Render An Array Of Elements With React 16

React 16 was released today. Among many exciting features and updates is support for rendering an array of elements.

This can look as simple as this example:

return [
  <li key="1">One</li>,
  <li key="2">Two</li>,
  <li key="3">Three</li>
];

It really shines in the case of generating elements from an array of data.

let data = [
  { value: "One", key: "1" },
  { value: "Two", key: "2" },
  { value: "Three", key: "3" }
];
return data.map(item => {
  return (
    <li key={item.key}>
      {item.value}
    </li>
  );
});

No need to wrap the result in a <div>!
