Are React and Window Friends

October 24, 2019

This week, I've been trying to hack around picking up function "from the ground", meaning global variables attached to window. Trying to discover whether I'm doing evil things or not, I decided to look into what React does with the window object.

This post is not yet written, dumping in a bunch of links for now.



  • most window accesses are to grab React and ReactDOM from window
  • a lot of window.location.search
  • a lot of the search results come from "fixtures", what are those?
