Take a look at inspecting React sites. Once the developer tools have been installed, you can take a look at all of the elements that make up a page. The React elements map to HTML elements. You can click on select element to see these, or you can open the Developer Tools and look through them. As you look through these elements, you will see them highlighted.
- [Instructor] In this video we'll take a closer look…at the React tools that we previously installed.…First I'll navigate to a website that uses React…like hellosign.com.…We see that React is on the page…because the React detector is highlighted.…Next I'll open the developer tools.…A shortcut to open our developer tools on a Mac…is Command + Option + J…or if you're using a PC,…you can hit F12 or Control + Shift + J.…
Once open,…we can navigate to the React tab;…and this will display all of the different components…that make up our page.…If I expand these elements,…we're going to see a couple of things happen.…Number one,…we see the component is being highlighted here…on the left-hand side of the screen.…Then I can drill down into this component…to see all of the different elements…that make up this home page sign-up component.…We'll also notice on the right-hand side…that we have information about properties;…and then sometimes if we click on something,…you'll see state as well.…
The concepts of props and state…are hugely important in React,…
