How to Override Default Props in React

The following code explains how you can override the default props in react. 

In this example the default of quantity is set to 0, so we can pass in quantity in the items to override its default value. 

return <Items quantity={10} />

HTML

<div id="challenge-node"></div>

}

Items.defaultProps = {
  quantity: 0
}

class ShoppingCart extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
  }
  render() {
    { /* Change code below this line */ }
    return <Items quantity={10} />
    { /* Change code above this line */ }
  }
};
ReactDOM.render(<ShoppingCart />, document.getElementById('challenge-node'));</script>

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
