JavaScript React Authentication React Router and Authentication Implement User Sign Out

Ah! Wish I had known this for project 7. How could you do this without using more modern techniques?

This is a flashback moment for me as, during project 7, I needed to implement a state change in a component that felt like a brute force move and as this section suggests, React slapped my wrist and let me off with a warning.

My question is, using this example in the exercise, is there a way that you could refactor, so you didn't need to use hooks?

Otherwise, my thoughts are:

  • The warnings don't show in older versions of React so it's not a problem to be solved and there isn't a method.
  • The introduction of Hooks coincides with the warnings appearing, now there is actually a way to prevent it.
  • Perhaps, the way to refactor to prevent this issue is so verbose that people were just prepared to be careful not to introduce bugs.
