- There is 1 global state object that manages the state for your entire application. In this example, it will behave identically to our initial component’s state. It is the single source of truth.
- The only way to modify the state is through emitting an action, which is an object that describes what should change. Action Creators are the functions that are
dispatched to emit a change – all they do is
return an action.
- When an action is
dispatched, a Reducer is the function that actually changes the state appropriate to that action – or returns the existing state if the action is not applicable to that reducer.
- Reducers are “pure functions”. They should not have any side-effects nor mutate the state — they must return a modified copy.
- Individual reducers are combined into a single
rootReducer to create the discrete properties of the state.
- The Store is the thing that brings it all together: it represents the state by using the
rootReducer, any middleware (Thunk in our case), and allows you to actually
- For using Redux in React, the
<Provider /> component wraps the entire application and passes the
storedown to all children.
