Learn Redux by coding a Mini-Redux – Jakob Lind

Do you think Redux is complicated? Learn Redux by coding your own mini-redux  #reactjs

  • The whole point with Redux is to have one single source of truth for your application state.
  • The state is stored as a plain Javascript object in one place: the Redux Store.
  • When Redux is used with React, it is the React components that get notified when state changes, and can re-render based on new content in the store.
  • We can copy/paste that example to test our own Redux implementation: – – Get the full code to run it on your machine by signing up to my email list below!
  • In the next blogpost, we will code the connect function which binds your Redux store to React components.

There are lots of resources for learning Redux. There is the official documentation, examples, tutorials, blog posts, boilerplates, Youtube videos, podcasts, etc… The list goes on. Even though we have so many great resources to learn from, new developers coming in still sometimes gets confused. It’s an overwhelming amount of content and it can be difficult to filter out the relevant stuff.

React.js: The Hard Parts

State Management without #Redux:  by #ReactJS

  • If a user interacts with your application or refreshes the page, then we’ll look up state at that moment and rebuild the page.
  • In dynamic apps, like ones built using React, state change has to be dealt with immediately.
  • Managing state can get complicated if each component has some state.
  • Interaction with the components, like a mouse click, trigger these functions to update state.
  • For example to implement retweets: – – When the state is updated, the props will change too and render the child components again.

How to Build a Todo App Using React, Redux, and Immutable.js — SitePoint

  • This helps us get a feel for what we’re going to need our components to render:
    const dummyTodos = [
    { id: 0, isDone: true, text: ‘make components’ },
    { id: 1, isDone: false, text: ‘design actions’ },
    { id: 2, isDone: false, text: ‘implement reducer’ },
    { id: 3, isDone: false, text: ‘connect components’ }
    ];

    For this application, we’re only going to need two React components, Todo / and TodoList /.

  • js

    import React from ‘react’;

    export function Todo(props) {
    const { todo } = props;
    if(todo.isDone) {
    return strike{todo.text}/strike;
    } else {
    return span{todo.text}/span;
    }
    }

    export function TodoList(props) {
    const { todos } = props;
    return (
    div className=’todo’
    input type=’text’ placeholder=’Add todo’ /
    ul className=’todo__list’
    {todos.map(t = (
    li key={t.id} className=’todo__item’
    Todo todo={t} /
    /li
    ))}
    /ul
    /div
    );
    }

    At this point, we can test these components by creating an index.html file in the project folder and populating it with the following markup.

  • /components’;

    const dummyTodos = [
    { id: 0, isDone: true, text: ‘make components’ },
    { id: 1, isDone: false, text: ‘design actions’ },
    { id: 2, isDone: false, text: ‘implement reducer’ },
    { id: 3, isDone: false, text: ‘connect components’ }
    ];

    render(
    TodoList todos={dummyTodos} /,
    the code with npm run build, then navigate your browser to the index.html file and make sure that it’s working.

  • Our dummy data is a great place to start from, and we can easily translate it into ImmutableJS collections:
    import { List, Map } from ‘immutable’;

    const dummyTodos = List([
    Map({ id: 0, isDone: true, text: ‘make components’ }),
    Map({ id: 1, isDone: false, text: ‘design actions’ }),
    Map({ id: 2, isDone: false, text: ‘implement reducer’ }),
    Map({ id: 3, isDone: false, text: ‘connect components’ })
    ]);

    ImmutableJS maps don’t work in the same way as JavaScript’s objects, so we’ll need to make some slight tweaks to our components.

  • The mapStateToProps function takes the store’s current state as an argument (in our case, a list of todos), then it expects the return value to be an object that describes a mapping from that state to props for our wrapped component:
    function mapStateToProps(state) {
    return { todos: state };
    }

    It might help to visualize this on an instance of the wrapped React component:
    TodoList todos={state} /

    We’ll also need to supply a mapDispatchToProps function, which is passed the store’s dispatch method, so that we can use it to dispatch the actions from our action creators:
    function mapDispatchToProps(dispatch) {
    return {
    addTodo: text = dispatch(addTodo(text)),
    toggleTodo: id
