    Typescript decorators\annotations, utils and abstract classes for react-redux application.
    Adds various utility annotations such as @Single, @EntryPoint, @Connect or @Wrapped.
    Allows you to write class-based declarations of your data storage with strict and predictive typing.
    Enforces typesafety and OOP mixed with functional style (all key features and implementation of redux remains the same).

    Intended to be used with react-redux.


    You are viewing old version of package without separation.
    For newest releases check '@redux-cbd/core'.


    npm install --save redux-cbd


    • Package uses proposal ES reflect-metadata api, so I would advice to get acknowledged with its usage.
    • Package uses 'expirementalDecorators' features (disabled by default for TypeScript transpiler).


    1) Install package.
    2) Inject 'reflect-metadata' into your bundle (webpack entry or import inside your entryfile).
    3) Configure typescript. You should turn on "emitDecoratorMetadata" and "experimentalDecorators" for compiler.
    4) Create some actions (extend simple, complex, async) with @ActionWired annotation.
    5) Create related reducer(extend ReflectiveReducer) with proper @ActionHandlers.
    6) Create rootReducer that includes reflectiveReducers. Declare storeState interface.
    7) Create store based on root reducer. Extend CBDStoreManager, annotate @StoreManaged. Include cbdMiddleware there.
    8) Create @StoreConnect decorator.
    9) Connect component => use props and actions from declarative storage.

    tsconfig.json part:


    What is inside

    Annotations Actions Reducers Middleware Utils
    @Single SimpleAction ReflectiveReducer cbdMiddleware createReflectiveReducer
    @EntryPoint DataExchangeAction IReducerConfig - linkReactConnectWithStore
    @Bind ComplexAction CBDStoreManager - LazyComponentFactory
    @Wrapped AsyncAction - - -
    @StoreManaged - - - -
    @ActionWired - - - -
    @ActionHandler - - - -

    Example (wiki contains more explanations):

    Application entrypoint:

    import * as React from "react";
    import {render} from "react-dom";
    import {EntryPoint} from "redux-cbd";
    import {GlobalStoreProvider} from "./data/redux";
    import {ConnectedComponent, IConnectedComponentExternalProps} from "./view/ConnectedComponent";
    export class Application {
       * { ...{} as IConnectedComponentExternalProps } is the trick for correct types handling.
       * Actually, connected component is different from the one we exported with 'export class'.
       * We should use default export with separate props cast or make such mock trick.
       * (I prefer second style with single class declaration and DIRECTLY NAMED imports, which are better as for me).
       * Also, you can wrap your <Root/> element with '@Wrapped(GlobalStoreProvider)' (check wiki for details).
      public static main(): void {
        render( <GlobalStoreProvider>
          <ConnectedComponent someLabelFromExternalProps={ "Demo prop" } { ...{} as IConnectedComponentExternalProps }/>
        </GlobalStoreProvider>, document.getElementById("application-root"));

    Store, provider and connect creations:

    import {GlobalStoreManager} from "./GlobalStoreManager";
    import {IGlobalStoreState} from "./IGlobalStoreState";
    /* Global store state typing, includes reducers for this one (can exist multiple stores in our app). */
    export {IGlobalStoreState} from  "./IGlobalStoreState";
    /* Singleton store manager. Creates store, providers, contains some info about store. */
    export const globalStoreManager: GlobalStoreManager = new GlobalStoreManager();
    /* Global store provider wrapper, provides correct store and store key for connection. No need to manage store manually. */
    export const GlobalStoreProvider = globalStoreManager.getProviderComponent();
    /* @Connect decorator annotation linked to global store, components can be wrapped in multiple connects with different stores. */
    export const GlobalStoreConnect = globalStoreManager.getConsumerAnnotation();

    State declarations:

    /* State for demo reducer store. */
    /* Class over interface for default init. Will transform to simple object after redux processing. */
    export class DemoReducerState {
      public storedNumber: number = 0;
      public loading: boolean = false;
    /* State for global store. */
    export interface IGlobalStoreState {
      demoReducer: DemoReducerState;

    Our demo reducer:

    import {ActionHandler, ReflectiveReducer} from "redux-cbd";
    import {AsyncDemoAction, AsyncDemoActionSuccess, ComplexDemoAction, SimpleDemoAction, DataExchangeDemoAction} from "../actions";
    import {DemoReducerState} from "../state/DemoReducerState";
    // Reducer class. Typing allows you to create ONLY methods with two params - <genericState, actionType>.
    // Looks for method with same action type and executes it. Just like functional reducer with switch but better.
    // @ActionHandler is not required. Method name does not influence on behaviour.
    // Same action handlers are not allowed inside one class.
    export class DemoReducer extends ReflectiveReducer<DemoReducerState>  {
        public changeStoredNumber(state: DemoState, action: SimpleDemoAction): DemoState {
          return { ...state, storedNumber: action.payload.storedNumber };
        public exchangeSomeData(state: DemoState, action: DataExchangeDemoAction): DemoState {
          return { ...state, storedNumber: action.payload.storedNumber };
        public startLoadingOnAsyncActionReceived(state: DemoState, action: AsyncDemoAction): DemoState {
          return { ...state, loading: action.payload.loading };
        public finishFakeLoading(state: DemoState, action: AsyncDemoActionSuccess): DemoState {
          return { ...state, storedNumber: action.payload.storedNumber, loading: false };
        public handleComplexAction(state: DemoState, action: ComplexDemoAction): DemoState {
          return { ...state, storedNumber: action.payload.storedNumber };

    Our actions for reducer methods (considered to be separate class-files, you know):

    import {ActionWired, AsyncAction, SimpleAction, DataExchangeAction} from "redux-cbd";
    export class DataExchangeDemoAction extends DataExchangeAction<{ storedNumber: number }> {}
    export class SimpleDemoAction extends SimpleAction {
      public payload: { storedNumber: number } = { storedNumber: 0 };
      public constructor(num: number) {
        this.payload.storedNumber = num;
    export class AsyncDemoActionSuccess extends SimpleAction {
      public payload: { loading: boolean, storedNumber: number } = { loading: true, storedNumber: -1 };
      public constructor(num: number) {
        this.payload.storedNumber = num;
    export class AsyncDemoAction<DemoState> extends AsyncAction {
      public payload: { loading: boolean } = { loading: true };
      private readonly delay: number;
      public constructor(delay: number) {
        this.payload.loading = true;
        this.delay = delay;
      public async act(): Promise<number> {
        const forMillis = (delay: number) => new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(resolve, delay));
        await forMillis(this.delay);
        return Math.random();
      public afterSuccess(num: number): AsyncDemoActionSuccess {
        return new AsyncDemoActionSuccess(num);
      /*  public afterError(error: Error) { return new .......... } */
    export class ComplexDemoAction<DemoState> extends ComplexAction {
      public payload: { storedNumber: number } = { storedNumber: 0 };
      public constructor(num: number) {
        this.payload.storedNumber = num;
      public act(): void {
        this.payload.storedNumber *= 1000 + 500 * Math.random();

    Global store manager:

    import {Action, combineReducers, Store, applyMiddleware, createStore, Middleware, Reducer} from "redux";
    import {StoreManaged, CBDStoreManager, cbdMiddleware} from "redux-cbd";
    /* Custom middlewares. */
    import {logInConnectedComponentMiddleware, logInConsoleMiddleware} from "../../view/logInMiddlewares";
    /* Store state, that includes smaller reducers. */
    import {IGlobalStoreState} from "./IGlobalStoreState";
    /* Some Reducers declaration. */
    import {DemoReducerState} from "../demo/state/DemoReducerState";
    import {DemoReducer} from "../demo/reducer/DemoReducer";
    export class GlobalStoreManager extends CBDStoreManager<IGlobalStoreState> {
      // Creating store. Singleton instance for whole app. cbdMiddleware is important there, logs are for demo.
      protected createStore(): Store<IGlobalStoreState, Action<any>> {
        const middlewares: Array<Middleware> = [cbdMiddleware, logInConnectedComponentMiddleware, logInConsoleMiddleware];
        return createStore(this.createRootReducer(), applyMiddleware(...middlewares));
      // Creating root reducer based on our application global state.
      // Recommend to create model/module related ones instead of page-related. For example: auth, userSetting etc.
      private createRootReducer(): Reducer<IGlobalStoreState> {
        return combineReducers( {
          demoReducer: new DemoReducer().asFunctional(new DemoReducerState(), { freezeState: true })
