How can I get unique keys mapping an array of arrays?

My prop is arrays: [[], [], []] with each inner array containing objects with different values. I’m mapping over the array, then passing the inner arrays to another component like so (really dumbed down example),

{ => <div key={???}><InnerComponent values={values} /></div>)}

I’m getting the warning about a unique key, but I can’t think of a great way to derive a key other than stringify, which seems really heavy-handed. The user can add/remove items, so index isn’t a good solution.


Instead of passing down an array of arrays, pass down an object of objects instead, generating random unique keys for the objects, and use that for the key. Something like

function uuidv4() {
  return 'xxxxxxxx-xxxx-4xxx-yxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx'.replace(/[xy]/g, function(c) {
    var r = Math.random() * 16 | 0, v = c == 'x' ? r : (r & 0x3 | 0x8);
    return v.toString(16);

and instead of

    // ...


  <randomUUID>: {
    <randomUUID>: value1,
    <randomUUID>: value2,
    <randomUUID>: value3
    // ...

where a UUID is generated only when a new item is generated, or on mount – once an item is paired with a UUID, it should stay paired until the item is deleted.
