Gotcha when adding Office UI Fabric React to SPFx

(Update for SPFx v1.7 - 2018-11-09)
This post is still valid for SPFx v1.7

When installing a reference to Office UI Fabric React make sure to run

npm i office-ui-fabric-react@lts --save

and not

npm i office-ui-fabric-react@latest --save

Lts is the latest stable version, which currently is v5.122.1 and in this case compatible with React 15 which is what SPFx uses. The latest version is 6.57.0 which require React 16, and won’t build with SPFx.
