  1. Nice article. Just one question – In Infinite scroll approach, more items will keep on appending to the list until all the the items are downloaded. Wouldn’t it make the DOM heavy eventually thereby causing the performance issues again?

  2. Excellent Article here. The pagination example was not useful I had to build my own component from scratch. In reply to the. above comment, the items of the list are only rendered when they appear on the window because of scrolling the list. react-window must estimate the number of rows that can fit into the height of the screen and only that number of items are rendered
