Discussion on: How and When to Use Redux

Hi, I'm a Redux maintainer. I'd like to point to a few specific resources that provide additional info:

  • The Redux FAQ page has an entry on "When should I use Redux?'
  • We have a new official Redux Toolkit package, which includes utilities to simplify several common Redux use cases, including store setup, defining reducers, immutable update logic, and even creating entire "slices" of state at once.
  • Our new Style Guide page provides recommendations on patterns and best practices, including recommending use of Redux Toolkit as the default approach for writing Redux logic

And finally, I'm currently writing a new "Quick Start" tutorial for the Redux docs, which will serve as a top-down introduction to Redux, showing Redux Toolkit and the React-Redux hooks API as "the right way" to write Redux logic. You can see the WIP preview version of the tutorial here.
