  • The Code: React | React dare say at the time of this writing Redux is the most popular state management tool, and therefore the most attacked.
  • If youre unfamiliar with Redux, its a functional approach to state management that provides time-travel and clean state management in a form like a reducer function.
  • Im not sure how well it scales or handles middleware etc. but if youre a beginner to state management MobX and Unstated are the simplest tools to get up and running!
  • With that being said, its important to note MobX-State-Tree sports all the great features of Redux + reselect + Side-effect management and more all in one opinionated bundle with less code.
  • Why is it you can add X to something to make itcool? GantXReduxX reads pretty well as in some ways it reminds me a bit of the charisma from Unstated, as were using react-styled verbiage to set and mutate state.

  • Filter takes an array of values, performs a function or comparison on each value, and then returns a new array of just the values that pass it’s test (what we call ‘truthy’ values).
  • Here’s an example that takes an array of numbers and returns just the ones that are larger than 5: – – Here’s the filter part with an arrow function: – – Sometimes you have an array of values and just want to return one new thing from them.
  • Suppose you have an array of names, and you want to count the number of times the name ‘Bob’ shows up: – – As you can see, the arrow function didn’t save us as much typing this time, because we had to provide two parameters to the function and then…
  • Sometimes you’ll have an array of values that you want to do something with, but don’t need to keep track of what the return is from each function call.
