Simple global state for React with Hooks API without Context API

Introduction

This is a library to provide a global state with React Hooks. It has following characteristics.

  • Optimization for shallow state getter and setter.
    • The library cares the state object only one-level deep.
  • TypeScript type definitions
    • A creator function creates hooks with types inferred.
  • Redux middleware support to some extent
    • Some of libraries in Redux ecosystem can be used.

Install

npm install react-hooks-global-state

Usage

setState style

import React from 'react';
import { createGlobalState } from 'react-hooks-global-state';

const initialState = { count: 0 };
const { useGlobalState } = createGlobalState(initialState);

const Counter = () => {
  const [count, setCount] = useGlobalState('count');
  return (
    <div>
      <span>Counter: {count}</span>
      {/* update state by passing callback function */}
      <button onClick={() => setCount(v => v + 1)}>+1</button>
      {/* update state by passing new value */}
      <button onClick={() => setCount(count - 1)}>-1</button>
    </div>
  );
};

const App = () => (
  <>
    <Counter />
    <Counter />
  </>
);

reducer style

import React from 'react';
import { createStore } from 'react-hooks-global-state';

const reducer = (state, action) => {
  switch (action.type) {
    case 'increment': return { ...state, count: state.count + 1 };
    case 'decrement': return { ...state, count: state.count - 1 };
    default: return state;
  }
};
const initialState = { count: 0 };
const { dispatch, useStoreState } = createStore(reducer, initialState);

const Counter = () => {
  const value = useStoreState('count');
  return (
    <div>
      <span>Counter: {value}</span>
      <button onClick={() => dispatch({ type: 'increment' })}>+1</button>
      <button onClick={() => dispatch({ type: 'decrement' })}>-1</button>
    </div>
  );
};

const App = () => (
  <>
    <Counter />
    <Counter />
  </>
);

API

createGlobalState

Create a global state.

It returns a set of functions

  • useGlobalState: a custom hook works like React.useState
  • getGlobalState: a function to get a global state by key outside React
  • setGlobalState: a function to set a global state by key outside React
  • subscribe: a function that subscribes to state changes

Parameters

  • initialState State

Examples

import { createGlobalState } from 'react-hooks-global-state';

const { useGlobalState } = createGlobalState({ count: 0 });

const Component = () => {
  const [count, setCount] = useGlobalState('count');
  ...
};

createStore

Create a global store.

It returns a set of functions

  • useStoreState: a custom hook to read store state by key
  • getState: a function to get store state by key outside React
  • dispatch: a function to dispatch an action to store

A store works somewhat similarly to Redux, but not the same.

Parameters

  • reducer Reducer<State, Action>
  • initialState State (optional, default (reducer as any)(undefined,{type:undefined}))
  • enhancer any?

Examples

import { createStore } from 'react-hooks-global-state';

const initialState = { count: 0 };
const reducer = ...;

const store = createStore(reducer, initialState);
const { useStoreState, dispatch } = store;

const Component = () => {
  const count = useStoreState('count');
  ...
};

Returns Store<State, Action>

useGlobalState

useGlobalState created by createStore is deprecated.

Type: function (stateKey: StateKey): any

Meta

  • deprecated: useStoreState instead
