Avoid usage of the return value of ReactDOM.render

Severity: Warning

Category: Best Practices


Using the return value of the render method is a legacy feature. If you have a valid reason to reference the root React instance, you should assign a callback ref to the root component.

Non-Compliant Code Examples
