Hooks

useDebounceState

The useDebounceState hook is a custom React hook that provides a debounced version of the useState hook. It allows you to delay the update of a state value until a specified amount of time has passed without any new updates. This can be useful in scenarios where you want to reduce the number of rapid updates and perform some actions only after a certain delay.

Syntax

The useDebounceState hook takes two parameters: value, ms

value (required): The initial value of the state.

ms (optional, default: 200): The debounce delay in milliseconds.

Example

import { useDebounceState } from 'useful-custom-react-hooks'

function App() {
  const [value, setValue] = useDebounceState < string > ('', 1000)

  return (
    <main>
      <h1>{value}</h1>
      <input
        type="text"
        defaultValue={value}
        placeholder="Type here"
        onChange={(e) => setValue(e.target.value)}
      />
    </main>
  )
}
export default App

useStorage

The useStorage hook provides a simplified way to read and write data to the browser's localStorage.

Syntax

useStorage takes two parameters: key and initialState

key (required): The key to use for storing and retrieving data from localStorage.

initialState (optional): The initial state

Example

import { useStorage } from 'useful-custom-react-hooks'

function App() {
  const [data, setData] = useStorage < { message: string } > 'myData'

  const handleSetData = () => {
    setData({
      message: 'hello world',
    })
  }
  const handleDelete = () => {
    // to delete localStorage item just set it to null
    setData(null)
  }

  console.log(data) // {message: 'hello world'}

  return (
    <main>
      <button onClick={handleSetData}>set data</button>
      <button onClick={handleDelete}>delete</button>
      <h1>{data?.message}</h1>
    </main>
  )
}
export default App

useIntersection

The useIntersection hook allows you to track the intersection of a target element with its containing element or the viewport.

Syntax

The useIntersection takes three parameters: root, rootMargin, threshold, once

root (optional): The element that is used as the viewport for checking the target's intersection.

rootMargin (optional): Margin around the root element.

threshold (optional): A number or an array of numbers indicating at what percentage of the target's visibility the observer's callback should be executed.

once (optional, default: false): A boolean indicating whether to observe once

Example

Tailwind used in this example.

import { useIntersection } from 'useful-custom-react-hooks'

function App() {
  const { isIntersecting, ref } = useIntersection({ rootMargin: '-100px' })

  console.log(isIntersecting)

  return (
    <main className="flex flex-col min-h-screen items-center justify-center">
      <div className="h-screen"></div>
      <div ref={ref}>
        {isIntersecting ? 'Intersecting' : 'Not intersecting'}
      </div>
      <div className="h-screen"></div>
    </main>
  )
}
export default App

useFetch

The useFetch hook simplifies making HTTP requests and handling the response asynchronously. It provides the fetched data, error information, and a function to trigger a refetch.

Syntax

The useFetch takes two parameters: url, opts

url (required): The URL to fetch.

opts (optional): An object with additional options for the fetch request.

Example

import { useFetch } from 'useful-custom-react-hooks'

function App() {
  const { data, isFetching, error, refetch } = useFetch(
    'https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/todos/1'
  )

  if (isFetching) {
    return <div>Loading...</div>
  }

  if (error) {
    return <div>Error: {error}</div>
  }

  return (
    <main>
      <div>{JSON.stringify(data)}</div>
      <button onClick={() => refetch()}>Refetch</button>
    </main>
  )
}

export default App

useCookie

The useCookie is a hook that simplifies the handling of browser cookies in your React applications.

Syntax

The useCookie takes one parameter: key

key (required): The name of the cookie.

Example

import { useCookie } from 'useful-custom-react-hooks'

function App() {
  const [cookie, setCookie] = useCookie('my_cookie')

  const handleSetCookie = () => {
    // setCookie takes two parameters: value, opts
    setCookie('cookie_value', {
      expires: new Date(Date.now() + 3600000), // Expires in 1 hour
    })
  }

  const handleDeleteCookie = () => {
    // to delete cookie set it to null or set expires in opts to past date
    setCookie(null)
  }

  return (
    <main>
      <button onClick={handleSetCookie}>Set cookie</button>
      <button onClick={handleDeleteCookie}>Delete cookie</button>
      <h1>{cookie}</h1>
    </main>
  )
}
