I am sharing here a “GoToTop” React JS component that I created today. This component will render a button (shaped as an arrow) when the user scrolls down, past a certain point. When clicked, this button will execute a handleGoToTop() function that will smoothly scroll the screen back to the top.
This is a styled component, making it very portable. It also uses React hooks and TypeScript.
Among the several strategies aimed at increasing the productivity of a development team, the proper organization of the code related to the software being conceived undoubtedly occupies a preponderant place. Over the years, several methods and tools have been created for this purpose. It is important to know them, especially since they can very concretely result in a substantial saving of time, at least in terms of maintenance activities and bug fixing.
In this context, we’ll take a look at how to deploy styled components in a React JS project with TypeScript using the styled-components library. This technique allows components to contain their own styles. This “encapsulation” of styles also involves CSS in JS, using tagged template literals.
