React Router Dom In ReactJS

React Router is a popular library for adding routing to React applications. It provides a simple way to declaratively specify which components should be rendered based on the current URL. In this blog, we’ll look at how to use React Router to add routing to a React app.

To start, you’ll need to install the react-router-dom library, which provides the components and functions you’ll need to add routing to your React app. You can install it using npm or yarn

npm install react-router-dom


yarn add react-router-dom

Once you’ve installed the library, you’ll need to import the BrowserRouter component from react-router-dom and wrap your entire app with it. The BrowserRouter component uses the HTML5 history API to keep the UI in sync with the current URL.

Here’s an example of how to use the BrowserRouter component to wrap your app:

import { BrowserRouter } from 'react-router-dom';

    <App />

Next, you’ll need to define your routes. A route is a declarative way to specify which component should be rendered for a given URL. In React Router, you can use the Route component to define a route. The Route component takes a path prop, which specifies the URL pattern for the route, and a component prop, which specifies the component that should be rendered when the route matches the current URL.

Here’s an example of how to define some routes using the Route component:

import { Route } from 'react-router-dom';

function App() {
  return (
      <Route path="/" exact component={Home} />
      <Route path="/about" component={About} />
      <Route path="/users/:id" component={User} />

In the example above, the Home component will be rendered for the root URL (/), the About component will be rendered for the /about URL, and the User component will be rendered for URLs that match the pattern /users/:id. The :id part of the URL is a dynamic segment, which means that it can match any value. For example, the route /users/1 would match the User component, and the route /users/2 would also match the User component.

To navigate between routes, you can use the Link component from react-router-dom. The Link component takes a to prop, which specifies the URL that the link should navigate to when clicked.

Here’s an example of how to use the Link component to navigate between routes:

import { Link } from 'react-router-dom';

function Home() {
  return (
      <Link to="/about">About</Link>

In the example above, clicking the “About” link will navigate the user to the /about URL.
