You can also use other libraries for network calls. One very popular library is axios (https://github.com/axios/axios), which you can install in your React app with npm:

npm install axios

You must add the following import statement to your React component before using it:

import axios from 'axios';

The axios library has some benefits, such as automatic transformation of the JSON data, so you don’t need the json() function when using axios. The following code shows an example call being made using axios:

axios.get('http ://someapi .com')
.then(response => console.log(response))
.catch(error => console.log(error))

The axios library has its own call methods for the different HTTP methods. For example, if you want to make a POST request and send an object in the body, axios provides the axios.post() method:

axios.post('http ://someapi .com', { newObject })
.then(response => console.log...
