Axios & Saga for API

Mock API calls and setup Saga middle-tier

Mock Calls

DashboardKit uses fack/mock data to render some pages and actions. Mocking has been achieved with the help of Axios. It helps users to do minimal changes to load live data. Users just need to change the mock API URL to the Live service URL.

Setup Axios

Axios has been added request interceptor in the file ..src\utils\axios.js so that every request intercepts through this.
src\utils\axios.ts
/**
* Axios setup to use mock service
*/
import axios from 'axios';
const axiosServices = axios.create();
// interceptor for http
axiosServices.interceptors.response.use(
(response) => response,
(error) => Promise.reject((error.response && error.response.data) || 'Wrong Services')
);
export default axiosServices;

Setup axios-mock-adapter

src\utils\mockAdapter.ts
/**
* Adaptor for Axios
*/
import AxiosMockAdapter from 'axios-mock-adapter';
import axios from './axios';
// import axios from 'axios';
const services = new AxiosMockAdapter(axios, { delayResponse: 0 });
export default services;

How does data get loaded into components?

To understand this, we are going to take an example of one app panel and try to understand it. Let's say I want to load data for the leave page of SIS panel. There are following things that need to be done.
  1. 1.
    Create reducer action
  2. 2.
    Create reducer to update store
  3. 3.
    Setup saga and worker to listen to every request
  4. 4.
    Create Axios servive to be called from Saga worker
  5. 5.
    Finally, Dispatch action from component to get data
  • Create reducer action
src\store\actions.ts
...
// SIS ACTIONS START
export const FETCH_LEAVE_LIST = 'FETCH_LEAVE_LIST';
export const fetchLeaveList = (): ReducerAction => ({
type: FETCH_LEAVE_LIST
});
export const FETCH_LEAVE_LIST_SUCCESS = 'FETCH_LEAVE_LIST_SUCCESS';
export const FETCH_LEAVE_LIST_ERROR = 'FETCH_LEAVE_LIST_ERROR';
...
  • Create reducer to update store after getting response back from saga
src\store\reducers\sis.ts
// project imports
import * as actionTypes from 'store/actions';
import { ReducerAction, ReducerInitialState, InitialState } from 'types/application';
const leaveList: Reducer<ReducerInitialState> = (state = InitialState, action: ReducerAction) => {
switch (action.type) {
case actionTypes.FETCH_LEAVE_LIST_SUCCESS: {
return { data: _.get(action, 'payload', []), error: {} };
}
case actionTypes.FETCH_LEAVE_LIST_ERROR: {
return { data: {}, error: _.get(action, 'error', {}) };
}
default:
return state;
}
};
  • The component dispatches a plain object action to the store. We'll create a Saga that watches for all FETCH_LEAVE_LIST actions and triggers an Axios API call to fetch the user data. Once a response received, we will dispatch another action using 'put' that will update the store
src\store\sagas\sis.ts
...
...
function* workerFetchLeaveList(action: ReducerAction) {
try {
const response: AxiosResponse<Array<Result>> = yield call(getLeaves); // Axios call
yield put({
type: FETCH_LEAVE_LIST_SUCCESS,
payload: response.data || []
});
} catch (error) {
yield put({
type: FETCH_LEAVE_LIST_ERROR,
error
});
}
}
...
...
function* watcherFetchLeaveList() {
yield takeEvery(FETCH_LEAVE_LIST, workerFetchLeaveList);
}
  • We did set up saga, now we will define Axios service so that it returns data.
src\services\sis.ts
import axios from 'utils/axios';
export const getLeaves = () => axios.get('/api/sis/leaves');
...
  • Axios call will happen and returns data.
src\_mockApis\sis.ts
// project imports
import services from 'utils/mockAdapter';
import { makeData } from 'data/sisData';
// ==============================|| MOCK SERVICES ||============================== //
// Sis API's
services.onGet('/api/sis/leaves').reply(200, makeData(100));
...
  • Now everything has been setup, you can dispatch action to get data from component.
src\views\panels\sis\Leave.tsx
...
useEffect(() => {
if (_.isEmpty(leaveList)) {
dispatch(fetchLeaveList());
}
}, [dispatch]);
...
