React shallow render lifecycle breakdown
View README.md

React introduced shallow rendering in 0.13. This is an excellent feature that I wish was included earlier in React. It aims to solve the problem of unit testing components without going through a real, or jsdom mocked, DOM. I couldn't find any info online about what lifecycle events it actually fires. So I did some testing of my own. To reproduce, put component.js and test.js into a folder and run node test.js.

TLDR; shallow rendering only invokes the following lifecycle hooks (in order):

  1. getDefaultProps
  2. getInitialState
  3. componentWillMount stops here until re-render
  4. componentWillReceiveProps
  5. shouldComponentUpdate
  6. componentWillUpdate

The most important principle: Fairness, and the perception of fairness, is much more valuable than owning a large stake. Almost everything that can go wrong in a startup will go wrong, and one of the biggest things that can go wrong is huge, angry, shouting matches between the founders as to who worked harder, who owns more, whose idea was it anyway, etc. That is why I would always rather split a new company 50-50 with a friend than insist on owning 60% because "it was my idea," or because "I was more experienced" or anything else. Why? Because if I split the company 60-40, the company is going to fail when we argue ourselves to death. And if you ju
