MobX Quick Start Guide

By: Pavan Podila, Michel Weststrate

Overview of this book

MobX is a simple and highly scalable state management library in JavaScript. Its abstractions can help you manage state in small to extremely large applications. However, if you are just starting out, it is essential to have a guide that can help you take the first steps. This book aims to be that guide that will equip you with the skills needed to use MobX and effectively handle the state management aspects of your application. You will first learn about observables, actions, and reactions: the core concepts of MobX. To see how MobX really shines and simplifies state management, you'll work through some real-world use cases. Building on these core concepts and use cases, you will learn about advanced MobX, its APIs, and libraries that extend MobX. By the end of this book, you will not only have a solid conceptual understanding of MobX, but also practical experience. You will gain the confidence to tackle many of the common state management problems in your own projects.

Chapter 6. Handling Real-World Use Cases

Applying the principles of MobX can seem daunting when you first start using it. To help you with this process, we are gong to tackle two non-trivial examples of using the MobX triad of observables-actions-reactions. We will cover the modeling of the observable state, and then identify the actions and the reactions that track the observables. Once you go through these examples, you should be able to make the mental shift in tackling state management with MobX.

The examples we will cover in this chapter include the following:

  • Form validation
  • Page routing
