1. Create startup react app with React Hooks

First you have to create react application. Please refer below link to create startup app.

Create React Application

I would recommend you to check the previous article about the API call in React JS for more understanding. We have implemented the same things using class component.

Your startup structure should look like below.

2. Integrate HTML and make API call

Step 1: Add below bootstrap css link in index.html to use bootstrap design in application.

Step 2: Use state to manage API response and display data using hooks.

For that we will use “useState” to manage state in functional component.

Add below code in App function. Here we used two variables, one for data list and another one for API loading.

Step 3: Create function to make API call

Here we will create function to make API call and store result in state.

Step 4: Create HTML design to display API records in table structure.

We follow the same design as previous article API call in React JS. Just we have updated the syntax of the state variables.

After adding all the code in single file, your whole page should look like below.
