useUnmountSignal() — A React Hook to cancel promises when a component is unmounted

A React Hook that wraps around the almighty AbortController. It will automatically call abort() on the created AbortSignal instance when the component unmounts.

import useUnmountSignal from 'use-unmount-signal';

function Example() {
  const unmountSignal = useUnmountSignal();
  return (
    <button
      onClick={() =>
        fetch('https://ping.example.com', { signal: unmountSignal })
      }>
      Ping
    </button>
  );
}

Installation per NPM:

npm i use-unmount-signal
