Monitor route change and active element

Is there anything/code I can insert into my App.js so that whenever the route change, it console log the current route path and element? Anything from 'react' library? I don't know. Routes in my App.js: import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core"; import { BrowserRouter, Routes, Route, Outlet } from "react-router-dom"; <BrowserRouter> <Refine routerProvider={routerBindings} resources={[{ name: "users", list: "/users", }, { name: "canvases", list: "/canvases", },]} > <Routes> <Route element={ <Authenticated> <ThemedLayoutV2 Title={Title}> <CanAccess> <Outlet /> <LogRouteChanges /> </CanAccess> </ThemedLayoutV2> </Authenticated> } > <Route index element={<NavigateToResource />} /> <Route path="/users" element={<UserList />} /> <Route path="/canvases" element={<CanvasList />} /> </Route> </Routes> <Refine> </BrowserRouter>

Hi @lukevo.. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Based on the information provided in the extracts, there isn't a direct way to console log the current route path and element whenever the route changes using the 'react' library. However, refine uses a customized Router Provider to save routes and navigate between pages. This router provider includes methods such as useHistory, useLocation, and useParams which can be used to track route changes. Here's a simple example of how you might use useLocation from the 'react-router-dom' library to log the current path:
import { useLocation } from 'react-router-dom';

function LogRouteChanges() {
const location = useLocation();

React.useEffect(() => {
console.log(`Path: ${location.pathname}`);
}, [location]);

return null;
}
import { useLocation } from 'react-router-dom';

function LogRouteChanges() {
const location = useLocation();

React.useEffect(() => {
console.log(`Path: ${location.pathname}`);
}, [location]);

return null;
}
You can place the LogRouteChanges component anywhere in your component tree as long as it's inside a BrowserRouter (or Router) component. It will log the current path to the console whenever the route changes. Please note that this code is not directly from the provided extracts, but it's a common pattern in React applications that use 'react-router-dom'. For more information on routing in refine, you can check the official documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/tutorial/understanding-resources/index/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
