react-use – Browser APIs as React Hooks

react-use is a collection of React Hooks that wrap many browser APIs and functions. Want to track the geolocation of a device? Use useGeolocation. Want to read the battery status? Use useBattery. Etc.

import {useBattery} from 'react-use';

const Demo = () => {
  const batteryState = useBattery();

  if (!batteryState.isSupported) {
    return (
      <div>
        <strong>Battery sensor</strong>: <span>not supported</span>
      </div>
    );
  }

  if (!batteryState.fetched) {
    return (
      <div>
        <strong>Battery sensor</strong>: <span>supported</span> <br />
        <strong>Battery state</strong>: <span>fetching</span>
      </div>
    );
  }

  return (
    <div>
      <strong>Battery sensor</strong>:&nbsp;&nbsp; <span>supported</span> <br />
      <strong>Battery state</strong>: <span>fetched</span> <br />
      <strong>Charge level</strong>:&nbsp;&nbsp; <span>{ (batteryState.level * 100).toFixed(0) }%</span> <br />
      <strong>Charging</strong>:&nbsp;&nbsp; <span>{ batteryState.charging ? 'yes' : 'no' }</span> <br />
      <strong>Charging time</strong>:&nbsp;&nbsp;
      <span>{ batteryState.chargingTime ? batteryState.chargingTime : 'finished' }</span> <br />
      <strong>Discharging time</strong>:&nbsp;&nbsp; <span>{ batteryState.dischargingTime }</span>
    </div>
  );
};
