Discussion on: Replacing Vuex with XState

I guess both approaches are valid.

In the app I mention in the post I just assign the error to a context property. The component then accesses it via a computed property and an error message appears when there is a value.

You could also conditionally show the error message depending on the machine's state (success, error, etc.), which is what I did initially. In my case though, the error state was identical to the idle state, just with an error message shown. I didn't see a reason to have an error state then.

I'm still unsure if the approach I took is valid in the world of statecharts but it works!
