    Redux can be extended with a lot of other packages. For example with a side effect manager, you can separate side effects from your business logic, help with error handling and in the same process make testing of side effects a lot easier.

    Your app will likely have to deal with async calls like making remote API requests. redux-thunk and redux-saga were created to solve those problems. They may take some time to understand as they require understanding of functional programming and generators. Our advice is to deal with it only when you need it.

    Hey thanks for the thoughtful response.

    I agree with everything you mentioned here. I'd love to continue to chat with you about how to make testing sagas better.

    Redux-sagas[0] makes great use of generators. I found it a fantastic tool, if you're already in the redux ecosystem, and have an application that sprawls enough to benefit. It's great when you have to manage multiple process lifecycles. A single "saga" can represent the entire lifespan of a session in just a few lines of code, a socket or similar long-lived process, with clear code branches to shorter-lived handlers or other sagas for the details.

    The downsides are:

    - a quirky syntax that needs learning, and is of the "loose with semantics" style - like Rails-eque REST's play with HTTP methods

    - it's hard to test (despite what the documentation claims). It's highly declarative, and such code seems hard to test.


  • What is the best plan to catch data from multiple api calls and display some data
    2 projects | /r/reactjs | 16 Oct 2022
    If there are dependent API calls, you can probably look at redux-saga. It’s one of the best libraries out there to manage the data.

    redux-saga makes use of them in really nice way. That’s where I’ve used them the most.
  • Recap of the state management history in React

    Since it was a relatively low level tool, just like React, that gave a lot of freedom to the user to find different ways to make it work for them. In particular when it came to async operations Redux itself gave no official solution. The most popular options are redux-thunk, redux-observable, and redux-saga. There were probably a dozen more options out there.

  • Inflist, an experiment using PureScript and React
    8 projects | | 13 May 2022
    The most “unstable” part is probably the logic dealing with the storage. There is a persistence layer inside Inflist passed around as a dependency, and its only implementation is using the Local Storage as anticipated. This layer is executed directly through the React components using native hooks like useAff, and thus managed by the React lifecycle events. This can definitely be improved using a more solid approach from libraries like Redux-Saga.
