Welcome to Redux:
Consider a calendar application. The app has a single section that lists all of the events. Another feature of the app is the ability to apply filters to the types of events that are displayed. The app’s third section sets the current time zone, and its fourth section creates new events. So, that’s a lot of information to keep track of!
Each of these “parts” would be a component in React, and data would have to be shared and updated between them. This shared data refer to as the application’s state by developers. Meanwhile, state management refers to the process of sharing and updating this information. State management in plain React can be a complicated process depending on the size and complexity of your state.
This is where Redux comes into play. Therefore, an introduction to Redux is very important for beginners. Redux is a state management library that adheres to the Flux architecture pattern. Shared information can store in a single object rather than components in the Flux and Redux patterns. The state is accessible throughout the application. Components are “notified” whenever the state changes, which is a predictable process.
Recoil, MobX, and Apollo Client are similar tools, but Redux is the tried-and-true tool for state management in React applications. Hence it’s more popular among developers, and it comes with plenty of documentation and online tutorials.
