Topic: Does one always need a Link via react router dom
Nates premium asked 3 years ago
So I noticed with many components eg a MDBBTn you have href attribute but when I use this field it always reloads the whole page i.e. not SPA effect.
I always have to wrap it inside a .. am I doing something wrong? Is there a way for it to behave like a SPA without using the Link?
If not, are there any best practices or advice when using it with MDB?
I usually put in my App.js, Router, route and switch and use CRA with Mdbootstrap.
If you want to keep SPA in your project you can not use
href attributes because it will always reload the whole page (not only re-render changeable elements).
react-router-dom was created especially for using it in applications like SPA.
So if you want to achieve a link effect without reloading page you should use
If you check our documentation you can see that some components use
MDBNavLink component by default. If you use
MDBNavLink in you project you don't need to use
Link to wrap
MDBNavLink, because this component has imported NavLink from
<Link to="/1"> <MDBBtn> <MDBIcon icon="fas fa-play-circle" fixed /> Start </MDBBtn> </Link>
