VALTIO

npm i valtio makes proxy-state simple

Wrap your state object

Valtio turns the object you pass it into a self-aware proxy.

import { proxy, useProxy } from 'valtio'

const state = proxy({ count: 0, text: 'hello' })
Mutate from anywhere

You can make changes to it in the same way you would to a normal js-object.

setInterval(() => {
  ++state.count
}, 1000)
React via useProxy

Create a local snapshot that catches changes. Rule of thumb: read from snapshots, mutate the source. The component will only re-render when the parts of the state you access have changed, it is render-optimized.

function Counter() {
  const snapshot = useProxy(state)
  return (
    <div>
      {snapshot.count}
      <button onClick={() => ++state.count}>+1</button>
    </div>
  )
}
Subscribe from anywhere

You can access state outside of your components and subscribe to changes.

import { subscribe } from 'valtio'

// Suscribe to all state changes
const unsubscribe = subscribe(state, () => console.log(`state has changed to ${state}`))
// Unsubscribe by calling the result
unsubscribe()
// Subscribe to a portion of state
subscribe(state.obj, () => console.log(`state.obj has changed to ${state.obj}`))
Suspend your components

Valtio supports React-suspense and will throw promises that you access within a components render function. This eliminates all the async back-and-forth, you can access your data directly while the parent is responsible for fallback state and error handling.

const state = proxy({ post: fetch(url).then((res) => res.json()) })

function Post() {
  const snapshot = useProxy(state)
  return <div>{snapshot.post.title}</div>
}

function App() {
  return (
    <Suspense fallback={<span>waiting...</span>}>
      <Post />
    </Suspense>
  )
}
Update transiently

You can subscribe a component to state without causing render, just stick the subscribe function into useEffect.

function Foo() {
  const ref = useRef(state.obj)
  useEffect(() => subscribe(state.obj, () => ref.current = state.obj), [state.obj])
Use it vanilla

Valtio is not tied to React, you can use it in vanilla-js.

import { proxy, subscribe, snapshot } from 'valtio/vanilla'

const state = proxy({ count: 0, text: 'hello' })

subscribe(state, () => {
  console.log('state is mutated')
  const obj = snapshot(state) // A snapshot is an immutable object
})
