React Portals are a powerful feature in React that allows you to render components outside the current React tree hierarchy. With portals, you can easily render elements into different parts of the DOM, such as modals, tooltips, or any other component that needs to break out of the component’s container.
In this article, we’ll explore React Portals, how they work, and how you can use them effectively in your React applications.
