WebSockets + Reflux + React
Using WebSockets, React and Reflux together can be a beautiful thing, but the intial setup can be a bit of a pain. The below examples attempt to offer one (arguably enjoyable) way to use these tools together.
This trifect works well if you think of things like so:
- Reflux Store: The store fetches, updates and persists data. A store can be a list of items or a single item. Most of the times you reach for
this.statein react should instead live within stores. Stores can listen to other stores as well as to events being fired.
- Reflux Actions: Actions are triggered by components when the component wants to change the state of the store. A store listens to actions and can listen to more than one set of actions.
