Saga and Thunk are the two most popular middlewares for React. Thunk takes a callback approach vs Saga, which takes a iterators and generators based approach. This talk will also provide a gentle introduction to generators and iterators in ES9.


Rough slide

  • Thunk approach
  • In depth examples
  • Brief intro to ES9 features
  • Saga approach
  • In depth examples
  • What works, what doesn’t in each of the approaches. Is Redux even the way to go?
