Chapter 1, Why Redux?, will teach you about the principles that make Redux special, and why Redux should be used in a project. It starts out with the motivation behind Redux (complexity of state management), then briefly covers how Redux works in practice and how certain restrictions allow us to write maintainable, predictable, consistent, and easy-to-test applications.
Chapter 3, Combining Redux with React, covers what React is and why it makes sense to use it. Then you will learn how to set up a project with React and connect Redux to it.
Chapter 4, Combining Redux with Angular, covers using Redux in combination with Angular 1 and 2+ (compatible with Angular 4).
Chapter 5, Debugging a Redux Application, covers how to integrate and use Redux DevTools in an application. Then it covers various Redux DevTools monitors, explaining how to configure and use them in practice.
Chapter 6, Interfacing with APIs, teaches you how to handle asynchronous operations with Redux. Afterwards, this knowledge is used to pull blog posts and users from an API into the Redux store. Finally, you are going to learn how to dispatch actions that change the state in the frontend/client and the backend/server (creating users and posts).
Chapter 7, User Authentication, explains token authentication is and why using it over traditional cookie/session ID authentication makes sense. Next, you will learn how to use and implement an open standard of token authentication--JSON Web Token (JWT).
Chapter 8, Testing, covers using Jest, a testing engine, to write tests for all the elements of Redux.
Chapter 9, Routing, covers how to implement routing with Redux and React, manually and by using libraries such as react-router and react-router-redux.
Chapter 10, Rendering on the Server, this chapter teaches you why server-rendering makes sense and what benefits we get from using this technique. Then, you are going to learn how to implement server-side rendering in a Redux/React application.
Chapter 12, Extending the Redux Store via Middleware, teaches what middleware (specifically, Redux store middleware) is and how it can be used. To wrap up, this chapter ends with a section on general tips and tricks for developing Redux applications.
