The goal of Redux is to borrow the important ideas from Flux, leaving the tedious bits behind. Despite not implementing Flux components as specified in the official documentation, Redux is the go-to solution for React architectures now. Redux is proof that simplicity always wins over advanced features.

The core ideas

Before implementing some Redux code, let's take a moment to look at the core ideas of Redux:

  • No dispatcher: This is just like Alt.js, which also purges the dispatcher concept from it's API. The fact that these Flux libraries don't expose a dispatcher component serves to illustrate ...
