State Management

Exploring State Management

We've covered Algebraic Data Types, now let's dive into the realm of State Management, a crucial aspect of building responsive and dynamic web applications.

What is State Management?

State Management is the practice of managing and controlling the data and state of your application.

Why is State Management Important?

  • Centralized and organized state
  • Improved code readability and maintainability
  • Simplified debugging and error handling

Benefits of State Management

State Management offers numerous benefits including:

  • Predictable and consistent application behavior
  • Easier collaboration and code sharing
  • Facilitates testing and debugging

Challenges of State Management

While powerful, State Management also comes with challenges:

  • Complexity and learning curve
  • Potential performance bottlenecks
  • Choosing the right approach for your application

Common State Management Techniques

Various techniques are used for State Management, including:

  • Redux
  • MobX
  • Vuex
  • Apollo Client


Redux is a popular state management library for JavaScript applications. It implements a unidirectional data flow architecture.


MobX is a reactive state management library. It uses observable data structures that automatically update when the data changes.


Vuex is a state management library specifically designed for Vue.js applications. It provides a centralized store for application state.

Apollo Client

Apollo Client is a state management library for GraphQL applications. It manages GraphQL data and state in a centralized manner.

Angular State Management

Angular provides built-in state management techniques like NgRx and @ngrx/store for managing state in Angular applications.

choosing the Right State Management Library

Selecting the appropriate state management library depends on factors such as application size, complexity, and developer preferences.

Best Practices for State Management

  • Keep state as simple and centralized as possible
  • Use immutable data structures
  • Avoid direct mutations of state

Avoiding Common Pitfalls

  • Over-complicating state management
  • Not using the right tools for the job
  • Ignoring performance considerations

State Management in React

In React, popular state management libraries include Redux, MobX, and the Context API.

State Management in Angular

Angular provides built-in state management techniques like NgRx and @ngrx/store, as well as third-party libraries like Akita.

State Management in Vue.js

Vue.js has its own state management library called Vuex, which is tightly integrated with the Vue.js ecosystem.
