As our title describes, let's handle those modals through routes. When you are route /create-user, The create modal will open, and if you are on route /user/12/edit The edit modal will be opened. We will render those modals in the same user's page, But the prop will change, If you are on the edit page, The edit prop will pass true and the same goes for create user page.
