redux-via

redux-via provides a basis for using Redux across boundaries with Flux Standard Actions.

By the way, via is Latin for "road", which brings us to a very important question: Why did the Redux FSA-compliant action cross the road? To get reduced at the other side. Duh!

...

OK, let's pretend that supposed joke never happened and get to the point.

Usage

First, install an adapter:

Client and server side configuration look very similar. Specifics will depend on the adapter API. We'll use the names outViaAdapter and inViaAdapter just for the example.

import {inClientViaAdapter as inViaAdapter} from 'redux-via-adapter';
import {outClientViaAdapter as outViaAdapter} from 'redux-via-adapter';

...at the client side, or...

import {inServerViaAdapter as inViaAdapter} from 'redux-via-adapter';
import {outServerViaAdapter as outViaAdapter} from 'redux-via-adapter';

...at the server side. Then...

// ...
const transport = ...; // object dealing with communication
 
const finalCreateStore = compose(
  applyMiddleware(
    outViaAdapter(transport), // initialize for outcoming actions
    anotherMiddleware,
    yetAnotherMiddleware,
  )
)(createStore);
 
const store = finalCreateStore(rootReducer, initialState);
 
// initialize for incoming actions
inViaAdapter(transport, store.dispatch);
 

Meta options

Action flow is controlled by options specified in the meta property.

Client side

broadcast (Boolean)

If true, sends the action to all the other clients. Default value: false

server (Boolean)

If true, sends the action to the server. Default value: false

next (Boolean)

If true, the action continues to the next middleware or the reducer, locally in the server. Default value: true

Server side

broadcast (Boolean)

If true, sends the action to all the clients except the specified in client. Default value: false

client (String)

If broadcast is false, sends the action the specified client. If broadcast is true, sends the action to all clients except the specified client. Default value: undefined

next (Boolean)

If true, the action continues to the next middleware or the reducer in the client(s). Default value: true

Meta object keys conflicts

If redux-via meta keys conflict with other meta keys, use the meta.noConflict function. For example:

// before
const action = {
  type: 'ACTION',
  meta: {server: true} // say this is causing an error in another library
};
// after
import {meta} from 'redux-via';
const action = {
  type: 'ACTION',
  meta: {
    server: 'a-server-name-for-who-knows-what',
    ...meta.noConflict({server: true})  // PEACE!
  }
};

Implementing an adapter

// Doc in progress... In the meantime, redux-via-socket.io can provide an example of how to do it.

npm install --save redux-via

inClientVia(dispatch: Function, action: Object)

Handles incoming actions at client side. Arguments:

  • dispatch: The dispatch function from store.
  • action: The action object.

outClientVia(cross: Function): Function

Builds a middleware that handles outcoming actions at client side. Arguments:

  • cross: The function to cross the action out of the client boundary.
  • Returns a Redux middleware

inServerVia(dispatch: Function, action: Object, client: String)

Handles incoming actions at server side. Arguments:

  • dispatch: The dispatch function from store.
  • action: The action object.
  • client: The client identifier.

outServerVia(cross: Function): Function

Builds a middleware that handles outcoming actions at server side. Arguments:

  • cross: The function to cross the action out of the server boundary.
  • Returns a Redux middleware
