If you’ve worked with the React useState hook before, you might have wondered why global state management can’t be just as easy. Why do we still need so much boilerplate to manage state with the Context API? What if we don’t want to be constrained opinionated tools like Redux Toolkit or forced to use actions and reducers in our React applications? This is where Hookstate comes in. Hookstate is not just another state management solution. Apart from being feature-rich, fast, and flexible, the library takes the idea of simplifying state management in React apps to a whole new level. In this talk, I’ll introduce Hookstate as a simple and efficient state management solution for React applications.
Efficient State Management With Hookstate
AI Generated Video Summary
This Talk introduces hook state as a flexible and simple state management solution for React. It demonstrates how hook state can be used for global state management, as well as for managing state within individual components. The speaker highlights the ease of using hook state for tasks such as adding, updating, and removing tasks. The conclusion encourages further exploration of hook state for efficient state management in React applications.
1. Introduction to Hook State
Hey, everyone. My name is Ebenezer Dawn, advocate at JetBrains for Webster MITE. I want to talk about efficient state management with hook state. Hook state is a state management solution for React. It's flexible and takes simplicity to a whole new level. I will use this application to demo hook states. We have two components for this application, one for not completed tasks and another for completed tasks. They share the same state using hook state for state management. Managing global state with hook state is easy compared to other tools like Redux or react context API.
Hey, everyone. Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening. My name is Ebenezer Dawn, advocate at JetBrains for Webster MITE. And I want to talk about efficient state management with hook state.
Okay, what's hook state? Well, it's understandable if you've not heard about hook state before. Hook state is not that old in the game. It's a state management solution for React. And one thing I really like about it, apart from hook state being flexible and it takes simplicity to a whole new level.
So I want to use this application to demo hook states. I know, I know that to do operate is the only way I could show you create read update and delete the simplest way rather than I can show you that with a state management tool like hook state for example. So right in auto job we can complete task that's updating the task. We can also delete that we can add new tasks. So do stuff. And I've decided to use two different components for this application. We have the to dew components which represents the not complete that task, that's one component, we have another component for the completed task. And these two components share the same state, raising hook state for state management.
2. Using HookState for Global State Management
Can I just do tasks.push and I have my new task. This is why I love HookState. Now let me go back to the main branch where I have the implementation for HookState. This is an application built with HookState. And right in the store.js file, this is how we're using HookState to create a global state. We have store and that's equal to the create state method from add HookState slash core. So you want to install hookstate, that's npm install slash core, or yarn add HookState slash core. And why we have slash core right now is because HookState remember I said is very extensible.
Can I just do tasks.push and I have my new task. This is why I love HookState. Now let me go back to the main branch where I have that should be this, where I have the implementation for HookState. This is an application built with HookState. And right in the store.js file, this is how we're using HookState to create a global state.
We have store and that's equal to the create state method from add HookState slash core. So you want to install hookstate, that's npm install slash core, or yarn add HookState slash core. And why we have slash core right now is because HookState remember I said is very extensible. So we also have hookstate slash persistence, which helps us to persist states in the local stories of browser's local storage. How cool is that? But what we need right now is HookState slash core. And the create state method from HookState slash core. This is all we got to do to create a global state. And we have tasks right inside of the object for create state methods. So why I use an object is because I'm actually want to add other things to let's say this is a global store.
And I want to add other things like something else. And this is my new state right now, this is my new state I can, whatever, whatever methods, HookState makes available to store, which is which contains all the other states is also made available to tasks and to something else. So if we come over to the Apple GS file, we were adding a new task and online 12. It's that simple. So I didn't you guys we have task dot merge and a new task. That's all right now on line seven, we are using the use states hook from HookState to get the value of tax. So we want to use tax from a global store, we have const and then we're destructuring directly we can decide to say this is constate is equal to use stage and then destroy importing from dot slash store and then we decide to do store dot tasks. Yeah, but what we decided to do is destructured a really and then right here we have taxed and we can use that.
Now in HookState to get the value of a state, we need the get method. So right here we have input value that gets and that gets the value of this local state and creates an online eight, we can create global states, we can create local state and greater the state for the input value. And I just do that directly with the use states hook. I don't need the create state for this one. I wanted to be a global state. I use the Create states method. I use the use date hook and then have my local state and input value that gets gets the value of my local state. And you can see right here on line 27, where I'm setting the value of input value to be whatever I use that type inside of the input field.
3. Using HookState for State Management
And I'm using input value to set. And we have the completed component and not completely a component. Both of them use store. We're working with two different components and using that to access one store. To remove a task, we use the non value from hook state slash core. This is me using hook state to access a store, get all the tasks, filter completed tasks, update tasks using the dot set method, and remove tasks using the non value from hook state slash core.
And I'm using input value to set. That's all that's all I gotta do. And we have the completed component and not completely a component. Both of them use store. And all we got to do is import store from dot dot slash store, which is the store the GS file. And on line five, we have task from store. And then for completed task, we're doing in this case is we're doing using tasks that gets to get get all the tasks and raising the filter method to get just the completed tasks.
So remove task and tasks. So this is a particular task when we remove we get its index we use the nested variety from tasks to set the value of that particular task to none, this is how we delete something in hook state, we use the non value from hook state slash core. So we call the set method and then it's argument is none. If you want to set this to something else, say, hey, this is going to be the new value of that particular task, we want to remove the task, and we have none. And that's it. This is me using hook state to access a store, we get in all the tasks. And so we use the get method to get the value of the task. Now we're filtering to get the completed tasks. To update a task, we have the dot set methods, and then that's going to be the new value. Now to remove a task we have the non value from hook state, slash core. And that's what we're going to do to use hook state for state management. I have a longer tutorial on hook state on my YouTube channel. So yeah, you can check it out if you want to see.
