    Validate Custom React Component Props with PropTypes


    In this lesson, we'll learn how you can use the prop-types module to validate a custom React component's props. We will start by building out a Proptypes object that throws an error if the prop passed is not of the required type. Then, we will import the React team's prop-types module and look at some of the useful utilities it provides like isRequired. Function components define Proptypes off of a property while Class components define Proptypes off of a static method.
