React: Understanding State & Lifecycle

  • The state of a component is an object that holds information that may change over the lifetime of the component.
  • State is updated by event handlers
  • State should not be explicitly updated, you need to use setState method otherwise React won’t detect the changes.
  • We have four parts of component lifecycle methods: Initialization, Mounting, Updating, Unmounting.
