In this video, Eve shows you a few browser extensions and plugins that are helpful for you to have to ensure you work successfully with React. react-detector will highlight every time you visit a site that has React code in it. Also, the React Developer Tools extension will give you a sense of all of the React elements that make up a page. These extensions can be installed with Chrome, and also exist in Firefox.
