    nion is a library that makes it easy to fetch, update, and manage API data in a Redux store as well as bind it to React components. Nion strives to make working with data as flexible, consistent, and predictable as possible. πŸ’–

    nion is heavily inspired by Apollo and GraphQL.

    In a Nutshell 🌰

    nion is used as a hook which is given a declaration of what data is needed by the component that calls it.

    import { useNion } from '@nion/nion'
    export const UserContainer = () => {
        const [currentUser, actions, request] = useNion({
            dataKey: 'currentUser',
            endpoint: 'https://patreon.com/api/current_user',
        const loadButton = <Button onClick={() => actions.get()}>Load</Button>
        return (
                {request.isLoading ? <LoadingSpinner /> : loadButton}
                {currentUser && <UserCard user={currentUser} />}

    We simply pass in a declaration object that tells nion what to fetch, and nion automatically handles fetching the data and returning it along with the corresponding request status.

    nion can also be used as a decorator function which declares what data will be managed by the decorated component and passes in props for managing that data. This is a deprecated usage; we don't recommend writing new code that uses the decorator form.

    nion requires redux-thunk in order to handle its async actions, so you should install that along with the nion package.

    npm install nion redux-thunk --save

    Also, nion is best used as a decorator function, so you might also want to make sure you've got babel configured to handle decorator transpilation:

    npm install babel-plugin-transform-decorators-legacy --save-dev


    Finally, nion has to be wired up to the redux store and optionally configured. Here's a very simple setup:

    import { applyMiddleware, createStore, combineReducers } from 'redux'
    import thunkMiddleware from 'redux-thunk'
    import { configureNion } from 'nion'
    export default function configureStore() {
        const configurationOptions = {}
        const { reducer: nionReducer } = configureNion(configurationOptions)
        const reducers = combineReducers({
            nion: nionReducer,
        let store = createStore(reducers, applyMiddleware(thunkMiddleware))
        return store
