Hi @Deepanshu Bajaj. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- The useApiUrl hook in Refine is a React hook that returns the API URL. It uses the getApiUrl method to get the API URL from the dataProvider. This hook is particularly useful when you want to use the API URL in your custom hooks. Usage The useApiUrl hook will invoke the getApiUrl method from the current resource's dataProvider and return the result. If no resource can be inferred, it will return the default data provider's URL. Here is an example of how to use the useApiUrl hook:
import { useCustom, useApiUrl } from "@refinedev/core";

interface PostUniqueCheckResponse {
isAvailable: boolean;
}

const apiUrl = useApiUrl();

const { data, isLoading } = useCustom<PostUniqueCheckResponse>({
url: `${apiUrl}/posts-unique-check`,
method: "get",
config: {
query: {
title: "Foo bar",
},
},
});
import { useCustom, useApiUrl } from "@refinedev/core";

interface PostUniqueCheckResponse {
isAvailable: boolean;
}

const apiUrl = useApiUrl();

const { data, isLoading } = useCustom<PostUniqueCheckResponse>({
url: `${apiUrl}/posts-unique-check`,
method: "get",
config: {
query: {
title: "Foo bar",
},
},
});
The useApiUrl hook also accepts an optional dataProviderName parameter to explicitly get a specific dataProvider's URL regardless of the current resource's dataProvider. Example:
export const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Refine
dataProvider={{
default: dataProvider("<https://api.fake-rest.refine.dev/">),
other: dataProvider("<https://other-api.fake-rest.refine.dev/">),
}}
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
);
};

const apiUrl = useApiUrl("other");
// ^ <https://other-api.fake-rest.refine.dev/>
export const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Refine
dataProvider={{
default: dataProvider("<https://api.fake-rest.refine.dev/">),
other: dataProvider("<https://other-api.fake-rest.refine.dev/">),
}}
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
);
};

const apiUrl = useApiUrl("other");
// ^ <https://other-api.fake-rest.refine.dev/>
Return Value | Description | Type | | --- | --- | | API URL | string | For more detailed information, you can refer to the official documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/data/hooks/use-api-url/). If you encounter issues with useApiUrl returning undefined, ensure that your dataProvider is correctly set up and that the environment variables are properly configured, especially if you are using tools like vite. For more troubleshooting, you can refer to the Discord support thread (https://discord.com/channels/837692625737613362/1204246074953310268). For more examples and use cases, you can also check out the blog post on building a React Admin Dashboard (https://refine.dev/blog/building-react-admin-dashboard#building-the-daily-revenue-component). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- You can create and use the useApiUrl hook within your Refine application to dynamically access the API URL configured in your dataProvider. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to set it up and use it. Step-by-Step Guide 1. Set Up Your Data Provider: First, ensure that your dataProvider is correctly set up in your App.tsx file. Here is an example:
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

const API_URL = "<https://api.fake-rest.refine.dev";>

export default function App() {
return (
<Refine dataProvider={dataProvider(API_URL)}>
{/* Your components go here */}
</Refine>
);
}

import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

const API_URL = "<https://api.fake-rest.refine.dev";>

export default function App() {
return (
<Refine dataProvider={dataProvider(API_URL)}>
{/* Your components go here */}
</Refine>
);
}

2. Use the useApiUrl Hook: You can use the useApiUrl hook in any of your components to get the API URL. Here is an example of how to use it:
import { useCustom, useApiUrl } from "@refinedev/core";

interface PostUniqueCheckResponse {
isAvailable: boolean;
}

const MyComponent: React.FC = () => {
const apiUrl = useApiUrl();

const { data, isLoading } = useCustom<PostUniqueCheckResponse>({
url: `${apiUrl}/posts-unique-check`,
method: "get",
config: {
query: {
title: "Foo bar",
},
},
});

if (isLoading) {
return <div>Loading...</div>;
}

return (
<div>
{data?.isAvailable ? "Title is available" : "Title is not available"}
</div>
);
};

export default MyComponent;

import { useCustom, useApiUrl } from "@refinedev/core";

interface PostUniqueCheckResponse {
isAvailable: boolean;
}

const MyComponent: React.FC = () => {
const apiUrl = useApiUrl();

const { data, isLoading } = useCustom<PostUniqueCheckResponse>({
url: `${apiUrl}/posts-unique-check`,
method: "get",
config: {
query: {
title: "Foo bar",
},
},
});

if (isLoading) {
return <div>Loading...</div>;
}

return (
<div>
{data?.isAvailable ? "Title is available" : "Title is not available"}
</div>
);
};

export default MyComponent;

3. Optional: Use Multiple Data Providers: If you have multiple data providers, you can specify which one to use by passing the dataProviderName parameter to the useApiUrl hook:
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

export const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Refine
dataProvider={{
default: dataProvider("<https://api.fake-rest.refine.dev/">),
other: dataProvider("<https://other-api.fake-rest.refine.dev/">),
}}
>
{/* Your components go here */}
</Refine>
);
};

const apiUrl = useApiUrl("other");
// ^ <https://other-api.fake-rest.refine.dev/>

import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

export const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Refine
dataProvider={{
default: dataProvider("<https://api.fake-rest.refine.dev/">),
other: dataProvider("<https://other-api.fake-rest.refine.dev/">),
}}
>
{/* Your components go here */}
</Refine>
);
};

const apiUrl = useApiUrl("other");
// ^ <https://other-api.fake-rest.refine.dev/>
