Maintainability Test Coverage

Library defining Redux actions and a reducer to to store a global application level message. This is akin to a toast message or a flash message if you are familiar with Ruby on Rails.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.


flash-message-redux is an npm module and can be downloaded from the npm registry.

Using npm:

npm i --save flash-message-redux

Using yarn:

yarn add flash-message-redux

Using it

Using the flash-message-redux library is fairly easy. You first need to add the reducer to your combineReducers call. Something like:

import { flashMessageReducer as flashMessage } from 'flash-message-redux';
const rootReducer = combineReducers({

Next you simple need to use one of the four actions defined:

  • flashInfo
  • flashWarning
  • flashError
  • clearFlash

Each one will create a flash message with the associated level.

Now the question is where do you use these methods. The methods provided through the module do not prevent you using flash-messages at any level of your application. You could use it in the actions, the reducers or the react components. I would advise you to use it in the React components only. Flash messages are a UI construct and it wouldn't make much sense to put them in the action for example... though it might be tempting to do this as you have contextual information there too.
