There seem to be no way to properly unmount components from domNode at the moment. Or maybe I am missing something?) Any plans to add unmountComponentAtNode method? Thanks =)

parent is the node you want to render into, root is the node that got rendered by your preact.render() call.

Here’s a JSFiddle example:

I should also add that you can do this using a wrapper component that returns null:

const Nothing = () => null;

let root = render(<MyComponent />, document.body);

// un-render:
render(<Nothing />, document.body, root);

For “unrendering”, I tend to do this:

render('', parent, root);

… but I agree that’s a bit of a hack. If the implementation of unmountComponentAtNode is small enough, I will absolutely try to add it to Preact itself.
