Lights, Camera, Action Types and Creators: Redux in Primetime

State management is quite an undertaking in a large scale application. I recently had the experience of refactoring a React app into a React-Redux app in order to unify the codebase and make the application more predictable. It was not a fun process, but the experience was well worth the time.

State management is quite an undertaking in a large scale application. I recently had the experience of refactoring a React app into a React-Redux app in order to unify the codebase and make the application more predictable. It was not a fun process, but the experience was well worth the time. It is understandable, particularly starting out, to avoid learning yet another JavaScript library, but Redux is such a helpful tool that it is well worth your investment.

Initially, I was put off by Redux. Why learn another tool when React was literally designed around the idea of state? The modular and reusable nature of React affords programmers with the ability to localize behavior within a component which is a tremendous benefit during prototyping and implementing small projects. However, larger projects may require shared state throughout the application. While sharing state app wide is achievable in React, it is nevertheless cumbersome and adds unnecessary complexity to an application.

As mentioned before, I recently had to refactor an application because I decided to make some profound changes to it and Redux was my way out! I began trying to move state higher in the component hierarchy and passing state and state-changing callbacks down (and around) as props. But it was a cumbersome and buggy process. It stands to reason that in a production/professional environment, any technical manager or client can make a request that fundamentally changes the nature of the UI affecting dramatically how components interact with each other. Even though, I had to add yet another dependency to my React app, Redux abstracted away the complexities of managing state within the UI allowing each component to read and write to state directly and simplifying the overall application by separating the concerns of state management out of the UI.
