What is Axios?
How Does Axios Work?
Axios works by making an asynchronous HTTP request to a server from within a React component. It allows developers to specify the type of request (GET, POST, PUT, etc.), the URL of the request, and any data that needs to be sent along with the request. Axios will then handle the rest of the request and return a promise that can be used to retrieve the response.

How to Use Axios in React
Using Axios in React is fairly straightforward. First, install the Axios library using npm:
npm install axios
Once Axios is installed, it can be imported into a React component. This can be done by using the import statement:
import axios from ‘axios’;
Once Axios is imported into the component, making a request is as easy as calling the axios.get() or axios.post() methods. These methods allow developers to specify the URL, any data that needs to be sent with the request, and a callback function that will be called when the response is received.
