There are no specific benefits, it's a choice we made during the prototyping stage.
We used create-react-app for our React templates. They include mostly class components. Switching to functional components is something that I was considering but, TBH, I don’t think to get into a so big refactoring process soon (we have been distributing 14 templates!).
No React Router v6 yet!
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
