What Is This?

This package provides Redux(-like) state management for Caldera Forms configurations and other things that need their state managed in a React app, such as Gutenberg.

Also, an example app and test coverage for all of that.

Why Is This?

  • Once source of single source of state
    • We need to state management in CF core, pro, and add-ons.
  • Isolated testing.
    • This package had 28 tests at initial commit.
    • Test basic functionality with mocks here.
    • Test that it actually works with CF REST API in CF.


Import Into A webpack Managed Project

import * as cfStateWebpack from '@caldera-labs/state'

This import exposes three keys: store,state, and util.

store - Pure functions for storing state

state - Interactions with Redux or wp.data

import * as cfFormsState from '@caldera-labs/state';
export const STORE = {
    reducer( state = DEFAULT_STATE, action ) {
        return cfFormsState.store.reducers.formsReducer(DEFAULT_STATE,action);
    actions: cfFormsState.store.actions,
    selectors: cfFormsState.store.selectors,

util - Utility functions

Find the form with a specific ID in an array of forms.


Check if a given form config object has an ID
