Build encapsulated components that manage their own state, then compose them to make complex UIs.

`

class App extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <Keywords
        text={TEXT}
        maxKeywords={8}
        color="mistyrose"
      />
    )
  }
}

ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('container'))
