  • redux

    A JS library for predictable global state management

  • When React applications start growing and becoming more complex, managing communication between components can become problematic. When using regular React, the way to communicate is to pass down values and callback functions as props to the child components. However, this can be tedious if there are a lot of intermediary components that the callback must pass through. To address these state communication and management-related issues as the React application grows, Frontend Developers turn to use React with the Redux library. Redux utilizes some architecture patterns that enforce changing states in a React application from a central location. It is really useful when you want to solve common programming problems, develop and manage your application more quickly.
