Container Components From Presentational Components

Separate Container Components From Presentational Components: Apply

Separating container components from presentational components is a popular React programming pattern.

Here's the basic idea behind it: if a component has to have state, make calculations based on props, or manage any other complex logic, then that component shouldn't also have to render HTML-like JSX.

Instead of rendering HTML-like JSX, the component should render another component. It should be that component's job to render HTML-like JSX.

Following this pattern separates your business logic from your presentational logic, which is a Good Thing.
