Recoil - A New State Management Library For React

Recoil utilizes Atoms and Selectors to manage application data, where every Atom consists of a unique key and a piece of data.

Recoil - A New State Management Library For React

Recoil is a new JavaScript state management library created by Facebook. This new library aims to address the issues faced by larger applications using the existing Context API.

What is the issue with the existing state management solution?

As React is a UI library, developers pick the state management solution to ease down the data handling with React technology. Also, the existing state management solutions are thoroughly based around the Flux architecture introduced in the year 2014. On the other hand, libraries like Redux and MobX keep a note that the application state remains consistent, which makes it hard to justify for many applications.

How Recoil is making a difference?

To come out of this issue, React has brought a simple alternative- Context API, that lets developers share data through the component tree. And this can happen without passing props down manually at every level.

With the help of Recoil, a solution to developers who wish to avoid full-blown state management systems, but feel too constrained by the Context API. Here, Recoil solves the problems with the Context API, and these component state can only be shared by pushing it up to the common ancestor.

What more you should know about Recoil?

Context can only store a single value, that an indefinite set of values, each with its own consumers. And this helps in creating the code-split the top of the tree.

Recoil utilizes Atoms and Selectors to manage application data, where every Atom consists of a unique key and a piece of data. This help in managing each Selector represents a piece of derived state, which is further based on multiple Atoms.

Where to access the Recoil?

Recoil is released under the MIT license and is available on GitHub.
