    NavItem,
    NavbarToggler,
    Collapse,
    NavLink,
    Nav,
    NavbarBrand
} from 'reactstrap';
  
function App() {
  
    // Collpase isOpen State
    const [isOpen, setIsOpen] = React.useState(false);
  
    return (
        <div style={{
            display: 'block', width: 550, padding: 30
        }}>
            <h5>ReactJS Reactstrap Navbar Component</h5>
            <Navbar color="light" light expand="md">
                <NavbarBrand href="/">Brand</NavbarBrand>
                <NavbarToggler onClick={() => { setIsOpen(!isOpen) }} />
                <Collapse isOpen={isOpen} navbar>
                    <Nav className="mr-auto" navbar>
                        <NavItem>
                            <NavLink href="#">Home</NavLink>
                        </NavItem>

                </Collapse>
            </Navbar>
        </div >
    );
}
  
export default App;

Step to Run Application: Run the application using the following command from the root directory of the project:

function App() {
  
    // Collpase isOpen State
    const [isOpen, setIsOpen] = React.useState(false);
  
    return (
        <div style={{

        }}>
            <h5>ReactJS Reactstrap Navbar Component</h5>
            <Navbar color="light" light >
