One of the traits of someone who follows or moving towards a good coding practice environment is making sure that you are not pushing the code which may have linting issues and/or failing unit tests. Adding a pre-commit hook forces to check the lint and run unit tests (or any other script) to be sure that everything is good before committing changes. npm i --save-dev pre-commit Next step is to update the package.
Let’s take a very basic use case of the useState() hook; updating the count variable on each click. The code look perfectly fine and will work as expected in almost every time. BUT the issue with this code is that setCount() doesn’t guarantee that the previous count that it’s going to use to either increment and decrement to get the next state will be the latest one. To make sure that we always use the latest previous state for calculating the new state, we need to pass a callback function in the setCount rather than directly doing computation inside it.
