Idiomatic Data Fetching using React Hooks

Idiomatic Data Fetching using React Hooks

This post has been written in collaboration with @klervicn

Virtually all web apps and websites need to pull data from a server, usually through a JSON-returning API. When it comes to integrating data fetching in React component, the "impedence mismatch" between the React components, which are declarative and synchronous, and the HTTP requests, which are imperative and asynchronous, is often problematic.

Many apps use third-party libraries such as Redux or Apollo Client to abstract it away. This requires extra dependencies, and couple your app with a specific library to perform data fetching. In most cases, what we want is a direct way to integrate plain HTTP requests (e.g. using native fetch) for usage in React components.

Here we will discuss how we can use React Hooks to do this in an elegant, scalable manner.

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite

Custom recipe to get OS X 10.10 Yosemite running from scratch, setup applications and developer environment. I use this gist to keep track of the important software and steps required to have a functioning system after a semi-annual fresh install. On average, I reinstall each computer from scratch every 6 months, and I do not perform upgrades between distros.

This keeps the system performing at top speeds, clean of trojans, spyware, and ensures that I maintain good organizational practices for my content and backups. I highly recommend this.

You are encouraged to fork this and modify it to your heart's content to match your own needs.
