re: You don't have to use Redux VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Note that Sebastian Markbage, a member of the React team, has said Context is not suitable as a replacement for a Flux-based state management system (such as Redux) in the case where high frequency updates to the state are necessary.

See this blog post (close to the end), which references commentary on this GitHub thread about the release of Redux 7 where apparently the Redux team had attempted to use Context internally with mixed results.

Personally, I tend to use Context for data I need across components that isn't likely to change (or change much) while the user is engaged with the application, such as information about the current logged in user.
