We met up at PlayBrain’s office in Tokyo where it’s Director of Engineering Steven explained how they use React, Redux and redux-saga for their online gaming platform dekki.


From it’s main page:

Redux is a predictable state container for JavaScript apps. It helps you write applications that behave consistently, run in different environments (client, server, and native), and are easy to test. On top of that, it provides a great developer experience, such as live code editing combined with a time traveling debugger. You can use Redux together with React, or with any other view library. It is tiny (2kB, including dependencies).


From it’s main page:

redux-saga is a library that aims to make side effects (i.e. asynchronous things like data fetching and impure things like accessing the browser cache) in React/Redux applications easier and better.
