Async in Redux
If you're on your phone, please request the desktop site to star this gist
Redux is usually taught with synchronous actions - these are easier to understand but as web developers, we tend to deal with asynchronous actions a lot more often. In this talk, I'll compare different libraries to assist you with asynchronous Redux actions: redux-thunk, redux-saga, redux-promise-middleware, etc.
What you can expect to see
- Different approaches of handling asynchronous actions in Redux with middlewares such as redux-saga, redux-thunk, redux-promise, etc.
- What middleware to use when?
About the author
I work at Cleartrip, where I'm leading the development of a Progressive Web App to make travel simple. When I started out as a React developer I was completely confused with all the available options to handle async actions in Redux. Slowly I explored them all realising the pros and cons of each of them, and I think everyone should know about the available options so that they know what to choose when working with redux.
