How to make many http requests with react

Hi, please i'm stuck.
is somebody knows how to make many request in a react component or route?

componentDidMount = () => {
    const { match: { params } } = this.props
      .then(res => res.json())
      .then(work => this.setState({ work }))

      .then(res => res.json())
      .then(otherWorks => this.setState({ otherWorks }))

something like this that works.
I'm a beginner with React so i don't really want things like Redux
i just want a beginner way.The first fetch work but not the second

Did you find this post useful? Show some love!

I think promise.all() is going to be what you're looking for.

const firstFetch = fetch('some/resource')
const secondFetch = fetch('some/other/resource')

Promise.all([firstFetch, secondFetch])
  .then(values => {
    // do something with values
    // values[0] is the result of firstFetch
    // values[1] is the result of secondFetch
  .catch(error => {
    // handle any errors

if you have multiple callback asynchrous update the setState, you should consider this method to make sure they don't overwrite each other or race conditions:

this.setState( prevState => ({ ...prevState, work1: result });

this.setState( prevState => ({ ...prevState, work2: result });

Maybe it's not about the requests, but how you expect to use the responses. The React.Component's setState method is asynchronous, so you can't expect the component's state to have both work and otherWorks every time render() is called.
As Leighton suggested, Promise.all would help you make only one setState call, but it still doesn't cover the case right after mounting the component when neither of the values are present in the state.
Maybe consider adding a loading flag in the state that is set to false when both requests have completed, so render() can show a loading animation while the requests are still waiting for responses.

class MyComp extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = {
      loading: true,
      work: undefined,
      otherWorks: undefined
  componentDidMount = () => {
    const { match: { params } } = this.props
    const fetchWork = fetch(`/w/${}`)
    const fetchOtherWorks = fetch('/works')

    Promise.all([fetchWork, fetchOtherWorks])
      .then(([work, otherWorks]) => {
          loading: false,
      .catch(error => {
        // handle errors

  render() {
    const {loading, work, otherWorks} = this.state;
    if (loading) {
      return <div>Still loading!</div>
    } else {
       return (
         // whatever you want to do with `work` and `otherWorks`

Guys i'm sorry.It was a {} I'd forgotten somewhere really sorry.
And thanks for your answers i think it'll save my life in few days

Your code is making two requests at once - what isn't working about it exactly?

i'm supposed to receive an array of data in the otherWorks but i got an empty array
