As React apps scale, you’ll want to structure components for greater reusability and composability. Here are some powerful React patterns:
The compound components pattern creates component APIs with shared context:
This provides more flexible APIs than just props.
With render props, components accept a function prop that returns a React element:
This allows components to dynamically determine what should render.
A higher-order component (HOC) wraps a component to enhance it:
HOCs provide separation of concerns for component logic.
- Compound components provide context through shared components
- Render props allow components to determine rendering
- HOCs enhance component logic by wrapping components
These patterns unlock powerful techniques for reusable, configurable React components.
