Basic example of React Router: BrowserRouter, Link, Route, and Switch
// BrowserRouter is the router implementation for HTML5 browsers (vs Native).
// Link is your replacement for anchor tags.
// Route is the conditionally shown component based on matching a path to a URL.
// Switch returns only the first matching route rather than all matching routes.
import {
BrowserRouter as Router,
Link,
Route,
Switch,
} from 'react-router-dom';
import React from 'react';
const Home = () => <h1>Home</h1>;
const About = () => <h1>About</h1>;
// We give each route either a target `component`, or we can send functions in `render` or `children`
// that return valid nodes. `children` always returns the given node whether there is a match or not.
const App = () => (
<Router>
<div>
<Link to="/">Home</Link>{' '}
<Link to={{pathname: '/about'}}>About</Link>{' '}
<Link to="/contact">Contact</Link>
<Switch>
<Route path="/" component={Home} />
<Route path="/about" component={About} />
<Route
path="/contact"
render={() => <h1>Contact Us</h1>} />
<Route path="/blog" children={({match}) => (
<li className={match ? 'active' : ''}>
<Link to="/blog">Blog</Link>
</li>)} />
<Route render={() => <h1>Page not found</h1>} />
</Switch>
</div>
</Router>
);
