If you want to start from the First Part Refer Play With the React 🐘Router.

How to apply active styles whenever URL/path matches in React Router?

  • NavLink component is available for styling the Nav items.
  • we need to use NavLink Instead Of Link Component.

React Router

Two Properties are available for styling.

  • activeClassName
  • activeStyle.

activeClassName: we need to pass the class name.
activeStyle: we need to pass the styles as an object.

Now let's see activeStyle property in Practice.


How to Handle 404 requests in React Router?

We need to wrap the all of our routes with Switch component.

Switch: It helps us to render the Component only when particular path/URL matches.

Final Output.

Happy coding...
