If we don't use redux-thunk or redux-saga, what do we use?

Only a portion of people who use React uses Redux, and only a portion of that uses redux-thunk or redux-saga:

For the last year I've been using react context as my global state solution with some useReducer magic here and there, and I'm very happy with the results. I miss how easy was to use middlewares, but there's always a workaround.

I just started using Apollo lately, and if you use GraphQL, it also works pretty well!

you don't use Redux but just use a context? does that mean when data updates the whole App's components render() are called?

Nope, good thing about using Context, you can create more than one. Also, only the components "subscribed" to a context will rerender if the context changes. It's basically the same as REDUX.

You have a great example of how to do it here:

Seems like you are looking for a state management library w/o Redux.

I hear good things about Zustand, which you might want to try. (I will too)
