Transcript

- React is primarily to taking some data and creating a UI to display it. So, it's important to understand its relationship with data. The most important thing to remember about reacting data is that data flow is unidirectional. Data flows from the top of the component tree to the bottom. It can't flow back up the component tree. React provides two mechanisms for dealing with data. Props and state. We need to think about the stability of the data. Data that does not change over the lifetime of the component should be considered as props. Data that can change, should be considered a state. State should be the single source of truth for changing data and should be kept in the highest common component of those that need the data. So, any component lower down the tree that depends on it, should receive the data as props.
