React Default props


defaultProps allows you to set default, or fallback, values for your component props. defaultProps are useful when you call components from different views with fixed props, but in some views you need to pass different value.

Syntax


ES5


var MyClass = React.createClass({
 getDefaultProps: function() {
 return {
 randomObject: {},
...
 };
 }
}

ES6


class MyClass extends React.Component {...}
MyClass.defaultProps = {
 randomObject: {},
 ...
}

ES7


class MyClass extends React.Component {
 static defaultProps = {
 randomObject: {},
 ...
 };
}

The result of getDefaultProps() or defaultProps will be cached and used to ensure that this.props.randomObject will have a value if it was not specified by the parent component.
