- [Instructor] To render React components on the server,…we're going to use the ReactDOMServer package.…To be able to use this ReactDOMServer,…we're going to have to import React itself first…and we'll also need to import ReactDOMServer…from react-dom/server.…And we also need our own React application.…So we're going to import App from ./src/components/App .js.…This is the top level of our React application.…
And then in here, we can use ReactDOMServer.renderToString…and give it our own component.…Just like that.…This would read the React code…and renders everything to string.…Let's go back and take a look at our React component.…And you'll remember that our React component…depends on the state to load the data.…So there is no way for me to pass the data in here…to the React component to prerender the component with data.…
That's not going to work.…The code of this component right now…is not very friendly for server render.…And what we need to do…is we want to make this component…able to render the contests using initial data here.…
