useFetch

The useFetch custom hook from the pol-ui library allows you to conveniently fetch data from a specified URL in a React component. It handles loading, error, and fetched states, as well as caching responses for improved performance.

Importation

Make sure you are importing the useFetch hook from the pol-ui library in your React component.

import { useFetch } from "pol-ui";

Usage

Import the useFetch hook in your React component and use it to fetch data from a given URL.

import { useFetch } from "pol-ui";
 
function MyComponent() {
  const url = "https://api.example.com/data";
  const options = {
    method: "GET",
    headers: {
      "Content-Type": "application/json",
    },
  };
 
  const { data, error } = useFetch(url, options);
 
  if (error) {
    return <div>Error: {error.message}</div>;
  }
 
  if (!data) {
    return <div>Loading...</div>;
  }
 
  // Render your component with the fetched data
  return (
    <div>
      <h1>Fetched Data:</h1>
      <pre>{JSON.stringify(data, null, 2)}</pre>
    </div>
  );
}

This example demonstrates how to use the useFetch hook to fetch data from the specified API endpoint.

Parameters

  • url (string): The URL from which to fetch data.
  • options (RequestInit): Optional configurations for the fetch API.

##┬┤Return Value An object with the following properties:

  • data (T | undefined): The fetched data.
  • error (Error | undefined): Any error that occurred during the fetch.

Notes

The hook uses a simple caching mechanism to store and retrieve responses for the same URL, improving performance by avoiding redundant requests.

It includes a cleanup mechanism to prevent state updates after a component is unmounted.
