Axios Delete Request Code Example

To perform a DELETE request in Axios you can call the "delete" method of the "axios" object. This method accepts the resource URL and if there's any configuration then it can be passed as the 2nd parameter.
    import axios from 'axios';

    const response = await axios

Do note that the resource will not be really updated on the server but it will be faked as if.
