Dan made a simple mixin which uses neither
forceUpdate which is what I was exactly looking for.
The idea behind this mixin is that Backbone Models\Collections are set as
props and their
toJSON value is automatically put by mixin into
state. One needs to override
getBackboneState(props) for this to work, and optionally
watchBackboneProps to tell the mixin when to call
setState with fresh values.
###Usage Example The above mixin can be used with any React components as follows without having to worry about stale values in Backbone Model\Collection
###Conclusion I found this very helpful and hope you too can benefit from it.
