Basic Syntax:

// Add a request interceptor
axios.interceptors.request.use(function (config) {
// Do something before request is sent
return config;
}, function (error) {
// Do something with request error
return Promise.reject(error);
});

// Add a response interceptor
axios.interceptors.response.use(function (response) {
// Do something with response data
return response;
}, function (error) {
// Do something with response error
return Promise.reject(error);
});

How can you use axios interceptors?

const DEBUG = process.env.NODE_ENV === "development";

axios.interceptors.request.use((config) => {
/** In dev, intercepts request and logs it into console for dev */
if (DEBUG) { console.info("✉️ ", config); }
return config;
}, (error) => {
if (DEBUG) { console.error("✉️ ", error); }
return Promise.reject(error);
});
axios.interceptors.request.use((config) => {
config.headers.genericKey = "someGenericValue";
return config;
}, (error) => {
return Promise.reject(error);
});
//Assume we pass an extra parameter "parse: true" 
axios.get("/city-list", { parse: true });
axios.interceptors.response.use((response) => {
if (response.config.parse) {
//perform the manipulation here and change the response object
}
return response;
}, (error) => {
return Promise.reject(error.message);
});
axios.interceptors.response.use((response) => {
if(response.status === 401) {
alert("You are not authorized");
}
return response;
}, (error) => {
if (error.response && error.response.data) {
return Promise.reject(error.response.data);
}
return Promise.reject(error.message);
});
