re: New Redux Hooks: A Before And After Comparison. Are They Better? VIEW POST

re: To be honest redux hooks sucks, I think they just released for the sake of having hooks, I was afraid of people jumping on hype train and redux app...

First when you use redux hooks with your components, it's violating the SRP principle, and your component is bound to redux, now let's say you don't want to use redux anymore, you can't.

This is not true you still can and should have your presentation and control components separate by using a wrapper control component with hooks that passes props down to a presentatioon component that is not aware of redux. It's just that the connect HOC does this without requiring us to write the boiler plate of another control component. So yes, hooks are not a replacement for connect but they are heck a convenience feature in situations where you might need a bit of state and the component is not a re-usable presentation component such as your top level page.


I don't know where you got that from, like I mentioned before, if you're doing on parent level, you're doing what hoc is doing, second it's has performance impact, you can read about it in redux docs. With hoc you can use reselect and connect itself avoids re-renders, but that's not the case with hooks.

At our company after a looooot of consideration, we banned redux hooks from usage.

Except useSelector does a strict equality check by default and you can pass a shallow equality comparer function to it for well, shallow comparison just like connect. If any of these techniques result in equality, the hook does not cause a re-render. You do realise that the connect HOC itself is implemented using hooks right? You should read the source code. It's just really easy to use till you figure out hooks.
