- Clean up your React component types 🧼
This article discusses best practices for writing cleaner React code using Function Components and TypeScript. It argues against the use of React.FC in favor of cleaner component types. The article explains that React.FC has unnecessary legacy properties, limits the use of function expressions, lacks support for generics, and complicates component types with a Namespace. It suggests using TypeScript's type inference instead of explicitly defining component types and provides alternatives to React.FC for properties like children and displayName. The article emphasizes the benefits of cleaner code, improved developer experience, and future-proofing your codebase.
