wondering what the pattern for best practice is when using { this.props.etc } as opposed to {this.props.etc}?

cant seem to find a consistent pattern going on and google isn't really helping. thanks!

Dan Ogrodnik It depends on the company you work for. In some instances there are best practices for code formatting and in other small instances like this one, each team may do it differently. Personally I like { this.props.etc } because it's more spaced out and easier to read. The code will likely be minified after the fact (which will rid of all unnecessary whitespace). With that being the case, I like to try and make the original code as readable as possible because it will be stripped of those spaces anyways later.

Hope this helps!
