    Chapter 2: Creating a Portfolio in React with Reusable Components and Routing
About this book
Developed by Facebook, React is a popular library for building impressive user interfaces. React extends its capabilities to mobile platforms using the React Native framework and integrates with popular web and mobile tools to build scalable applications. React Projects is your guide to learning React development by using modern development patterns and integrating React with powerful web tools, such as GraphQL, Expo, and React 360. You'll start building a real-world project right from the first chapter and get hands-on with developing scalable applications as you advance to building more complex projects. Throughout the book, you'll use the latest versions of React and React Native to explore features such as routing, Context, and Hooks on multiple platforms, which will help you build full-stack web and mobile applications efficiently. Finally, you'll get to grips with unit testing with Jest and end-to-end testing with Cypress to build test-driven apps. By the end of this React book, you'll have developed the skills necessary to start building scalable React apps across web and mobile platforms.

Chapter 2: Creating a Portfolio in React with Reusable Components and Routing

Do you already feel familiar with React's core concepts after completing the first chapter? Great! This chapter will be no problem for you! If not, don't worry – most of the concepts you came across in the previous chapter will be repeated. However, if you want to get more experience with Webpack and Babel, it's recommended that you try creating the project in Chapter 1, Creating a Single-Page Application in React, again since this chapter won't be covering those topics.

In this chapter, you'll work with Create React App, a starter kit created by the React core team to get you started with React quickly. It will make the configuration of module bundlers and compilers such as Webpack and Babel unnecessary, as this will be taken care of by the Create React App package. This means you can focus on building your portfolio application, which reuses React components and has routing. Besides that, we'll be adding routing using react-router v6, which is the leading library for routing in React.

Alongside setting up Create React App, the following topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • Creating a new project with Create React App
  • Building reusable React components
  • Routing with react-router

Can't wait? Let's go!

 

Project overview

In this chapter, we will create an application with React that makes use of reusable React components and styling using Create React App and styled-components. The application will use data that is fetched from the public GitHub API.

The build time is 1.5–2 hours.

 

Getting started

The project you'll create in this chapter will use the public API from GitHub, which you can find at https://docs.github.com/en/rest. To use this API, you need to have a GitHub account, since you'll want to retrieve information from a GitHub user account. If you don't have a GitHub account yet, you can create one on the GitHub website. The complete source code for this application can also be found on GitHub: https://github.com/PacktPublishing/React-Projects-Second-Edition/tree/main/Chapter02.
