Hello,Dev Friends.In this article I have written about a list of certain public APIs which you can use for practice as a beginner in React/JavaScript.Before starting with creating Apps in React using Public APIs,learn React basics and about fetch/axios,http requests,JSON.Learn to read the documentation of any API for its usage.
