How to create react routing

For react routing you need to a project if you don’t have any project then you can create a new project from my first blog. 

What is react router?
When you have created a project in the react then it’s required routes because you have a lot of components and you want to jump another page. So react routing have a package for the routing and need to run it. “npm install react-router-dom”.

After running this the command needs to pages where you will navigate as below given code :
For the home page:
import React from 'react';
const Home = () => {
            <p>Home content will come here when content will add new</p>
export default Home;

 For the page not found:
import React from 'react';
const Pagenotfound = () => {
            <p>Error page not found 404</p>
export default Pagenotfound;

For the sitemap page:
import React from 'react';
const Sitemap = () => {
            <p>Sitemap content will come here when content will add new</p>
export default Sitemap;

For the About page:
import React from 'react';
const About = () => {
            <p>About content will come here when content will add new</p>
export default About;

For the custom css need to add in the App.css:
.containerMain{ max-width: 1000px; margin: 0 auto;}
.mainNav ul { list-style: none; margin: 0; padding: 0;}
.mainNav li { display: inline-block; margin: 2px;}
.mainNav li a{ background: #eee; border-radius: 5px; padding: 5px; display: block; text-decoration: none;color: #000}
.mainNav li a:hover{ background: #ddd;}
 form div{ margin-bottom: 10px;}
form label{     width: 110px;
  display: inline-block;}
 .footerNav{background: #eee; padding: 10px; text-align: center; margin-top: 30px;}
.footerNav ul { list-style: none; margin: 0; padding: 0;}
.footerNav li { display: inline-block; margin: 2px;}
.footerNav li a{ padding: 5px; text-decoration: none;color: #333}
.footerNav li a:hover{ color: #61dafb}

 Also, you can create a lot of pages as you wish: Now you can see my folder structure. You can create a folder structure as you wish.

Now required to create approuter.js it would be in the root path as in the screenshot.

Approuter.js code:
import React from 'react';

import {Switch, Route, Redirect} from 'react-router-dom';

import Home from './containers/home/home';
import About from './containers/about/about';
import Student from './containers/students/students';
import Registration from './containers/registration/registration';
import Pagenotfound from './containers/pagenotfound/pagenotfound';
import Sitemap from './containers/sitemap/sitemap';

const Approuter = () => {
            <Route path='/' exact component={Home} />
            <Route path='/home' component={Home} />
            <Route path='/student' component={Student} />
            <Route path='/registration' component={Registration} />
            <Route path='/sitemap' component={Sitemap} />
            <Route path='/pagenotfound' component={Pagenotfound} />
            <Route path='/about' component={About} />

            <Redirect from='/*' to='/pagenotfound' />

export default Approuter;

Now in latest version 6+ react router dom change some element as Switch replaced with Routes. And also removed Redirect element. And component replaced with element as below example:


                <Route path='/' exact element={<Home/>} />

                <Route path='/home' element={<Home/>} />

                <Route path='/aboutus' element={<Aboutus/>} />

                <Route path='/pagenotfound' element={<Pagenotfound/>} />

                <Route path='/*' element={<Pagenotfound/>} />


this is components structure as below screenshot:

header.js code:
import React,{Component} from 'react';
import NavmanLinks from './navlist';

export default class Header extends Component{

    state = {
        navlist: [
            {name:'Home', href:'/home'},
            {name:'About', href:'/about'},
            {name:'Student', href:'/student'},
            {name:'Registration', href:'/registration'}

    rendernavlist = () =>{
        return => <NavmanLinks linkName={} linksHref={item.href} />);

            <div className="mainNav">


Also you can create header.js file with the stateless component as below code:

import React from 'react'
import Navlist from '../header/navlist'

export default () => {
    const routes = {
        navlist: [
            {name:'About Us'href:'/aboutus'},
            {name:'Page Not found'href:'/pagenotfound'}

   const rendernavlist = () => {
        return => <Navlist linkName={} linkHref={item.href} /> )

    return (


navlist.js code:
import React from 'react';
import {Link} from 'react-router-dom';
const NavmanLinks = (props) => {
            <Link to={props.linksHref}>
export default NavmanLinks;

App.js code:
import React from 'react';
import './App.css';

import Approuter from './approuter';
import Header from './components/header/header';
import Footer from './containers/footer/footer'

function App() {
  return (
    <div className="containerMain">
      <Header />
      <Approuter />
      <Footer />

export default App;

in the App.js need to import approuter.js

index.js code:
import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import './index.css';
import App from './App';
import * as serviceWorker from './serviceWorker';
import {BrowserRouter} from 'react-router-dom';

ReactDOM.render(<BrowserRouter><App /></BrowserRouter>, document.getElementById('root'));

// If you want your app to work offline and load faster, you can change
// unregister() to register() below. Note this comes with some pitfalls.
// Learn more about service workers:

Browser router need to import then wrap to <App />

Finally, you will use npm start command and you will get look like screenshot.
