Pros and cons of using React context API and hooks to manage state instead of Redux

Submitted Aug 8, 2019

The front-end universe is expanding exponentially and there are a bunch of options to choose from in every aspect of front-end development.

State management is the core part of front-end development.

This talk is for people who wants to compare various state management patterns and when to use what.


The talk will be broken down in the following:

  • Why state management is required?
  • Brief intro of redux.
  • Benefits of redux.
  • Problems with redux.
  • When to use the Context API instead of redux.
  • How to scale the Context API using hooks.


Target audience

The target audience are people who have built a few apps in ReactJS and know the importance of state management.

They should have a basic understanding of redux since I will be comparing it with Context API + hooks.

Basic knowledge of hooks and context API will be good to have.
