In React and Typescript it’s sometimes tricky to pass in a component as a prop. We do that using React.FunctionComponent or React.FC as a shorthand.


React.FC uses a type parameter for props, eg. use React.FC or React.FC<> when no parameters are needed, and React.FC<{ paramName1: string, paramName2: int}> for a functional component which takes in 2 parameters of type string and int respectively.
