Table of Contents


use-here-api exposes convenient hooks which lets you easily integrate HERE RESTful API services in your React.js projects.



Prior using any of the exposed hook you should provide credentials to authenticate your requests.

As noted in the Authentication and Authorization Developer Guide there are three supported authentication credential types:

  • API Key Credentials

    import { configureAuthentication } from '@cloudpower97/use-here-api';
      apiKey: '...'
  • OAuth 2.0 Token Credentials

    import { configureAuthentication } from '@cloudpower97/use-here-api';
      token: '...'
  • APP CODE Credentials

    import { configureAuthentication } from '@cloudpower97/use-here-api';
      app_id: '...',
      app_code: '...',

With the introduction of OAuth 2.0 Token and API Key authentication types there are also new domain names for HERE services.

The domain names used with APPCODE Credentials and the new domain names to be used with either OAuth 2.0 Token or API Key Credentials are different.

However, once configured properly, use-here-api will automatically use the correct domain name to be used for the respective HERE services.

Available Hooks

At the moment the following hooks are available:

  • Geocoding and Search

    • useForwardGeocoding - Submit an address to request the corresponding geocoordinates. Addresses may use structured input or free-form search strings with complete or partial address information. The more detailed the address you submit, the higher the potential match accuracy.
    • useReverseGeocoding - Submit a geocoordinate and an optional radius to request the corresponding address.
    • useAutocomplete - Get better search suggestions for your addresses with fewer keystrokes.
  • useWeather - Give insights into real-time weather forecasts, alerts, and astronomical info for any location.

  • Places

    • usePlacesAutosuggest - Provides you a lists of suggested search terms, instants results and refined search links related to a given (partial) search term and location context. This is used to help users save time, iterate on their searches, and get the results.
