@rinse0ut Watching tutorials on React... passing around functions to modify state from the parent into the child component props because the child components can't access the state... what a ball-ache! Seems very shitty. From what you were saying yesterday I'm guessing Redux fixes this... if not... then so far I dislike React.

Give it 5 mins. I like React. It’s also in demand professionally. You could try Choo, that is fun too!

Yep you map your state to the props and your dispatch actions to props as well.

...yeah, I kinda get the gist of components...self-contained, suppose it makes sense.
afraid that means nothing to me right now... thanks anyway... bit advanced for now... I'll keep plowing through the resources.

Say you made an awesome web app. Then wanted to make an awesome mobile app you could re use the components
