Hello rahulAtGit,

I'm sorry I didn't see your message before. I'm don't know whether you are familiar with the concepts of Node.js streams. So I will share some links that will hopefully help you. But in summary this method returns a Node.js Readable Stream. This has performance gains over i.e. renderToString since it doesn't wait to parse your React nodes into a string, instead it will sending you data as it is parsing. If you don't have a huge component I would advise you to use renderToString instead since it is much simpler.

Regarding the state while streaming, let me know what's your specific question. Cheers.
