    Mobx State Tree Persistent Store

    A factory to easily create Persistent Mobx State Tree Store Provider and consumer hook.


    yarn add mst-persistent-store

    Install the Peer Dependencies if you haven't already.

    For React

    yarn add mobx-state-tree localforage

    For React Native

    yarn add mobx-state-tree @react-native-async-storage/async-storage


    Usage is very simple.

    Create Provider and Hooks

    Below is an example on how to create the provider and consumer hook.

    // store-setup.ts
    import { types } from 'mobx-state-tree';
    import createPersistentStore from 'mst-persistent-store';
    const PersistentStore = types
      .model('RootStore', {
        name: types.string,
        age: types.number,
        premium: types.boolean,
        hydrated: types.boolean,
      .actions((self) => ({
        hydrate() {
          self.hydrated = true;
      .views((self) => ({
        get isAdult() {
          return self.age >= 18;
    export const [PersistentStoreProvider, usePersistentStore] = createPersistentStore(
        name: 'Test User',
        age: 19,
        premium: false,
        hydrated: false,
        hydrated: false,
        logging: false,
        devtool: false,

    Add Provider to The Root Component

    Wrap your app with the created Provider component.

    // app.tsx
    import { PersistentStoreProvider } from './store-setup';
    import Main from './main';
    export default function App() {
      return (
          <Main />

    Use the Store from Child Components

    Consume store values using the hook.

    // main.tsx
    import { observer } from 'mobx-react-lite';
    import { useEffect } from 'react';
    import { usePersistentStore } from './store-setup';
    const Main = observer(() => {
      const { name, age, isAdult, hydrated, hydrate } = usePersistentStore();
      useEffect(() => {
      }, []);
      if (!hydrated) {
        return <p>Loading...</p>;
      return (
            {name} is {age} years old and {isAdult ? 'is' : 'is not'} an adult.
    export default Main;



    Type Definition

    interface PersistentStoreOptions {
      storageKey: string;
      writeDelay: number;
      logging: boolean;
      devtool: boolean;
    const createPersistentStore: <T extends IAnyModelType>(
      store: T,
      init: SnapshotIn<T>,
      blacklist?: PartialDeep<SnapshotIn<T>> | undefined,
      options?: Partial<PersistentStoreOptions> | undefined
    ) => readonly [React.FC<{}>, () => Instance<T>];


    param type required description
    store T extends IAnyModelType yes the mst model to instantiate
    init SnapshotIn<T> yes the init data of the store
    blacklist PartialDeep<SnapshotIn<T>> no the part of the store that should not be persisted
    options Partial<PersistentStoreOptions> no Various options to change store behavior


    All Properties are optional.

    property type default description
    storageKey string persistentStore the key to use as the localforage key. Must be
    changed when using multiple stores in the same
    app to avoid overriding data.
    writeDelay number 1500 On Repeated Store Update, it's advisable to wait
    a certain time before updating the persistent
    storage with new snapshot. This value controls the
    debounce delay.
    logging boolean true is dev
    false in prod
    Whether to enable logging.
    devtool boolean true in dev
    false in prod
    Whether to integrate with mobx-devtool
