In this episode of React Round Up, the panel discusses advanced component patterns and Downshift. They talk about different component patterns, especially render prop patters, and the fact that Downshift allows for your components to be much more useful generally for more people. They also note that the render prop patterns can help to separate logic from view, which makes things easier to develop.

In particular, we dive pretty deep on:

  • Component patterns
  • Downshift
  • Egghead course
  • What makes it advanced?
  • Requires taking a step back and think about your components a little differently
  • Is there a React Native version?
  • React
  • Render prop patterns
  • Code abstraction or code re-use
  • Why Downshift is powerful
  • Can use regular HTML and CSS with Downshift
  • Allows you to be in charge of rendering
  • What other places is the render prop pattern useful?
  • What is the benefit of using a react component over a JS component?
  • Awesome React Render Props GitHub Repo
  • Downshift is highly accessible
