When I started writing React apps, I approached components as if they were “just the V in MVC!” Seriously, we’ve all heard it.
I have found this to be an inferior way of thinking about and building React applications. It makes people treat React as a drop-in replacement for something like a Backbone or Angular 1.x View. In other words, people treat it like a glorified template system with partials and don’t harness the power of its functional paradigms.
