React children accepts function when explicitly typed #6889

this example demonstrates the same input to react children being treated differently by flow.

My understanding is that for built in html elements, children should be React.Node. However, React.Nodes should not be functions. The first example shows this behavior. However, if the function is explicitly typed, flow will not error on the react element.


import * as React from 'react'

const func = () => 'lol'

// fails
const comp = <div>{func}</div>
const otherFunc: () => string = () => 'hey now'

// no failure
const otherComp = <div>{otherFunc}</div>
