List of options
Option 1: We use the default empty state component.
Option 2: We use the default empty state component and modify the description from "No data" to "No results found".
- This default component is already used implicitly in a lot of other components that have empty states. There is a development cost everytime we move away from one of their components
- The "No data" description is not as user friendly or familiar as it could be.
- "No results found" is more familiar than "No data".
- There is a development cost everytime we move away from one of their components.
Option 1: We use the default empty state component. This did not feel like an appropriate use case for maintaining a component long term.
