🚀 Incognito Url Maker Frontend
The frontend app is responsible for allowing users to shorten and customize long URLs using the application’s API. Users can input a long URL, provide a customized alias (masked), and create a shortened URL with the customized alias. The app also provides the ability to copy the shortened URL to the clipboard and clear the form.
Client: React, Typescript, axios, react-loader-spinner.
createMaskedUrl(): This function is responsible for validating the input data (origin URL and masked alias), making an API request to create the shortened URL, and updating the state with the customized URL.
clear(): This function clears all input fields and resets the state to their initial values.
The Main component renders different sections based on the application’s state: Loading Indicator: When the loading state is true, a loading spinner is displayed.
Form Section: If customizedUrl is empty, the form section is rendered. It allows users to input the long URL and the desired masked alias and submit the form to create a customized URL.
Error Handling: If there is an error (non-empty error state), it will be displayed below the form section.
Customized URL Section: If customizedUrl is not empty, the section displaying the customized URL is rendered. It also provides buttons to copy the URL to the clipboard and clear the form.
