jamischarles / react-i18n.js
Created Oct 23, 2020
Examples of how to interpolate strings in React with elements (useful for i18n)
View react-i18n.js
// More modern version of what's found here by Khan academy:
// 1) simple way to result in <div>Hello</div>
let a = React.createElement("div", null, "Hello");
// 2) Create a fragment instead of a div so you can pass in JSX as one of the children. Key is optional I think
// <Fragment key="0">Hello my friend, <a href="">This is good</a> </Fragment>
let b = React.createElement(
React.Fragment, {key: 0},
"hello my friend ",
