    One of the hardest and the most important things when working with multistep forms is deciding on their structure. Ultimately the choice depends on the project requirements and what exactly the form is supposed to do. The first option is often to use one form component, inside which an active step is rendered. In this tutorial we will use a different approach - each step component will be a separate form, collecting the data from its fields and sending it to the central store on submit. This way we achieve nice separation of concerns, making it easier to adapt to future requirement changes. For the form logic, we'll use React Hook Form, which makes working with forms easier. For the central store, we'll use React context, although for more complicated cases a separate state management library (e.g. Redux) could be a better fit. Lastly, each form step will have its own route, for which we'll use React Router.
