its searching

Yet another small React project, I make these to get more comfortable with the framework and Javascript. I made this one with the intent on consuming an API.

Things I learned with this project:

Better structure, separation of concerns, a single point of entry. That is to say I only need to fetch the API in one place and send out that data to all the children components. I have another React project that I’m going to refactor as I was calling the API on several different components, even at the time of doing it I knew it was wrong (DRY) but did it anyway.

Component life cycles. Granted I only used one (componentWillMount()), I’ve become familiar with the others to some extent, at the very least I’m aware of their uses.
