And if you are using old devices with old browsers which do not provide natively(internet explore <11 or internet explorer 11), including a global polyfill in bundled applications such as core-js.

To support earlier browsers, a polyfilled environment for React 16 using core-js may look like this:


import 'core-js/es/map';
import 'core-js/es/set';


import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';


ReactDOM.render(
  <h1>Hello, world!</h1>,
  document.getElementById('root')
);

raf package is used to shim requestAnimationFrame on which react depends:

import 'raf/polyfill';
