Adopt ? We feel strongly that the industry should be adopting these items. We use them when appropriate on our projects.

React Query is often described as the missing data-fetching library for React. Fetching, caching, synchronizing and updating server state is a common requirement in many React applications, and although the requirements are well understood, getting the implementation right is notoriously difficult. React Query provides a straightforward solution using hooks. It works hand-in-hand with existing async data-fetching libraries like axios, Fetch and GraphQL since they are built on promises. As an application developer, you simply pass a function that resolves your data and leave everything else to the framework. We like that it works out of the box but still offers a lot of configuration when needed. The developer tools, unfortunately not yet available for React Native, also help developers new to the framework understand how it works. For React Native, you can use a third-party developer tools plugin utilizing Flipper. In our experience, version 3 of React Query brought the stability needed to be used in production with our clients.

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
