    Lore-Actions is available as an npm package.

    npm install lore-actions

    After npm install, you'll find all the .js files in the /src folder and their compiled versions in the /lib folder.


    lore-actions is an abstraction teir to reduce the boilerplate associated with making ajax calls in client side applications that use React and Redux. It works by defining a set of blueprints for standard REST calls for CRUD operations, and then leveraging those blueprints using a configuration file. Example configuration file:

    module.exports = {
      blueprint: 'create',
      model: Todo,
      optimistic: {
        actionType: ActionTypes.ADD_TODO,
        payloadState: PayloadStates.CREATING
      onSuccess: {
        actionType: ActionTypes.UPDATE_TODO,
        payloadState: PayloadStates.RESOLVED
      onError: {
        actionType: ActionTypes.REMOVE_TODO,
        payloadState: PayloadStates.ERROR_CREATING,
        beforeDispatch: function(response, args){
            message: "Todo could not be created",
            response: response

    Configuration options are as follows:

    blueprint [required]: can be one of create, destroy, fetch, or update

    model [required]: A Backbone Model or Collection, or any function/object that abides by the Backbone interface (has fetch() and save() methods that return a promise).

    optimistic [optional]: Action to emit before making an AJAX call to the server. Must be specified as a pair of strings called actionType and payloadState. These values will be picked up by the Redux reducers. actionType should be something like ADD_TODO or REMOVE_TODO (value is arbitrary but should be unique). payloadState should be something like FETCHING or ERROR_CREATING.

    onSuccess [optional]: Action to emit if the AJAX call to the server is successful (returns a 200 level status code). Arguments are same as optimistic option.

    onError [optional]: Action to emit if the AJAX call to the server fails (returns a non-200 level status code). Supports an optional beforeDispatch callback that allows you to handle the error case by notifying the user (such as through the console or through a toast or snack in the UI).
