  • These Interfaces can be combined with others defined in different modules to define an ActionTypes type which describes all possible Actions in the application.Redux — Action typesAction CreatorsAction Creators are functions that return an Action, but they can also dispatch other Actions.
  • In the example below, the other Actions dispatched signal the state of the invocation i.e whether something is in progress, succeeded or failed.Redux — Action creatorsReducersReducers process Actions created in an application and in turn change the state in the Store, according to the type and payload.For more information about the Reducers,…

Sometimes I did find the rare example on StackOverflow or blog posts to help, but the majority of times I was on my own.Given my experience in working with React/Redux in TypeScript, I thought I would share examples of the major parts of these libraries all in one place to help the next person who runs into any of issues I had.I created a sample app which pulls all this code together over on GitHub and with that I’ll shut up and present the code…ReactClass componentThese are React components defined using an ES6 class, typically they are used when you want a component to have state or use life cycle functions such as componentDidMount; I usually use them to define pages.For more information about Class components in React, see the documentation.React — Class componentFunctional componentThese are the simpler React components defined using a function, they just have access to the properties passed in. I use them to create presentational components i.e. those that define a UI element such as a navigation bar.For more…
