Making API calls

In this section, well go over the common case for asynchronous behavior in Flux architectures—making API calls over the network. Then, we'll discuss some the implications of asynchronous behavior in the context of user interactivity and the Flux tools available to deal with them.

APIs are the common case

Flux architecture is for the frontend of web applications. That said, there's going to be a lot of network communication between some components of our architecture and the backend API. This is the common case for asynchronous behavior, not just in Flux, but in the majority of JavaScript applications. Therefore, this is where the emphasis should be when designing action creators that directly communicate asynchronously with these ...
