Actions #

It is common to be able to call a method and perform an action. To achieve this, you can define methods when creating your store.
Methods are functions that can be defined anywhere in the store definition object.

const store = createAppState('example.store', {
initialState: {
someData: null
},
someAction () {
// perform some action
},
someOtherAction () {
// perform another action
}
})

Each action is invoked in the context of the store which means this refers to the store instance.

const store = createAppState('example.store', {
initialState: {
someData: null
},
someAction () {
doSomeDataLoading()
.then(data => {
// call the setState method to mutate the state
this.setState(state => ({ ...state, someData: data }))
})
}
})

Actions can contain async operations such as fetching data.

The end-goal of an action can either be committing one or more state changes or returning filtered state.
