How I felt while learning Redux

Source

So, I’ve created a new app, Kiven Aa, using React. This was my first encounter with the framework and it totally blew my mind. A revelation indeed!

While React is all roses and sunshine, I longed for some sort of mechanism to put all of my app’s state in one place, instead of handing over the ownership of parts of app’s state to individual components.

I was exactly one Google search away, from this industry favourite library, to do just that. Name’s Redux. I was working on the mobile apps for Kiven Aa, using React Native (not anymore), so I thought of giving Redux a try and that’s exactly when all hell broke loose for me.

Man! this shit is hard to understand, like hard hard.

Maybe I am stupid or just not savvy enough, I don’t know, but this is how I exactly felt while learning Redux. Have a good laugh!

My overall impression about the framework, currently (though it will change in future, most probably, as I gain more experience with the framework)

Disclaimer: This is supposed to be a funny post and documents my initial struggle with the framework. Yes! I did struggle with the concepts. This is in no way an attempt to offend the Redux community.
