How to use React History in React JS

Hi guys.

Ok so today we I will give you all the simple steps to use
Browser History in React JS.
Now you might be wondering, what is it for?
**React Router History **can be used to go to a previous page or to go to the appropriate response page, for example after a user logs in, he should be redirected to the dashboard page.

Step 1

Install react router dom.

npm install --save react-router-dom
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step 2

Import the history package from react router dom.

import { useHistory } from "react-router-dom"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step 3

Assign the history function to a variable (not necessary but
recommended)

const history = useHistory()
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step 4

Use the push() function to redirect the user after a successful login, for example.

history.push("/dashboard")
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here we are sending the user to the dashboard.


And there you go!.
