Chapter 5. Mixins and the DOM

In the previous chapter, we took a deep dive into React Forms. We took a look at building multiple components and interactivity between them, Controller and Uncontrolled Components, building Forms and Form elements, and Form events and handlers for the events. We build a form to capture cart-checkout flow and orders being placed in a multi-step form.

In this chapter, we will focus on abstracting content using mixins and touch upon DOM handling.

Here, we will cover the following points:

  • Mixins
  • PureRender mixin
  • React and the DOM
  • Refs

At the end of this chapter, we will be able to abstract and reuse logic across our components and learn how to handle DOM from within the components.
