Documentation

Redux loading promise middleware

Middleware for Redux that turns promises into several dispatches of loading, success and error states.

It is useful for getting asynchronous data (eg. API calls) into your redux store. Works well together with redux-actions and is inspired by redux-promise.

It is similar to FSA pattern but has some differences:

  • it dispatch async actions twice: when Promise is started and when promise is finished
  • it has isLoading param that can be checked if promise is finished
  • when Promise is rejected, error param

Installation

This package is distributed via npm.

npm install redux-loading-promise-middleware

Example usage

// store.js
import { createStore, combineReducers, applyMiddleware, compose } from 'redux';
import thunkMiddleware from 'redux-thunk';
import promiseMiddleware from 'redux-loading-promise-middleware';
import reducer from './reducer';

const middlewares = compose(
    applyMiddleware(thunkMiddleware),
    applyMiddleware(promiseMiddleware)
);

return createStore(combineReducers({ reducer }), null, middlewares);
// reducer.js
const initialState = {
    todos: [],
    isLoading: false,
    error: null,
};

export default function todos(state = initialState, action) {
    switch (action.type) {
        case 'FETCH_TODOS': {
            return {
                isLoading: action.isLoading, // first time true, second time false
                error: action.error, // valule from rejected promise
                todos: Array.isArray(action.payload) ? action.payload : [], // null or result from successful promise
            };
        }

        default:
            return state;
    }
}
// action.js
export const fetchTodos = () => dispatch => dispatch({
    type: 'FETCH_TODOS',
    payload: fetch('/api/todos'),
});
