    Angular bindings for Redux.

    This is a fork of ng-redux made for reducing size lib from original 39KB to 15KB

    For Angular 2 see ng2-redux.

    build status npm version

    ngRedux lets you easily connect your angular components with Redux.

    npm install --save ng-redux


    bower install --save ng-redux

    Add the following script tag to your html:

    <script src="bower_components/ng-redux/dist/ng-redux.js"></script>

    Quick Start


    You can either pass a function or an object to createStoreWith.

    With a function:

    import reducers from './reducers';
    import { combineReducers } from 'redux';
    import loggingMiddleware from './loggingMiddleware';
    import ngRedux from 'ng-redux';
    angular.module('app', [ngRedux])
    .config(($ngReduxProvider) => {
        let reducer = combineReducers(reducers);
        $ngReduxProvider.createStoreWith(reducer, ['promiseMiddleware', loggingMiddleware]);

    With an object:

    import reducers from './reducers';
    import { combineReducers } from 'redux';
    import loggingMiddleware from './loggingMiddleware';
    import ngRedux from 'ng-redux';
    import reducer3 from './reducer3';
    angular.module('app', [ngRedux])
    .config(($ngReduxProvider) => {
        reducer3 = function(state, action){}
            reducer1: "reducer1",
            reducer2: function(state, action){},
            reducer3: reducer3
         }, ['promiseMiddleware', loggingMiddleware]);

    In this example reducer1 will be resolved using angular's DI after the config phase.


    Using controllerAs syntax

    import * as CounterActions from '../actions/counter';
    class CounterController {
      constructor($ngRedux, $scope) {
        /* ngRedux will merge the requested state's slice and actions onto this,
        you don't need to redefine them in your controller */
        let unsubscribe = $ngRedux.connect(this.mapStateToThis, CounterActions)(this);
        $scope.$on('$destroy', unsubscribe);
      // Which part of the Redux global state does our component want to receive?
      mapStateToThis(state) {
        return {
          value: state.counter
        <p>Clicked: {{counter.value}} times </p>
        <button ng-click='counter.increment()'>+</button>
        <button ng-click='counter.decrement()'>-</button>
        <button ng-click='counter.incrementIfOdd()'>Increment if odd</button>
        <button ng-click='counter.incrementAsync()'>Increment Async</button>


    createStoreWith(reducer, [middlewares], [storeEnhancers], [initialState])

    Creates the Redux store, and allow connect() to access it.


    • reducer (Function): A single reducer composed of all other reducers (create with redux.combineReducer)
    • [middlewares] (Function[]): Optional, An array containing all the middleware that should be applied. Functions and strings are both valid members. String will be resolved via Angular, allowing you to use dependency injection in your middlewares.
    • [storeEnhancers] (Function[]): Optional, this will be used to create the store, in most cases you don't need to pass anything, see Store Enhancer official documentation.
    • [initialState] (Object): Optional, the initial state of your Redux store.

    connect(mapStateToTarget, [mapDispatchToTarget])(target)

    Connects an Angular component to Redux.


    • mapStateToTarget (Function): connect will subscribe to Redux store updates. Any time it updates, mapStateToTarget will be called. Its result must be a plain object or a function returning a plain object, and it will be merged into target. If you have a component which simply triggers actions without needing any state you can pass null to mapStateToTarget.
    • [mapDispatchToTarget] (Object or Function): Optional. If an object is passed, each function inside it will be assumed to be a Redux action creator. An object with the same function names, but bound to a Redux store, will be merged onto target. If a function is passed, it will be given dispatch. It’s up to you to return an object that somehow uses dispatch to bind action creators in your own way. (Tip: you may use the bindActionCreators() helper from Redux.).

    You then need to invoke the function a second time, with target as parameter:

    • target (Object or Function): If passed an object, the results of mapStateToTarget and mapDispatchToTarget will be merged onto it. If passed a function, the function will receive the results of mapStateToTarget and mapDispatchToTarget as parameters.


    connect(this.mapState, this.mapDispatch)(this);
    connect(this.mapState, this.mapDispatch)((selectedState, actions) => {/* ... */});


    Returns a Function allowing to unsubscribe from further store updates.


    • The mapStateToTarget function takes a single argument of the entire Redux store’s state and returns an object to be passed as props. It is often called a selector. Use reselect to efficiently compose selectors and compute derived data. You can also choose to use per-instance memoization by having a mapStateToTarget function returning a function of state, see Sharing selectors across multiple components

    Store API

    All of redux's store methods (i.e. dispatch, subscribe and getState) are exposed by $ngRedux and can be accessed directly. For example:

    $ngRedux.subscribe(() => {
        let state = $ngRedux.getState();

    This means that you are free to use Redux basic API in advanced cases where connect's API would not fill your needs.

    Dependency Injectable Middleware

    You can use angularjs dependency injection mechanism to resolve dependencies inside a middleware. To do so, define a factory returning a middleware:

    function myInjectableMiddleware($http, anotherDependency) {
        return store => next => action => {
            //middleware's code
    angular.factory('myInjectableMiddleware', myInjectableMiddleware);

    And simply register your middleware during store creation:

    $ngReduxProvider.createStoreWith(reducers, [thunk, 'myInjectableMiddleware']);

    Middlewares passed as string will then be resolved throught angular's injector.

    Using DevTools

    In order to use Redux DevTools with your angular app, you need to install react, react-redux and redux-devtools as development dependencies.

    import { devTools, persistState } from 'redux-devtools';
    import { DevTools, DebugPanel, LogMonitor } from 'redux-devtools/lib/react';
    import React, { Component } from 'react';
    angular.module('app', ['ngRedux'])
      .config(($ngReduxProvider) => {
          $ngReduxProvider.createStoreWith(rootReducer, [thunk], [devTools()]);
      .run(($ngRedux, $rootScope) => {
          <App store={ $ngRedux }/>,
        //To reflect state changes when disabling/enabling actions via the monitor
        //there is probably a smarter way to achieve that
        $ngRedux.subscribe(_ => {
            setTimeout($rootScope.$apply, 100);
      class App extends Component {
      render() {
        return (
            <DebugPanel top right bottom>
              <DevTools store={ } monitor = { LogMonitor } />
        <div ng-app='app'>
        <div id="devTools"></div>
