Installation

The tools are available in the redux-toolbelt-observable npm package.

npm install --save redux-toolbelt redux-toolbelt-observable rxjs redux-observable

# or

yarn add redux-toolbelt redux-toolbelt-observable rxjs redux-observable

Usage

You may import the functions you'd like to use using one of the two methods:

import { makeAsyncActionCreator } from 'redux-toolbelt';
import { makeAsyncEpic } from 'redux-toolbelt-observable';

// or

import makeAsyncActionCreator from 'redux-toolbelt/lib/makeAsyncActionCreator';
import makeAsyncEpic from 'redux-toolbelt-observable/lib/makeAsyncEpic';

API Reference

makeAsyncEpic

makeAsyncEpic(asyncActionCreator, asyncFn, options?)

Creates an epic that handles actions created makeAsyncActionCreator.
The epic listens to the request action and dispatches success and failure actions.

Example

const fetchTodos = makeAsyncActionCreator('FETCH_TODOS');

const fetchTodosFromServer = () => {
  return axio.get('api/v1/todos');
};

const epic = makeAsyncEpic(fetchTodos, fetchTodosFromServer);

Arguments

asyncActionCreator

An async action creator created by makeAsyncActionCreator.

asyncFn

The async request to be executed. The function accepts the action's payload, type, meta and the store's state$ as parametes. It can return either an Object, a Promise or an Observable.

const fetchTodosAsyncFn = payload => {
  return axio.get(`api/v1/todos/${payload.id}`);
};

const createOrUpdateTodoAsyncFn = (payload, type, meta, state$) => {
  const isNew = !state$.value.todos.find(t => t.id === payload.id);
  return isEdit
    ? axio.put(`api/v1/todos/${payload.id}`, { data: payload })
    : axio.post(`api/v1/todos`, { data: payload });
};

const callMultipleApisAsyncFn = async () => {
  const first = await axios.get('api/v1/first');
  const second = await axios.get('api/v1/second');
  return { first, second };
};

Note: The reason for the asyncFn signature to break down the action into its pars payload, type, meta as opposed to accepting a single action parameter is to simplify a very common scenario where the following mapping is used:

const epic = makeAsyncEpic(actions.updateTodo, api.updateTodo);
actions.updateTodo({ id: 5, text: 'todo 5' });

Had the signature of the asyncFn would have been (action, state$) you would have had to change the epic to:

// WRONG - do not do this
const epic = makeAsyncEpic(actions.updateTodo, action =>
  api.updateTodo(action.paylod)
);

and repeat it again and again.

options

ignoreOlderParallelResolves (deprecating: cancelPreviousFunctionCalls)

If several promises are made before any of them resolves, you can choose to ignore older resolves and only receive the last one by passing true to this option

const fetchTodos = makeAsyncActionCreator('FETCH_TODOS');

const fetchTodosFromServer = payload => {
  /*...*/
};

const epic = makeAsyncEpic(fetchTodos, fetchTodosFromServer, {
  ignoreOlderParallelResolves: true
});

Payload and Meta

You can pass parameters within the ActionCreator like this:

const fetchTodos = makeAsyncActionCreator('FETCH_TODOS');

const fetchTodosFromServer = payload => {
  /*...*/
};

const epic = makeAsyncEpic(fetchTodos, fetchTodosFromServer);

fetchTodos(payload, meta);

After the request has returned successfully, the meta object contains the original meta and an object name _toolbeltAsyncFnArgs with the payload that was sent. For example:

// actions.js
const fetchAddFive = makeAsyncActionCreator('FETCH_ADD_FIVE')

// api.js
const fetchAddFiveFromServer = ({number}) => Promise.resolve(number + 5)

// epics.js
const epic = makeAsyncEpic(fetchAddFive, fetchAddFiveFromServer)

// execute action
fetchAddFive({number: 1}, {a: true})

// on request
{TYPE: 'FETCH_ADD_FIVE@ASYNC_REQUEST', payload: {number: 1}, meta: {a: true}}

// on success
{TYPE: 'FETCH_ADD_FIVE@ASYNC_SUCCESS', payload: 6, meta: {a: true, _toolbeltAsyncFnArgs: {number: 1}}}

This ability makes sure you use the most updated response.

makeSuffixesEpic

makeSuffixesEpic(mapper, suffixes, metaPredicate?)

export const errorInAsyncRequests = makePrefixesEpic(
  ({ payload }, _) => {
    if (payload.status === 401 || payload.status === 403) {
      return actions.reset();
    }
    return showSnack(
      payload?.error.message || payload.message || 'Unknown error'
    );
  },
  ACTION_ASYNC_FAILURE_SUFFIX,
  meta => meta.shouldIgnoreGlobalError
);

makeGlobalErrorEpic

makeGlobalErrorEpic(mapper)

Creates an epic that handles failure actions created by calls to makeAsyncActionCreator.
The helper epic listens to the all failure actions dispatched in the application and allows you to handler them centrally, in one place. A common usage of this epic is to show error messages/notifications/toast in a common way and controlled in a single place in the code.

export const errorInAsyncRequests = makeGlobalErrorEpic(
  ({ payload }) => ({ payload }, _) => {
    if (payload.status === 401 || payload.status === 403) {
      return actions.reset();
    }
    return showSnack(
      payload?.error.message || payload.message || 'Unknown error'
    );
  }
);
