    Save and load the Redux state with ease.

    Features

    • Flexible storage engines
    • Flexible state merger functions
    • Storage engines can be async
    • Load and save actions that can be observed
      • SAVE: { type: 'REDUX_STORAGE_SAVE', payload: /* state tree */ }
      • LOAD: { type: 'REDUX_STORAGE_LOAD', payload: /* state tree */ }
    • Various engine decorators
    • Black- and whitelist actions from issuing a save operation

    Installation

    npm install --save redux-storage
    

    And you need to install at least one redux-storage-engine, as redux-storage is only the "management core".

    Usage

    import * as storage from 'redux-storage'
     
    // Import redux and all your reducers as usual
    import { createStore, applyMiddleware, combineReducers } from 'redux';
    import * as reducers from './reducers';
     
    // We need to wrap the base reducer, as this is the place where the loaded
    // state will be injected.
    //
    // Note: The reducer does nothing special! It just listens for the LOAD
    //       action and merge in the provided state :)
    // Note: A custom merger function can be passed as second argument
    const reducer = storage.reducer(combineReducers(reducers));
     
    // Now it's time to decide which storage engine should be used
    //
    // Note: The arguments to `createEngine` are different for every engine!
    import createEngine from 'redux-storage-engine-localstorage';
    const engine = createEngine('my-save-key');
     
    // And with the engine we can create our middleware function. The middleware
    // is responsible for calling `engine.save` with the current state afer
    // every dispatched action.
    //
    // Note: You can provide a list of action types as second argument, those
    //       actions will be filtered and WON'T trigger calls to `engine.save`!
    const middleware = storage.createMiddleware(engine);
     
    // As everything is prepared, we can go ahead and combine all parts as usual
    const createStoreWithMiddleware = applyMiddleware(middleware)(createStore);
    const store = createStoreWithMiddleware(reducer);
     
    // At this stage the whole system is in place and every action will trigger
    // a save operation.
    //
    // BUT (!) an existing old state HAS NOT been restored yet! It's up to you to
    // decide when this should happen. Most of the times you can/should do this
    // right after the store object has been created.
     
    // To load the previous state we create a loader function with our prepared
    // engine. The result is a function that can be used on any store object you
    // have at hand :)
    const load = storage.createLoader(engine);
    load(store);
     
    // Notice that our load function will return a promise that can also be used
    // to respond to the restore event.
    load(store)
        .then((newState) => console.log('Loaded state:', newState))
        .catch(() => console.log('Failed to load previous state'));

    Details

    Engines, Decorators & Mergers

    They all are published as own packages on npm. But as a convention all engines share the keyword redux-storage-engine, decorators can be found with redux-storage-decorator and mergers with redux-storage-merger. So it's pretty trivial to find all the additions to redux-storage you need 😄

    Actions

    redux-storage will trigger actions after every load or save operation from the underlying engine.

    You can use this, for example, to display a loading screen until the old state has been restored like this:

    import { LOAD, SAVE } from 'redux-storage';
     
    function storeageAwareReducer(state = { loaded: false }, action) {
        switch (action.type) {
            case LOAD:
                return { ...state, loaded: true };
     
            case SAVE:
                console.log('Something has changed and written to disk!');
     
            default:
                return state;
        }
    }

    Middleware

    If you pass an array of action types as second argument to createMiddleware, those will be added to a internal blacklist and won't trigger calls to engine.save.

    import { createMiddleware } from 'redux-storage'
     
    import { APP_START } from './constants';
     
    const middleware = createMiddleware(engine, [ APP_START ]);

    If you want to whitelist all actions that are allowed to issue a engine.save, just specify them as third argument.

    import { createMiddleware } from 'redux-storage'
     
    import { SHOULD_SAVE } from './constants';
     
    const middleware = createMiddleware(engine, [], [ SHOULD_SAVE ]);

    A fork of redux-storage

    The original author of the package redux-storage has decided to deprecate the project and no longer maintained. The package will now be maintained here.
