Discussion on: Explain Redux like I'm five

I certainly would not dismiss Redux. Sometimes the simple patterns are the most powerful, such as having one store. On the server side, the particular piece of architecture which is (almost) represented by Redux is considered one of the hardest to understand. So kudos to the author for making something hard seem trivial.

Not to say that Redux goes far enough. In comparison with a Process Manager (and with Elm), Redux is missing a baked-in representation of side effects. That would make it more or less complete.
