Navigating via react-navigation

react-router is the de-facto standard routing solution for react applications. The thing is that with redux and a single state tree, the URL is part of that state. connected-react-router takes care of synchronizing the location of our application with the application state.

(See the connected-react-router FAQ for more information)


To add a new route, simply import the Route component and use it standalone or inside the Switch component (all part of RR5 API):

<Route exact path="/" component={HomePage} />

Top level routes are located in App.js.

If you want your route component (or any component for that matter) to be loaded asynchronously, use container or component generator with 'Do you want to load resources asynchronously?' option activated.

To go to a new page use the push function by connected-react-router:

import { push } from 'connected-react-router';

You can do the same thing in a saga:

import { push } from 'connected-react-router'
import { put } from 'redux-saga/effects'
export function* mySaga() {
yield put(push('/home'))

Child Routes

For example, if you have a route called about at /about and want to make a child route called team at /about/our-team, follow the example in App.js to create a Switch within the parent component. Also remove the exact property from the about parent route.

// AboutPage/index.js
import { Switch, Route } from 'react-router-dom';
function AboutPage() {
return (
<Route exact path="/about/our-team" />

You can read more in react-router's documentation.
