How to build an HTML table using ReactJS from arrays ?
If we have an array and want to build an HTML table of it using ReactJS we can use the map function. The map() method iterates through each element of the array and will convert it into a table row. First, we will create a table tag then first, we will iterate through the heading/column names of the table and convert them into a table header using the <th> tag.
