see that it allows us to avoid using APIs like context and all of the issues we had to deal with when using Higher Order Components.
