Hooks in React have been life-changing for React developers they provide a simple elegant way to write code that is more readable and maintainable. There are only a few handfuls of hooks provided by React depending on our use case we create custom hooks.
Before creating your own custom hooks library, you can refer to the following React hooks libraries to help your project.
1. React Query
Hooks to fetch, store, and update data asynchronously in React. It contains self-managed, always up-to-date declarative queries and mutations that directly improve your developer and user experience.
Transport/protocol/backend agnostic data fetching (REST, GraphQL, promises, whatever!)
Auto Caching + Refetching (stale-while-revalidate, Window Refocus, Polling/Realtime)
Parallel + Dependent Queries
Mutations + Reactive Query Refetching
Multi-layer Cache + Automatic Garbage Collection
Paginated + Cursor-based Queries
Load-More + Infinite Scroll Queries w/ Scroll Recovery
React Suspense + Fetch-As-You-Render Query Prefetching
2. React Use
React use has a collection of essential React Hooks for managing devices sensors, UI controls, animations, side-effects, Lifecycle, State, and more
It is an awesome package that is used as the replacement for Fetch API
SSR (server-side rendering) support
2 dependencies (use-ssr, urs)
GraphQL support (queries + mutations)
Provider to set default URL and options
React Native support
Aborts/Cancels pending HTTP requests when a component unmounts
Persistent caching support
The react-sensor hook monitors the state of a CSS media query. There needs to be a simple solution to this as media queries are extremely important to the responsiveness of any app or website.
5. React Hooks Form
React Hooks for form state management and validation (Web + React Native). It reduces the amount of code you need to write while removing unnecessary re-renders.
Built with performance, UX, and DX in mind
Embraces native HTML form validation
Out-of-the-box integration with UI libraries
Small size and no dependencies
Support Yup, Zod, AJV, Superstruct, Joi, Vest, class-validator, io-ts, nope, and custom build
6. Redux Hooks
Redux is a most popular state management library, most of all already using Redux. Redux Hooks offers an alternative to HOC (Higher Order Component) pattern with the existing connect() method. Redux Hooks made a simple way to connect to the store, fetch data, and dispatch action. Let’s see it.
Popular Redux Hooks -
It let create local states using React Hooks and use it as a React Context only when needed with minimum effort
Hooks are reusable, clean and simple functionality that you can integrate into your workflow. They offer a lot of possibilities for different uses, so you don't have to build them from scratch.
There are many other hook libraries. I chose only the most popular and well-maintained ones. If I missed a good library, write it in the comments section.
