React Redux History: Managing Navigation History in React and Redux

🚧 Beta version 

⚛ Redux history made easy!

A simple, lightweight library for managing navigation history in React and Redux.

Used in production by Utilmond. Check it out!

✨ Features

📜 Saves all routing history in store and offers selectors for easy access

🌲 History is persisted even after reloading the page

⏭️ Skipping screens capability out of the box just by passing a flag when navigating

👀 Everything you need to know about your navigation state and history directly in your favorite developer tools

Redux DevTools with router history

🔗 Installation

npm install react-redux-history react-router redux history

📤 Setup

Step 1)

Create a history object:

// store.js
import { createBrowserHistory } from 'history'

export const history = createBrowserHistory() // export this as we will need it later

Step 2)

Pass the history object as an argument to configureRouterHistory. The returned reducer and middleware will be used to connect to the store.

// store.js
import { configureRouterHistory } from 'react-router-redux-history'

const { routerReducer, routerMiddleware } = configureRouterHistory(history)

Step 3)

Add the reducer and middleware to your store. If you are using Redux Toolkit it might look something like this:

// store.js
const store = configureStore({
  reducer: combineReducers({
    // ...other reducers
    router: routerReducer
  middleware: (getDefaultMiddleware) => getDefaultMiddleware()
    // ...other middleware

export default store

Step 4)

Lastly, wrap your react-router routing with ConnectedRouter and pass the history object as a prop. Remember to delete any usage of BrowserRouter or NativeRouter as leaving this in will cause problems synchronising the state. Place ConnectedRouter as a child of react-redux's Provider.

// index.js
import { Provider } from 'react-redux'
import { Route, Switch } from 'react-router'
import { ConnectedRouter } from 'react-redux-history'

import store, { history } from './store'

  <Provider store={store}>
    <ConnectedRouter history={history}> { /* place ConnectedRouter under Provider */ }
      <> { /* your usual react-router v4/v5 routing */ }
          <Route />
          <Route />

Note: the history object provided to configureRouterHistory and ConnectedRouter component must be the same history object!

⏭️ Skip back / forward

By setting a skipBack / skipForward flag on a specific route the user will be automatically skipped over certain routes.

  pathname: 'page_5',
  state: { skipBack: 4 }

In this example, every time the user will try to go back from page_5 he will be skipped back 4 pages, reaching page_1. The same behaviour will apply when going forward from page_1, the user will be skipped back to page_5.

Note: due to the restrictive nature of browser navigation back or forward actions cannot be stopped. That means that in the previous example the user will actually reach page_4 before being redirected to page_1. If there is conflicting logic (such as extra redirects) in page_4 component it will be fired before the middleware manages to completely skip all screens. In order to get past this issue we can use the isSkipping flag to, for instance, not render the component tree while skipping. You can find a selector for this in the selectors section.

🌲 Persistent history

History is persisted even after page refresh by using local storage to save the state on page hide.

🚦 Selectors for easy access

There are also a few useful selectors for easy access:

  • selectAction
  • selectActionAlias
  • selectIsSkipping
  • selectCurrentIndex
  • selectHistory
  • selectLocation
  • selectLocationState
  • selectPreviousLocation
  • selectNextLocation

Note: the difference between action and actionAlias is that action will display "POP" for both back and forward navigations. It represents the action emitted by the browser. actionAlias will be more descriptive by using the actual "BACK" and "FORWARD" labels.

Huge thanks going to Utilmond team and connected-react-router for making this possible! 🍻

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

Reduce Redux Boilerplate Code with Redux-Actions

Redux has become one of the most popular libraries in front-end development since it was introduced by Dan Abramov and Andrew Clark in 2015. They designed it as the successor for Flux, with the support of some developer tools and a few more concepts embedded in it.

Flux is a fancy name for observer pattern further modified to support React. Both Flux and Redux consist of similar concepts like Store, Actions (events in the application). In other words, Flux is a simple JavaScript object but with some middleware like redux-thunk. It can be a function or a promise for Redux. However, Redux is a single source of truth with concepts like immutability, which improve performance. It is one of the main reasons for Redux to dominate in State Management.

Flux vs Redux comparison source: enappd.com

Despite its advantages, some developers have found it rather challenging to deal with Redux due to the amount of boilerplate code introduced with it. And the complexity of the code seems to be another reason for the difficulty.

In this article, we will look at how to reduce the boilerplate code brought about by Actions and Reducers using Redux-Actions

#React Slick







Deploy link:- Versal

This website was originally inspired from Himalayausa.com Our Team made Tremendus efforts and build this website within 5 consicutive days. We used React.js library for the UI part and used REDUX store for maintaing the states of the components. We used Heroku server API for getting the Mock Data and used Versel to deploy.

Build a simple React Native Pokemon app with React-Navigation

As we start learning new technologies we want to start building something or work on a simple project to get a better understanding of the technology. So, let’s build this simple app.
For this app, we will be using PokeApi to get our pokemon data, and also we will be using Hooks. I am using pokemondb for pokemon sprites. It’s just a personal preference you can use whatever you want.

React Redux Deep Dive: State Management in React with Redux


In the world of React, efficient State Management is one of the most important things a developer has to perform in order to produce a solid website and Redux is one of the best ways of achieving this.

In this article we are going to see how you could get started with Redux and use it to easily manage state in your React apps.

What is Redux?

Redux is a predictable state container for JavaScript apps.

Redux is used for managing and updating state in an immutable way.

This means that when changes are done to the state, the existing state isn’t updated to a new value, instead a new reference of the existing data is created, changes are made and the old state is replaced with this.

Why Redux?

Redux helps to create a single source of truth. Redux allows you to maintain all your data in one place, making life easier. All your data storage and manipulation happens in one place.So enough of introductions… Its time to get our hands dirty.

What are we going to build?

We are going to build a simple app where we can manage two entities, Posts and Todos. You can take a look at the finished website here. We will be

  • Loading Posts and Todos from the JSON PlaceHolder API
  • Adding a Post or Todo
  • Deleting a Post or Todo
