Building a large scale React app may include some re-renders headaches. The growth of your app may cause you to spend a lot of time investigating why “heavy” components re-rendered much more then you expected.

In this article, I’ll demonstrate a common use-case and will explain how placing useState / useSelector in the right component can optimize performance.

How does React work?

when the state of a component changes, it triggers the component’s re-render.

For example (codeSandbox):

const App = () => {
const [counter, setCounter] = useState(0);
return (
<button onClick={() => setCounter(counter + 1)}>Counter</button>
<Component1 />…

In this article, I’ll share my way of thinking step by step until we will reach to the final solution. This solution will keep your components as clean and semantic as possible.

NOTE: This article will not discuss routes with permissions.

The requirements were quite straight forward:
