    Reactive State

    A typed, wrist-friendly state container aimed as an alternative to Redux when using RxJS. Written with RxJS in TypeScript but perfectly usable from plain JavaScript. Originally inspired by the blog posting from Michael Zalecki but heavily modified and extended since.


    • type-safe actions: no boilerplate code, no mandatory string constants, and not a single switch statement
    • Actions are just Observables, so are Subjects. Just call .next() to dispatch an action.
    • dynamically add and remove reducers during runtime
    • no need for async middlewares such as redux-thunk/redux-saga; actions are Observables and can be composed and transformed async using RxJS operators
    • no need for selector libraries like MobX or Reselect, RxJS already ships it
    • single, application-wide Store concept as in Redux. Possibility to create slices/substates for decoupling (easier reducer composition and state separation by module)
    • Strictly typed to find errors during compile time
    • Heavily unit tested, 100+ tests for ~250 lines of code
    • React bridge (like react-redux) included, though using React is not mandatory
    • Support for React-Devtool Extension


    npm install reactive-state


    Additionally, there is a small example.ts file and see also see the included unit tests as well.

    Example Usage

    import { Store } from "reactive-state";
    import { Subject } from "rxjs";
    import { take } from "rxjs/operators";
    // The state for our example app
    interface AppState {
        counter: number;
    const initialState: AppState = { counter: 0 }
    const store = Store.create(initialState);
    // The .watch() function returns an Observable that emits the selected state change, so we can subscribe to it => console.log("STATE:", JSON.stringify(newState)));
    // the watch() observable always caches the last emitted state, so we will immediately print our inital state:
    // [CONSOLE.LOG]: STATE: {"counter":0}
    // use a RxJS Subjects as an action
    const incrementAction = new Subject<number>();
    // A reducer is a function that takes a state and an optional payload, and returns a new state
    function incrementReducer(state, payload) {
        return { ...state, counter: state.counter + payload };
    store.addReducer(incrementAction, incrementReducer);
    // lets dispatch some actions;
    // [CONSOLE.LOG]: STATE: {"counter":1};
    // [CONSOLE.LOG]: STATE: {"counter":2}
    // async actions? No problem, no need for a "middleware", just use RxJS
    interval(1000).pipe(take(3)).subscribe(() =>;
    // <PAUSE 1sec>
    // [CONSOLE.LOG]: STATE: {"counter":3}
    // <PAUSE 1sec>
    // [CONSOLE.LOG]: STATE: {"counter":4}
    // <PAUSE 1sec>
    // [CONSOLE.LOG]: STATE: {"counter":5}
