Hello how are you ? My name is Robinson and I write to you from Venezuela. I just started to learn Reactjs ... and I would like if you could guide me on the beginning of the session. I already have the Login interface and I redirect to the dashboard (in this case) ... but I don't know how to handle the user session? also the expiration time of that session? I've seen examples with LocalStorage but I don't know if that's a good practice ... I'd like to know if you can help me with an example? I did my backend with NodeJs Express connected to a Sql Server database ... Greetings...my email : loretoruiz@hotmail.com

Okay, if i were in your shoes, i'd use localstorage or cookies.
but I prefer localstorage.
normally you will be getting a token from the backend when you are logging users right? so just do it this way:

this will be at the point of logging in users
axios.post ('url', {
user,
})
.then (response => {
localStorage.setItem ('token', 'randomstringtokentopersistdata');

then on your dashboard page, just go like this.

const token = localStorage.getItem ('token');

you can store this token in a state and use it all over your app as it can be accessed anywhere.

I understand friend ... and how do you manage the session expiration time?

Thread Thread
 
tobilastik profile image
Raji Oluwatobiloba

You can use JavaScript session storage

sessionStorage.setItem('token', 'randomstring')

const data = sessionStorage.getItem('token');

// to remove user data from sessionStorage

sessionStorage.removeItem('token');

I understand friend ... I have a doubt ... how are global variables handled in Reactjs ?? that is ... if I want to save and be able to use the variable == >> const name = '' in ALL my application; that variable will take a value when the user enters the system ... and from another component I want to use it ... that is, I want to get the value of that variable name ... can you help me?

Thread Thread
 
tobilastik profile image
Raji Oluwatobiloba

You can store that variable in state and pass it as props to whatever component you need it(you'll need to read more on passing props) React official documentation is the best place to start.

Moreover, you'll reach a stage where passing this supposed variable from one component to another will be a pain in the ass, then you should use a state management, the popular one is redux. You'll need to go learn redux too. But for now, since you're just starting to learn react, try learning how to pass state as a props from one component to another.

Let me know if you need more clarification.

Hello, this is Daniel Roy Greenfeld from Los Angeles, California, USA. I am python, javascript, and C#/Unity developer who has worked for NASA, EventBrite, and an InsureTech. I've written books on software, Two Scoops of Django and Django Crash Course. I'm working on more books for Python and C#/Unity.

I love being a constant learner and student. I eagerly devour what people have to say on coding. The day you stop being willing to learn is the day your career as a developer is over. :-)

I agree with you 100%. The desire to learn is integral to success as a developer. I've been a developer for over 20 years, across many different languages and technologies. Whenever I'm asked about this type of career, I point out that you will never really feel like you have arrived at a full understanding of anything - there is ALWAYS something new to learn and so many different areas of expertise. This is part of what I love about it! Never bored. ;-)

Thanks! ^_^ I really enjoy Ruby, and it's perfectly fine for a lot of things. It does have some limitations I don't fully understand, especially around concurrency and performance, and that's okay. Not everything has to be as fast as it can possibly be, and Ruby can also be made performant enough for a lot of use cases.
