Jest setup file to stop React 15.5 createClass / PropTypes deprecation warnings
import React from 'react';
/**
* Since React v15.5, there's a warning printed if you access `React.createClass` or `React.PropTypes`
* https://reactjs.org/blog/2017/04/07/react-v15.5.0.html#new-deprecation-warnings
*
* `import * as React from 'react'` is required by Flowtype https://flow.org/en/docs/react/types/ ,
* but the * causes both those deprecated getters to be called.
* This is particularly annoying in Jest since every test prints two useless warnings.
*
* This file can be used as a Jest setup file to simply delete those features of the `react` package.
* You don't need the deprecation warning. Your tests will simply fail if you're still using the old ways.

I know gist notifications are pretty much non-existent, but thank you @turadg! Handy for TypeScript migrations too.
