This Course in a Nutshell
State management is the number one topic to know when it comes to frontend architecture design choices. Why choose to do state management in a single page application, when to do it and why, what are the benefits, and what are tradeoffs?
These are all critical questions that we will address in this course, as we give you an extended guided tour of the NgRx Ecosystem.
The most popular state management library in the Angular space is NgRx, and for good reasons. The latest release of NgRx is probably one of the most important releases in the whole Angular ecosystem recently. Although backward compatible, it contains so much new functionality that it's almost a brand new state management library.
Under the hood, the core concepts of Actions, Reducers, Effects, Entities, and Selectors remain the same, but we have now a brand new API for managing these concepts in a much less verbose way. Also, we have the inclusion of NgRx Data, which is a new and very powerful way of managing Entity Data.
Actually, NgRx Data is a powerful abstraction layer on top of NgRx, that allows us to add state management to large parts of our application without having to write much code at all!
In this course, we are going to take a small existing application that is built without any state management. We are going to understand what are the consequences of not doing state management by identifying some problems that the application has in its initial form.
Then we are going to start refactoring the application, and we are going to add state management to the application multiple screens step-by-step. We are going to start with the Authentication features of the application, and then we are going to move on to the entity data management part.
We are going to explain at length all the key concepts of NgRx: Actions, Reducers, Effects, and Selectors, and we are going to explain in detail the Store architecture itself and understand its benefits.
Throughout the course we are going to introduce step-by-step and explain in detail the NgRx Store module, NgRx Effects, we are going to cover in detail NgRx Entity and the Entity format, we are going to install and do a guided tour of the NgRx Dev Tools, the NgRx Router Store, and the time-travelling debugger.
We are also going to learn how to make the most out of NgRx Data, and learn how to customize it in order to manage entity data with minimal application code. We will cover NgRx while keeping in mind best practices like good Action hygiene.
