re: Redux VS React Context: Which one should you choose? VIEW POST


This is a nice intro and overview!

At my workplace we've used Redux extensively and have now been using React Context a bit more. Both have their place, and React Context doesn't replace Redux which is probably a common misconception and isn't very clear in this article.

These days I lean towards React Context because most of my Redux experience hasn't been very fun. But it's really no fault of the library, it's really how it's been used in particular situations. Mainly, I've seen lots of people use Redux in places where it's not really needed or where it's overkill. It just unnecessarily over-complicates everything in those scenarios. But there are a few work projects where Redux has been great.


I totally agree with you. The reason why some folks hate redux is the fact that they even don't need it. Redux overkill and overcomplicate their simple project. Thanks again for your comment.
