React State vs Redux vs MobX vs Context
Submitted by Trivikram Kamat (@trivikram) on Thursday, 4 October 2018
React’s Context API provides a way to pass data through the component tree without having to pass props down manually at every level.
When Context stable API was released with React v16.3.x, there were articles and discussions across the web proclaiming that it’s the death of Redux.
In this talk, we’ll go through a simple application which uses React’s State, and then:
edit the application to use Redux edit the application to use MobX * edit the application to use Context
This is a type of learning by doing, in which we’ll understand the pros/cons of both Redux/MObX/Context by actually writing the code
I’d given this talk at SeattleJS MeetUp (not a conference) on Oct 2nd, 2018 https://www.meetup.com/seattle-react-js/events/254713205/, slides and video link is shared in respective section
In the Meetup talk I’d done live editing, but I plan to show video instead (so that I can talk about the differences)
