Redux InitialState with TypeScript

Redux with TypeScript: Focus on InitialState

John Boardman JavaScript, TypeScript 2 Comments

For this blog, I’m going to continue using the example project I’ve used for the last several blogs, Whirlpool. You can find my last post on the Keyhole Dev Blog – Updating Microservices with Netty, Kafka, and React: Whirlpool revisited. Feel free to go back and read about microservices, Netty, Kafka, and React, or just start here with me and continue on the journey. Either way, I’m glad you’re here.

The focus of this blog will be creating Redux’s InitialState using TypeScript. It tends to be tricky to get it to stop complaining about types, so this should be helpful. Personally, I’ve encountered this issue several times across multiple projects, so I think it is worth talking about.

State machines are an old concept. They are a proven solution that provides a solid architectural foundation for application processes. In this article, I hope to provide an introduction to what they are and how they can be useful for a modern web or mobile application engineer. We’ll be focusing on one library in particular – xstate – and how it can allow anyone to easily leverage state machines for managing global or component state.
