Learn React Hooks

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.

In this chapter we first learned what Redux is, as well as when and why it should be used. Then, we learned about the three principles of Redux. Next, we used Redux in practice to handle state in our ToDo application. We also learned about synchronous and asynchronous action creators. Then, we learned how to use Redux with Hooks, and how to migrate an existing Redux application to a Hook-based solution. Finally, we learned about the trade-offs of using Redux and Reducer Hooks.

In the next and final chapter, we are going to learn about handling state with MobX. We are going to learn what MobX is and how to use it the traditional way with React. Then, we are going to learn how to use MobX with Hooks, and we will also understand how to migrate an existing MobX application to a Hook-based solution.
