React Query

Provides performant and powerful data synchronization for React.

React Query is often described as the missing data-fetching library for React, but in more technical terms, it makes fetching, caching, synchronizing and updating server state in your React applications a breeze.

Refer to official documentation for detailed usage. →

tip

All required configurations will be handled automatically by CLI as long as you choose plugins during the project creation phase.

React Query supports prefetching multiple queries on the server in Next.js and then dehydrating those queries to the queryClient.

To support caching queries on the server and set up hydration:

  • Create a new QueryClient instance
  • Wrap your app component with <QueryClientProvider> and pass it the client instance
  • Wrap your app component with <Hydrate> and pass it the dehydratedState prop from pageProps.

We recommend to check the official documentation for SSR implemantation. →

pages/_app.js
import React from 'react';
import { AppProps } from "next/app";
import { QueryClient, QueryClientProvider } from "react-query";
import { Hydrate } from "react-query/hydration";
function MyApp({ Component, pageProps }: AppProps): JSX.Element {
const queryClient = new QueryClient()
return (
<Hydrate state={pageProps.dehydratedState}>
<QueryClientProvider client={queryClient}>
<Component {...pageProps} />
</QueryClientProvider>
</Hydrate>
);
}
export default MyApp;
caution

If you didn't choose the plugin during project creation phase, you must update your _app.js file as above after installing required package to add it.

Example usage useQuery:#

components/reactQueryExample/index.tsx
import { useQuery } from "react-query";
const API_URL = "https://official-joke-api.appspot.com/jokes/programming/random";
export const ReactQueryExample = () => {
const { data } = useQuery("random-programming-joke", () =>
fetch(
API_URL
).then(res => res.json())
);
};

Adding react-query to your project later#

If you didn't choose the plugin during project creation phase, you can follow the instructions below to add it.

  • Install react-query package.
npm install react-query
