A bit of context
This is a companion Gist for a talk that I gave at React Berlin in April 2015. The fine folks at Bitcrowd recorded all three of the evening's talks, so you can watch mine at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ArhJiMGVDc.

The end result (hopefully!)
If you'd like to follow along, check out ReadingListIOS's commit history. I'll be following similar steps during my talk (though not necessarily in exactly the same order).

Some scattered links along the way
Some good tips on isolation of components
(It's a bit buried in the docs, but good stuff nonetheless.)
