Leave Redux for a few moment and Try GX 😍😍

What's GX ?

GX is Javascript library used to manage global state within a React and React Native applications like Redux and other do.

It's a Lightweight, very Performant and Easy to use library for managing state 😍.

More about GX.

GX is my library that I released on febuary (the first version) and I'm so happy for that archievement. I used it now in all my personal projects and it's well integrated into React environment (React Native, NextJs). With less configuration you can state working 😁😁

How it works ?

Well, there is some concepts that you have to know to be able to use this library.


A signal is just a particular state that can contains one resources such as products, users, current user and so on. So If you want to create a global state to save for example a list of products, you have to create a signal.

In this example I create a signal to save a counter value, that can be incremented and decremented by calling actions which are defined in the actions property of the object parameter of the createSignal function.


A store is the place where you have to register all your signal in order to make them available from anywhere in your application.

Set the Provider

GX comes with a provider which is used to make the store accessible from anywhere in your application.

Now, as the library is correctly set up, we can now consume our state (the counter value) and act to it by incrementing or decrementing its value.

So easy to use 🀩🀩

Similar to zustand?

I don't know how zustand works, I created this Library by basing myself on my experience with Context API and Redux.

But it does the same thing like Zustand but not in the same way, I suppose.
