Quick Start

info

The basic version of Hyper Fetch is not associated with any framework or library that is required for it to work.

1. Initialize the Client

The first step in implementing Hyper Fetch is to initialize the Client. It manages the basic configuration for connection to the server and all Hyper Fetch’s essential elements (i.e. instances of dispatchers, cache, and app managers). Start by determining the url of your server.

/src/server/client.ts
import { Client } from "@hyper-fetch/core";

export const client = new Client({ url: "http://localhost:3000" });

2. Create Requests

Then, having already prepared a connection to the server, we use the client method to create requests and assign types to them.

caution

We are using currying to achieve auto generated types for the endpoint string.
This solution will be removed once https://github.com/microsoft/TypeScript/issues/10571 get resolved.

/src/server/auth/auth.ts
import { client } from "../client.ts";

type ResponseType = { token: string; refreshToken: string };
type RequestType = { email: string; password: string };

const postLogin = client.createRequest<ResponseType, RequestType>()({ method: "POST", endpoint: "/auth/login" });

3. Use Requests

import { useSubmit, useFetch } from "@hyper-fetch/react";

import { postUser, getUsers } from "server/auth";

// Submitting (mutation)
const { submit, submitting } = useSubmit(postUser.setData({ name: "John" }));
submit();

// Fetching
const { data, error, loading } = useFetch(getUsers);
