Use wouter to detect query param changes

Oct 17, 2021

Recently we had a requirement where we needed to synchronise UI state with url changes/updates. To be specific, we wanted to render section by passing it via query params

http://localhost:3000?section=categories // Renders categories componenthttp://localhost:3000?section=detail?name=jack // Renders detail component and name parameter has a value, 'jack'.

It is important to mention at this point that we were using wouter for routing for our preact SPA and redux for state management. Looking at out current tech preference, it was obvious we would consider connected-react-router and we did but not without taking one last look at wouterhooks based api.
