Love React Query, best library ever.
With React Query managing data for me, I find myself not wanting any third-party state management library. React's own state management is more than enough!

Coming from the same author as React Query, @tannerlinsley , React Table is a headless table library, loving it too, making tables has never been so easy.

Form: React Hook Form with yup, yes, love it.

Tooling/Building: Nrwl/Nx, love it.

UI: Material UI, love it.

Editor: TinyMCE, so easy to work with, coupled with React Hook Form, template-based document editing is so easy to build.

For importing Excel: xlsx, love it

Data table: Ag-Grid

We recently migrated from MOBX to SWR, interested in trying out react query now. MUI for sure, I prefer react form hook over formik any day, yup yup. We built our own data table hook but it’s gotten bloated and causing perf issues. Diggin reacts provided tools, they seem to keep it logical without any waving hands in the way.

I'm to new react, been using vue for a long time.
I'm curious how SWR is interchangeable with mobx.

Isn't SWR for data fetching? while mobx acts as a global store?

is there something I'm missing here with SWR so I can completely get rid of mobx.

no hate for mobx though. I love it and it's more or less similar to vuex if you've used vue.js

You are correct, One wasn’t intended to replace the other per say, it has more to do with the type of app it is. It’s a teacher student math tool with focus on live interactions between them. So we’re making frequent api calls, as well as web sockets coming in for every problem answered. This causes an already taxing state management system to get triggered unnecessarily. And with SWR fetching the most recent data whether it be from ws or http it’s just not necessary to be storing all that in state. Miss MOBX tho, used the console getStore all the time. Now I’m stuck either drilling through REACTdevtools component section or simply console logging. Learning exactly how and when to use, useRef, useState, useMemo, useEffect, or context has been beneficial, personal skill wise.

I haven’t used Vue. Some redux and been curious about Sustand, but for now it’s classic State management for me.
