Like Redux, Recoil is state management library in React. Let’s look at the differences and how to make the switch when you’re ready.
Managing complex state in React can sometimes be hard, which is why some of us use Redux or similar libraries like MobX to manage state in React.
Recoil is another state management library that is closely modeled towards React’s Hooks API. It allows you to define shared state as atoms, and computed state which it refers to as selectors. If you want to learn about the limitation the team at Facebook faced and how they tried to solve it with recoil, you can watch this video.
One important note: Although many companies including Facebook are using Recoil, it is technically in an experimental state, and its API and functionality may change.
In this post, I’ll show you how to switch from Redux to Recoil and along the way compare the differences. I’ll be working with the TodoMVC example from Redux’s GitHub repository. You can download the zip file using this link I made for you 😉. Here’s how the app works:

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.
