Loadable is a library that simplifies loading asynchronous data in your React components. By managing the complexities of data loading, error, and ready states in a unified, abstract way, it minimizes the boilerplate and enhances the readability of your code.
With Loadable, you can manage loading states more efficiently, eliminating the need to manually do so. Here's a simple comparison:
In the Loadable example, you no longer need to maintain a separate isLoading state. The useLoadable hook handles this for you. The properties variable will either contain the symbol loading when the data is still loading, or the loaded data once it's ready. The hasLoaded function checks if the data is ready.
React is a powerful library for building user interfaces but lacks built-in support for data fetching. This leads to manual management of loading states, error states, and ready states in your components, causing your code to become complex and hard to maintain.
Loadable abstracts these common patterns for data fetching in React, making your components more readable and maintainable, while reducing boilerplate code associated with data fetching.
