The Provider component should wrap your entire application and never be unmounted. It will automatically interface with any ol-kit children within the component tree and connect them to context for things like map, translations and selectInteraction props. A <Map> mounts a <Provider> for you behind the scenes, but if you mount <Provider> declaratively (see below), components do not have to be children of <Map> (only <Provider>).

Fully integrated example:

import React from 'react'
import { Map, Popup, Provider } from '@bayer/ol-kit'

function App() {
  return (
      <Map />
      <Popup />

export default App

Make sure the never unmounts!
