React 16 Error Boundaries Let You Recover Gracefully

By Jason Skowronski | October 11, 2017

React recently announced the release of version 16 with long standing feature requests including error boundaries, fragments, improved server-side rendering and more. Error boundaries are especially useful so that an error in one small part of the UI doesn’t break your entire application. Instead, it’s better to contain those errors to the affected components and recover gracefully.

You can try using error boundaries yourself in our working Codepen example.
