Learn React Hooks

By: Daniel Bugl

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.

Dealing with useEffect dependencies

In addition to enforcing the rules of Hooks, we are also checking whether all the variables that are used in an Effect Hook are passed to its dependency array. This exhaustive dependencies rule ensures that whenever something that is used inside the Effect Hook changes (a function, value, and so on), the Hook will trigger again.

As we have seen in the previous section, there are a couple warnings related to the exhaustive dependencies rule when running the linter with npm run lint. Often, it has to do with the dispatch function or other functions not being part of the dependency array. Usually, these functions should not change, but we can never be sure, so it is better to just add them to the dependencies.
