Managing Component State with the useState Hook

From React Hooks in Action by John Larsen

If you’re building React apps, then you’re expecting the data your app uses to change over time. Whether it’s fully server-rendered, a mobile app or all in a browser, your application’s user interface should represent the current data or state at the time of rendering. Sometimes multiple components throughout the app will use the data, and sometimes a component doesn’t need to share its secrets and can manage its own state without the help of mammoth, application-wide state-store behemoths. In this article, we’ll keep it personal and concentrate on components taking care of themselves, without regard for other components around them.
