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.

Implementing routing

We are going to use the Navi library for routing. Navi supports React Suspense, Hooks, and error boundary APIs of React natively, which makes it the perfect fit to implement routing through the use of Hooks. To implement routing, we are first going to define routes from the pages that we defined in the previous section. Finally, we are going to define links from the main page to the corresponding post pages, and from these pages back to the main page.

Toward the end of this chapter, we are going to extend our routing functionality by implementing routing Hooks.

Defining routes

The first step when implementing routing is to install the navi and react-navi libraries. Then, we define the routes. Follow the...
