Redux Batch Middleware Build Status

Batch Redux actions.

NPM

Installation

% npm install redux-batch-actions

Usage

import { createStore } from 'redux';
import reducify from 'reducify';
import batchMiddleware from 'redux-batch-actions';
 
 
const store = createStore(
  reducify({
    "GRAPH": (state = 0, action) => action.data
  }),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware({
    "GRAPH": true
  }))
);
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   data: {foo: 'bar'}
});
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   data: {fuz: 'bus'}
});
 
// on next tick:
// State is: {foo: 'bar', fuz: 'bus'}

Merge

By default, batch-actions merges your data objects into a single action.

If you want to customize this, include it as a configuration with your middleware.

import { createStore } from 'redux';
import reducify from 'reducify';
import batchMiddleware from 'redux-batch-actions';
 
const store = createStore(
  reducify({
    "GRAPH": (state = 0, action) => action.data
  }),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware({
    "GRAPH": {
        merge: (state, part) => ({...state, ...part, myProp: {...state.myProp, ...part.myProp}})
    }
  }))
);
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   myProp: {foo: 'bar'}
});
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   myProp: {fuz: 'bus'}
});
 
// on next tick:
// Action is: {type: 'GRAPH', myProp: {foo: 'bar', fuz: 'bus'}}

If you pass in a function as your type config, we'll assume that it's the merge function

import { createStore } from 'redux';
import reducify from 'reducify';
 
 
const store = createStore(
  reducify({
    "GRAPH": (state = 0, action) => action.data
  }),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware({
    "GRAPH": (state, part) => ({...state, ...part, myProp: {...state.myProp, ...part.myProp}})
  }))
);
 
// same as above
 

Batch

If you don't include the action type when you configure your middleware, just include batch as an argument with your action type

import { createStore } from 'redux';
import reducify from 'reducify';
import batchMiddleware from 'redux-batch-actions';
 
const store = createStore(
  reducify({
    "GRAPH": (state = 0, action) => action.data
  }),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware())
);
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   data: {foo: 'bar'},
   batch: true
});
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   data: {fuz: 'bus'},
   batch: true
});
 
// on next tick:
// State is: {foo: 'bar', fuz: 'bus'}

You can also pass in batch config this way.

import { createStore } from 'redux';
import reducify from 'reducify';
 
 
const store = createStore(
  reducify({
    "GRAPH": (state = 0, action) => action.data
  }),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware())
);
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   myProp: {foo: 'bar'},
   batch: (state, part) => ({...state, ...part, myProp: {...state.myProp, ...part.myProp}})
});
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   myProp: {fuz: 'bus'},
   batch: (state, part) => ({...state, ...part, myProp: {...state.myProp, ...part.myProp}})
});
 
// on next tick:
// Action is: {type: 'GRAPH', myProp: {foo: 'bar', fuz: 'bus'}}

Batch Complete

Want to ensure the batch fires synchronously? You'll need to dispatch the batched action with one additional property: batchComplete.

import { createStore } from 'redux';
import reducify from 'reducify';
import batchMiddleware from 'redux-batch-actions';
 
const store = createStore(
  reducify({
    "GRAPH": (state = 0, action) => action.data
  }),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware({
    "GRAPH": true
  }))
);
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   data: {foo: 'bar'}   
});
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   data: {fuz: 'bus'}
});
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   batchComplete: true
});
 
// Action is: {type: 'GRAPH', data: {foo: 'bar', fuz: 'bus'}}

Batch Purge

Want to stop a batch from going out? Add batchPurge to an action and we'll clear it.

import { createStore } from 'redux';
import reducify from 'reducify';
import batchMiddleware from 'redux-batch-actions';
 
const store = createStore(
  reducify({
    "GRAPH": (state = 0, action) => action.data
  }),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware({
    "GRAPH": true
  }))
);
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   data: {foo: 'bar'}   
});
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   data: {fuz: 'bus'}
});
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   batchPurge: true
});
 
// No Action fired on current tick or next

Configuration

Tick

This batching relies on a tick function, that is - any function that we know will fire next time there is a javascript event loop.

By default, we use setTimeout([fn], 1) on the browser and process.nextTick([fn]) on the server. You can change this, however, by passing it in as an option when you declare your middleware.

const store = createStore(
  reducify({}),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware({tick: requestAnimationFrame}))
);

Finalize

Once a batch is going to be committed, we'll run it through a finalize function. This defaults to _.identity.

const store = createStore(
  reducify({}),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware({finalize: action => {...action, hi: 'mom'}}))
);
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   batch: true,
   data: {fuz: 'bus'}
});
 
 
// on next tick:
// Action is: {type: 'GRAPH', data: {fuz: 'bus'}, hi: 'mom'}

If you pass a function to batchComplete, it will be used to finalize.

const store = createStore(
  reducify({}),
  {},
  applyMiddleware(batchMiddleware())
);
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   batch: true,
   data: {fuz: 'bus'}
});
 
 
store.dispatch({
   type: 'GRAPH',
   batchComplete: action => {...action, hi: 'mom'}
});
 
 
// Action is: {type: 'GRAPH', data: {fuz: 'bus'}, hi: 'mom'}
