React Hooks and Context Section Sum Up

useState Hook

  • The useState hook is used to add state functionality;
  • It allows us to declare and manage state variables within a component;
  • By calling the useState hook, we can initialize a state variable and a corresponding setter function;
  • Updating the state variable triggers a re-render of the component, reflecting the new state value.

useRef Hook

  • The useRef hook provides a way to create mutable variables that persist across component renders;
  • Unlike useState, useRef doesn't trigger a re-render when its value changes;
  • It's commonly used to access or store references to DOM elements, manage previous values, or preserve values between renders.

useEffect Hook

  • The useEffect hook enables us to perform side effects;
  • We can use useEffect to handle tasks such as data fetching, subscriptions, or interacting with the DOM;
  • By specifying dependencies, we control when the effect runs, optimizing performance and preventing unnecessary re-renders.

useMemo Hook

  • The useMemo hook allows for the memoization of expensive calculations or computations;
  • It takes a function and a dependencies array and returns a memoized value;
  • Providing a dependencies array ensures that the memoized value is only recomputed when the dependencies change. This optimization can significantly improve performance by avoiding unnecessary recalculations.

Context

  • Context allows passing data through the component tree without requiring explicit props drilling;
  • It enables global state management and allows components to access shared data;
  • Context consists of two main parts: the Context object and the Context Provider;
  • The Context object holds the shared data, while the Provider component wraps the part of the component tree that needs access to that data;
  • Consuming components can access the data using the useContext hook.
1. Which hook is used to access shared data from a Context in a consuming component?
2. When using the `useEffect` hook, what is the purpose of specifying dependencies in the dependency array?
3. What is the primary benefit of memoizing values using the `useMemo` hook?
