Classes may not be a "modern" concept to React land, but classes are anything but unmodern. Classes are part of the ECMAScript specification, they are very much a real and implemented language-level feature. The React team spread a lot of dangerous and unsubstantiated rhetoric when they blamed classes for problems caused by their ineptitude.
