We’ll discuss the reasons behind the rise of Redux, and what has changed in the last couple of years - both in React and in Redux. Finally, we’ll look into what might be coming in the future.
Should you still worry about learning Redux?
React revolutionized front end development as most people knew it when it was first released. This new approach to writing code triggered incredible innovation in how to handle state changes and UI updates.
This revolution had its downsides, too. One of them was a culture of over-engineering solutions to challenges that could be solved in simpler ways. A typical example of this is how state has been managed in React applications.
Redux has become a hallmark of many React applications created in the last couple of years. The allure of having a single state object, available everywhere in your application sure sounds nice. But has its time passed? Has React evolved to a point where these kinds of state management tools add more complexity than they solve?
This article aims to give you a deeper understanding of which situations warrants state management tools like Redux. We’ll discuss the reasons behind the rise of Redux, and what has changed in the last couple of years - both in React and in Redux. Finally, we’ll look into what might be coming in the future.
Article covers: How native is react native?, React Native vs (Ionic, Cordova), Similarities and difference between React Native and Native App Development.
React Native Redux Example Tutorial From Scratch. We connect the React Native app to Redux store to save and retrieve the application data.
Redux is a light weighted State Management Tool that helps the components in our React App to communicate with each other. The simple concept behind this is that every state of the component is kept in a store that will be global. So that every component can access any state from that store.
How to set up a basic version of Redux in your React or React Native application. To make things clearer, I based my setup on my event application, where users create events that other users attend. We generated the action creators, reducers, and Redux store, and wrapped the application in a provider.
Redux is a powerful state management tool that can be very useful as your React or React Native application grows and requires you to keep track of more state.
