Hey guys, I’m trying to do simple movie library based on react, axios and Json server package,
So far I handled GET and POST requests and it works pretty fine but I have problem to make it work with DELETE and EDIT, I want to make DELETE request when I click on delete button but i kinda don’t have idea how to set to take ID from this particular list and put it to the URL request

import React from 'react';
import ReactDom from 'react-dom';
import axios from 'axios';

class List extends React.Component{
    constructor(props){
        super(props)
        this.state = {
            movies: [],
        }
    }

    componentDidMount() {
        const url = `http://localhost:3000/movies`;
        console.log(url);
        axios.get(url)
            .then(res => {
                console.log(res.data);
                const movies = res.data;
                this.setState({
                    movies: movies
                })
            })
            .catch((err) => {
                console.log(err);
            })
    }

removeMovie =(e) => {
        console.log("it works with remove!");
        if (typeof this.props.removeClick === "function") {
            this.props.removeClick(e)
        } else {
            console.log("Doesn't work with remove");
        }
    }


    render(){
        let movies = this.state.movies.map(e =>
            <ul onClick={this.editMovie}>
                <li data-id={e.id}>
                    {e.name}
                </li>
                <li data-id={e.id}>
                    {e.type}
                </li>
                <li data-id={e.id}>
                    {e.description}
                </li>
                <button  onClick={this.removeMovie}>Delete</button>
            </ul>)

        return(
            <div>
                {movies}
            </div>
        )
    }
}

export default List;

Hello Mateusz,

You should be able to identify the method client made the request, here it looks like DELETE, grab the method if you work as generic service, or register a new service(gateway) for delete to fetch the delete request…

Another easy option(I suggest) is you let all operations by POST, simply have different services(like /movie/remove, movie/create ,…) for each operation.
Or specify the operation using an argument like op=create, op=remove ,…
