What’s the best way to make an http API call from a react ionic app? I looked into axios but was having trouble getting it to work. Is there an example anywhere?
Axios seems fine to me.
Most of the react documentation uses
See here: https://reactjs.org/docs/faq-ajax.html
Depending upon your setup you might find it easier to work with a stack like
amplify as they have decent documentation and are ready to roll with specific SDKs. Just a thought!
Thanks. And do you suggest I create an ionic service for the API call?
Yeah I would do something like that I guess.
This is something I found just off the top… https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46750263/react-js-how-to-do-service-layer-call
Seems like a reasonable approach…
Are you coming from the Angular world?
