It was a great idea to use git and create portal like GitHub and share source code among other developers. One of the benefits is, you do not need to reinvent the wheel and just use package you need. And because lot of users will add it to their projects, it gets well tested. But I can see there a big problem: maintenance.
I am working on React app with couple of other developers. And you know it, you need this component, that functionality, etc. so you google it, install the package and the work is done. Is it ok to work like this? Do you even know what exactly you added to your project and do you really need it?
If you are working on a project, you sure use open source projects, libraries and frameworks. All these stuff helps you build something amazing and do it faster. And also you know what a good feeling it is, when someone write a good review or give your fan page like. So do the same.
You are creating an application that shows data to the user - doesn't matter if he is searching for some specific thing or he is only listing everything you have. What happens if the server responds with empty array? Or with error? Will your application show only empty space or an error message?
