Reactjs Error: Adjacent JSX elements must be wrapped in an enclosing tag

This is a very common Reactjs error, specially for beginners. If you are getting this error you code probably looks like this:

class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
        <Component1></Component1>
        <Component2></Component2>
    );
  }
}

The problem is that your render function is returning two elements, it’s equivalent to adding two return statements to your function, and reactjs won’t allow that.

The solution is very simple, you just have to add an enclosing tag as described in the error message. After this modification the code should look like this:

class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <Component1></Component1>
        <Component2></Component2>
      </div>
    );
  }
}

As you can see I’ve added a div as an enclosing tag, now the function is returning only one element. This this should fix the problem, but if it doesn’t please let me know in the comments.
