  • The < Route > component is one of the most useful components of React Router v4 and the idea behind it is simple, wherever you want to render something when only there is a match with the location’s path you can use a Route component.
  • We can just append the name to be used for the variable plus a colon : to the end of the route’s path, for example: – – When there is a path match an object which has the following properties will be created and passed to the component: – -…
  • First we import the necessary routing components such as Route and BrowserRouter – – Next we create the base layout component, besides common HTML tags we also use React Router v4 components Link and Route: – – Next we create our pages: – – And finally we create the App…
  • In our example app we used the prop exact in the Route for component HomePage – – That’s because React Router v4 uses inclusive routing instead of exclusive routing used by React Router v3 so without exact property the home component will be rendered with all other components, for example…
  • You can also navigate inside your React application using methods from the history object, for example: – – Which are equivalent to: – – Whenever you want to redirect to another location, you can place component which is when rendered will redirect to the location specified in to prop that…

In this tutorial we are going to get you started with react-router-dom using an example React application showing you how to use different concepts such as Link and NavLink for creating links (instead of anchors) in the React way, Switch and exact for enabling exclusive routing and browser routing history.

Perhaps the most suitable way to see how React Router v4 works is by writing a simple multiple-page React app using the new router concepts. Our example app will have routes to home, about, contact, login, register and profile components/pages. But first lets have a tour of React Router v4 concepts and how they differ from React Router v3?

Before v4 there was React Router v3, React router v4 is a complete re-write so what’s the difference between these two React routers? here is a summary list of most differences:

React-router-dom is the version of React Router v4 designed for web applications, React Router v4 was divided into three packages:

react-router hosts the core components for routing for React applications, react-router-dom provides browser specific components for routing web apps and react-router-native provides specific components for react-native or mobile apps created with React Native. So you should either install react-router-dom or react-router-native as both export their corresponding environments components plus what react-router exports.

Since we are building a web application not a native mobile app we…
