In today's fast-moving world, every search done over the internet is expected to return results not only accurately, but with little to no lag. There are many features associated with React Router which enable fast and reliable connection between the page element and the client. One such feature is deep linking.
In the context of the World Wide Web, the process of deep linking applies the use of hyperlinks that basically link to a particular, commonly indexed or searchable portion of web content accessible on a website. For instance, you can access a sub-domain of a website by directly traversing to its URL, such as http://example.com/path/page. Or, instead of surfing directly to the sub-domain, you can also start with the home page of the website, http://example.com, and later find the specific location on the webpage to access the /path/page. Deep linking connects users directly to content so they don't have to navigate to find it.
Deep linking, when done correctly, helps get quick results with a single click. Our objective in this guide is to learn to use React Router deep linking. We will discuss standard issues faced during the process and the most prudent solutions to ensure that things work seamlessly each and every time.
So with that, let us proceed!
In this guide, you have successfully learned the simple yet basic technique of deep linking through React Router. I hope you do not face problems with this the next time you're working on a SPA.
In particular, we learned how creating a path from the home page to the specific element in an internal page can make information accessibility much easier. We observed a common deep linking issue in a single page application and how it can be resolved with the creation of basic HTML file for the GitHub pages. The availability of comprehensive webpack plugins accessible on the official GitHub site can also fix the problem in the professional context.
