Build Status js-semistandard-style


This is a redux reducer to handle the asynchronous state changes that happen during a request. The idea comes form the Redux documentation on Async Actions


npm install --save redux-async-state-reducer


Combine the reducer into your root reducer, using combineReducers.

import { createStore, combineReducers } from 'redux'
import asyncState from 'redux-async-state-reducer';
import userReducer from './userReducer';
const rootReducer = combineReducers({
const store = createStore(rootReducer);


These action creators can be added to the actions of your application. My solution is to export them with the rest of my action creators.

actionCreator isFetching didFail success
request true false false
requestFail false true false
requestSuccess false false true

My Usage

I use this reducer to inform my application of the state of the asynchronous tasks I am processing. Say I am fetching data from a Database, and want to show a loading component until the results come back.

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import axios from 'axios';
import ProgressBar from 'react-toolbox/lib/progress_bar';
import LongList from './LongList';
class Main extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    const { actions } = this.props // I keep all my actionCreators under actions
    // using component state for demo purposes. Explanation below.
    this.state = {
      error: null,
      data: []
        function fullfilled(result) {
        function rejection(error) {
            error: error
  render() {
      const { asyncState } = this.props;
    return (
      ? <ProgressBar type='circular' mode='indeterminate' />
      : <LongList data={} /> }

I use the other properties didFail & success to help with displaying error as well.

Explanation Instead of using the state of the Component I would dispatch an action with the promise from axios. I would have redux-promise handle this promise by calling then and finally passing the returned data through to the reducers to update the store. However I wanted to show how the request would be made and when to dispatch the actions provided by this module.
