Haxe Redux Thunk

Redux thunks (from redux-thunk, more informations on thunks available here) are not really compatible with haxe-redux, since they work by dispatching functions instead of actions and catching them in a middleware.

This library reproduces this behavior, but with actual haxe-redux actions and a haxe-redux standard middleware. This works by encapsulating your functions in an instance of the redux.thunk.Thunk enum.

There is no need for redux-thunk runtime library, this is "native" haxe-redux code.



Using haxelib: haxelib install redux-thunk

Add middleware to your store

You have to add the redux.thunk.ThunkMiddleware for your thunks to be applied.

With haxe-redux way of using middlewares:

var middleware = Redux.applyMiddleware(
	mapMiddleware(Thunk, new ThunkMiddleware())

	// Or, if you want to add custom data like it is possible with redux-thunk:
	// mapMiddleware(Thunk, new ThunkMiddleware({custom: "data"}))
	// You can them consume this data with Thunk.WithParams (see below)

createStore(rootReducer, initialState, middleware);

Create your thunks

The usual way of creating thunks is creating a dedicated class with public static functions returning redux.thunk.Thunk enum instances:

class TodoThunk {
	public static function add(todo:String) {
		// Encapsulate your thunk function in a `Thunk.Action` enum to create
		// an action recognized by `ThunkMiddleware`
		// Note that typing here is optional, but can help with autocompletion
		// and proper state typing
		return Thunk.Action(function(dispatch:Dispatch, getState:Void->AppState) {
			var todos = getState().todoList.todos;

			if (Lambda.exists(todos, function(t) return t.text == todo))
				return null;

			return dispatch(TodoAction.Add(todo));

	public static function dummy() {
		// Use `Thunk.WithParams` instead of `Thunk.Action` if you want to
		// consume the custom data from your thunk
		return Thunk.WithParams(function(dispatch, getState, params) {
			trace(params); // {custom: "data"}
			return null;

Use your thunks in a container

You can use your thunks in the mapDispatchToProps function of your containers:

static function mapDispatchToProps(dispatch:Dispatch) {
	return {
		addTodo: function(todo:String) return dispatch(TodoThunk.add(todo))
