One problem you face while creating apps with React is managing states. Sometimes you require application-level state so that you can save and access the information you need from any component you want.

There are various libraries available to solve the problem, such as Redux and Flux. But React has its own method of making application level-state, and here’s where the React Context API comes in. It’s built into React, so you do not need to install any external libraries for state management in your app to get things done.

But Discord has changed a lot and people use Discord for general purposes and not just gaming!

One important factor of Discord is bots. The automated bots power the server (guilds) and make it even more interactive and easy to manage. Any Discord based community is difficult to exist without bots. Bots can play any role…

Twitter is a social networking platform where people can express their thoughts in short posts which people can read and share! Today, we are going to make a Twitter Clone using React JS in the frontend along with Firebase!

Today, we will be building a Spotify Clone using ReactJS and get all the required data from the official Spotify Web API. Spotify is a music application where you can listen to your favorite music. It has an inbuilt music player so that you can pause/play, repeat, and adjust the volume of music.

Are you guys pumped for this? We will be covering a lot of concepts of React as we will be using Spotify Authentication, React Context API (learn more), and much more.

So let’s get started with The Spotify Clone — The Ultimate Guide!
