Redux 3 Saga

by Daniel Stern

Redux Saga is a fast-growing library with over 9,000 stars on GitHub. It lets you rapidly create asynchronous apps using a new tool called ES6 Generators. In this course, you'll learn about Redux Saga, ES6, testing, effects, and channels.

What you'll learn

The basis of any good, modern Redux application is the ability to orchestrate asynchronous calls to outside APIs, while working with the mostly synchronous language of JavaScript.

In this course, Redux Saga, you'll learn the skills you need to vastly improve your Redux application performance and development time. Throughout the course, you'll be building a non-trivial shopping cart application, where users can add or remove cart items, see shipping and tax totals, and check out, all while keeping state synchronized with the server.

First, you'll delve into Redux Saga, its uses and origins, and how it fits in with other Redux middlewares.
Next, you'll explore nearly ever Redux Saga effect, each illustrated with an example.
Finally, you'll discover Redux Saga channels, testing, and other advanced topics.

By the end of this course, you'll have the necessary knowledge to build a whole application using Redux Saga.
