Overview of this book

React Hooks revolutionize how you manage state and effects in your web applications. They enable you to build simple and concise React.js applications, along with helping you avoid using wrapper components in your applications, making it easy to refactor code. This React book starts by introducing you to React Hooks. You will then get to grips with building a complex UI in React while keeping the code simple and extensible. Next, you will quickly move on to building your first applications with React Hooks. In the next few chapters, the book delves into various Hooks, including the State and Effect Hooks. After covering State Hooks and understanding how to use them, you will focus on the capabilities of Effect Hooks for adding advanced functionality to React apps. You will later explore the Suspense and Context APIs and how they can be used with Hooks. Toward the concluding chapters, you will learn how to integrate Redux and MobX with React Hooks. Finally, the book will help you develop the skill of migrating your existing React class components, and Redux and MobX web applications to Hooks. By the end of this book, you will be well-versed in building your own custom Hooks and effectively refactoring your React applications.

Using Community Hooks

In the previous chapter, we implemented routing using the Navi library. We started by implementing pages, then defining routes and static links. Finally, we implemented dynamic links and accessed route information using Hooks.

In this chapter, we are going to learn about various Hooks that are provided by the React community. These Hooks can be used to simplify input handling, and implement React life cycles in order to simplify migration from React class components. Furthermore, there are Hooks that implement various behaviors such as timers, checking if the client is online, hover and focus events, and data manipulation. Finally, we are going to learn about responsive design and implementing undo/redo functionality using Hooks.

The following topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • Simplifying input handling using the Input Hook
  • Implementing React life...
