How to use the NPM uuid package in React?

Estimated read time 1 min read

The uuid package is a popular NPM package that allows you to generate unique IDs for your React components or any other purpose. Here’s how you can use it in your React project:

  1. Install the package: Open a terminal window and navigate to your React project directory. Run the following command to install the uuid package using NPM:
npm install uuid
  1. Import the package: In the file where you want to use the uuid package, import it at the top of your file like this:
import React from 'react';
import { v4 as uuidv4 } from 'uuid';

function MyComponent() {
  const id = uuidv4();

  return (
    <div id={id}>
      {/* rest of your component code */}
    </div>
  );
}

In this example, the uuidv4() function generates a unique ID and assigns it to the id variable. This ID is then used as the value of the id attribute of the div element.

You can use the uuid package to generate unique IDs for any purpose in your React project. Just make sure to import it at the top of the file where you need it and use the uuidv4() function to generate a unique ID.
