Routing

useRouter

Your codebase includes a convenient useRouter hook that enables you read the current path, get the query string as an object, and programmatically change routes. If you've exported with the default React option we give you a custom hook that wraps the lower-level React Router hooks and does some extra nice things for you (such as scroll to the top of the page on route transition). If you've exported your project with our Next.js framework option then we use use the useRouter hook from next/router directly.

Here's an example that illustrates how easy it is:

import { Link, useRouter } from './../util/router.js';

function MyComponent(){
  // Get the router object
  const router = useRouter();

  // Get value from query string (?postId=123) or route param (/:postId)
  console.log(router.query.postId);

  // Get current pathname
  console.log(router.pathname)

  // Navigate with the <Link> component or with router.push()
  return (
    <div>
      <Link to="/about">About</Link>
      <button onClick={(e) => router.push('/about')}>About</button>
    </div>
  );
}
