🕹 Usage

Here's a quick example of how to (not-so) dangerously render video embeds with VCR:

import React from 'react'
import VCR from '@helpscout/vcr'

// Your markup which many contain fancy video embeds
const html = `
<script src="//fast.wistia.com/assets/external/E-v1.js" async></script>
<div class="wistia_embed wistia_async_abcde12345" style="width:640px;height:360px;"></div>

// Pass it into VCR via the html prop
const App = props => (
  return (
    <VCR html={html} />

That's it! VCR will take care of parsing and rendering the video embeds as it "dangerously" sets the innerHTML to render out the rest of your HTML.
