A Comprehensive Guide to All React Hooks

React Hooks revolutionized the way we build functional components in React. They offer a powerful and concise way to manage state, side effects, and other functionalities. This blog post delves into all the core React Hooks, equipping you to craft dynamic and interactive React applications.

The Essential Hooks:

1. useState: The cornerstone for managing state within functional components. It returns an array containing the current state value and a function to update it.

2.useEffect: Manages side effects in functional components, such as data fetching, subscriptions, or DOM manipulation that occurs after rendering. It accepts a callback function and an optional dependency array to control when the effect runs.

3.useContext: Provides a way to share state across components without explicit prop drilling. It accepts a context object and returns the current context value.

4.useReducer: Manages complex state logic using a reducer function. It accepts a reducer function and an initial state, returning the current state and a dispatch function to update it.

5.useCallback: Memoizes a callback function to prevent unnecessary re-renders of child components that depend on it.

6.useMemo: Similar to useCallback, it memoizes a value based on its dependencies, preventing unnecessary re-computations.

7.useRef: Creates a mutable ref object that persists across re-renders.

8.useLayoutEffect: A specialized version of useEffect that runs after DOM mutations but before the browser paints the screen.

9.useImperativeHandle: Exposes imperative methods from a functional component to its parent component.

10.useDebugValue: (for development only) Allows you to display a custom value in the React DevTools for debugging purposes.
