My solution to Practicing State in React

Hi all,

First off, thanks to Laura for these updated React courses! They're very clear and provide a good understanding of the topics covered.

In this practice session, I thought I would share my solution to this challenge, as it was a little different to Laura's solution.

The git repo for my project files can be found here

The main differences are in the StarRating.js file.

Instead of rendering a seperate function to generate the renderStars component, I did this using a map directly in the JSX:

{[1, 2, 3, 4, 5].map((value) => (
    // ...

I also added the same functionality to de-select a rating when it is clicked again whilst completing the code challenge. However, instead of using an if statement to reset the rating to 0, I used a ternary operator to toggle between the newRating and 0:

const updatedRating = newRating === rating ? 0 : newRating;

Really enjoyed working on this one!

Kind regards, Berian
