Thoughts on Redux

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been learning about the Flux pattern, mostly by playing around with Redux. It describes itself as a “predictable state container” and here’s my short review of it: it’s really cool.

My impression is that nearly all Flux implementations are tightly coupled to React. With Redux it feels like I can use it with pretty much any JavaScript framework or library. This is a big win for me.1

The creator of Redux, Dan Abramov, have released a free video course called “Getting Started with Redux” which is the perfect starting point for understanding how it works and its benefits. I highly recommend it, even if you’re already familiar with Redux.

  1. I like React but I love modularity.
