React Router library makes the navigation experience of the client in your web page application more joyful, but how?!
React Router, indeed, prevent the page from being refreshed. Thus the blank page resulted from a refreshed page is not displayed while the user is navigating and routing through your web. This tool enables you to manipulate your web application routes through provided routing components and dynamic routing while the app is rendering.
How to start:
You need a React web app, to get started. If you don't have, install create-react-app and launch a new project using it. Then you need to install react-router-dom, applying either npm or yarn.
npm install --save react-router-dom yarn add react-router-dom
Now all the required components are installed. We are enabled to add any component to the App.js inside the router to build our unique web page. All these elements are the router children to which we specify their path. For instance, I add the components of Homepage, About, and Products inside the router where one can navigate through them. Also, React Router allows us to redirect our clients by a simple click on a button. To this purpose, import the Link to your component, define an onclick function for the button and redirect it to your intended path.
These are not all. There are other features in React Router. If you want to know how to install and benefit from it, join me in this YouTube video to decode the solution. I create the above-mentioned app and its components and explain all the features that we can use to improve it:
