JavaScript Customizing Your Project

the arrow function

why there are parenthesis instead of curly brackets in the arrow function in minute 05:30

2 Answers

It is React syntax. In React, you put HTML-like code between ( and )


But shouldn't you have the arrow function use curly brackets and then use a return statement inside the function component?

I believe the return statement is implicit.

so instead of

()=>{ return ( //some jsx ) }

you omit the curly braces and return statement and and just use parenthesis to group together multiple lines of jsx in the return statement
