React + TypeScript - Super Hero/Villain Site

ganesh profile image Ganesh Raja Updated on ・2 min read

Yesterday Worked on a simple node js API that returns Super Hero Data with typescript implementation.

Today I decided to work on a React Site (with TS implementation ) that Randomly displays a superhero/villain details from the node js API.

This page randomly displays a hero or villain data and when you click on show Random Hero it displays other hero. You can find the full code in my git repo.

Alt Text

Tomorrow will work on improving the code

Here is a sample code

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import axios from 'axios';
import { Container, Row, Col, Button } from 'reactstrap';

import SuperHeroDetails from '../custom_types/SuperHeroData';
import DisplaySuperHeroProperty from './DisplaySuperHeroProperties';

const apiClient = axios.create({
  baseURL: 'http://localhost:3000',
  responseType: 'json',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',

type SuperHeroData = {
  data: SuperHeroDetails;

export default class DisplaySuperHeroDetails extends Component<{}, SuperHeroData> {
  loadNewSuperHeroDetails = async () => {
    try {
      const response = await apiClient.get('/');
      this.setState({ data: response.data });
    } catch (err) {
  componentDidMount() {

  render() {
    if (this.state === null || !('data' in this.state)) return <div>Loading</div>;
    const { data } = this.state;
    return (
        <Container style={{ paddingTop: '30px', border: '2px solid red', borderRadius: '40px', margin: '40 auto' }}>
          <h1 style={{ textAlign: 'center' }}>{data.name}</h1>

          <Row style={{ padding: '20px' }}>
            <Col lg={8}>
              <DisplaySuperHeroProperty name={'Full Name'} data={data.biography.fullName} />
              <DisplaySuperHeroProperty name={'First Appearance'} data={data.biography.firstAppearance} />
              <DisplaySuperHeroProperty name={'Gender'} data={data.appearance.gender} />
              <DisplaySuperHeroProperty name={'Race'} data={data.appearance.race} />
              <DisplaySuperHeroProperty name={'Power'} data={data.powerstats.power} />
              <DisplaySuperHeroProperty name={'Speed'} data={data.powerstats.speed} />
              <DisplaySuperHeroProperty name={'Strength'} data={data.powerstats.strength} />
              <DisplaySuperHeroProperty name={'Intelligence'} data={data.powerstats.intelligence} />
              <DisplaySuperHeroProperty name={'Combat'} data={data.powerstats.combat} />
            <Col LG={4}>
              <img alt={'superhero'} src={data.images.md} />
          className={'justify-content-center mx-auto d-block'}
          style={{ margin: '40px' }}
          Show Random SuperHero
