React Native + Redux Tool kit + AsyncStorage

3 steps to add redux with a redux toolkit and async storage in a react-native application

Under the Hood

The story begins when I am developing a non-custodial wallet app and web3 mobile app using react-native.

Once the user creates an account or wallet he/she can view all the wallets and addresses and check the balance.

After creating an account I want to store wallets and async storage as we will not be saving wallets in the database.

Tech Stack

And since I am using react-native so redux will be the state management.

But redux now provides the latest or upgrade way to write actions and reducers called slice, so I’ll be using slice.

  • React
  • React Native
  • Redux Toolkit
  • Redux Persist
  • AsyncStorage Redux persists helps to persist the reducer states and for that, it uses async storage in react-native just like local storage in react.

Installing Packages

  • react
  • react-native
  • react-redux
  • redux-persists
  • @react-native-async-storage/async-storage

Creating Reducer

The Redux toolkit now provides an easy way to write reducers and actions in the same method.

Below is the code

import {createSlice} from '@reduxjs/toolkit';

const initialState = {
  wallet: [
      walletAddress: 'zxcvbnm',
      balance: 100,
      walletAddress: 'asdfghjkl',
      balance: 300,
      walletAddress: 'qwertyuiop',
      balance: 400,
  activeWallet: null,
const walletSlice = createSlice({
  name: 'userWallet',
  reducers: {
    addWallet: (state, action) => {
      return {...state, wallet: action.payload};
    addActiveWallet: (state, action) => {
      return {...state, activeWallet: action.payload};
export const {addWallet, addActiveWallet} = walletSlice.actions;
export const reducer = walletSlice.reducer;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • First, we import createSlice
  • Define initial states
  • Create a slice that contains name, initialState and reducers as the key
  • Define reducers
  • Export actions and reducer from the slice method In just 5 steps, we have to define reducer and action altogether now need to create 2 separate files for actions and reducers and define constants to connect them.

Creating Store

This might seem a little tricky but it’s also not that hard.

  • Import the required methods such as storage, reducer stores and persisted methods
  • Define persistent configuration
  • Define reducers or combine reducers if have multiple
  • Create persisted reducers using persist reducer
  • Create configure store by passing the root reducer
  • Export store and persistor default at the end
import {configureStore, combineReducers} from '@reduxjs/toolkit';
import {persistReducer, persistStore} from 'redux-persist';
import {reducer} from './slice';
import AsyncStorage from '@react-native-async-storage/async-storage';

const persistConfig = {
  storage: AsyncStorage,
  key: 'root',
const rootReducer = combineReducers({

export const persistedReducer = persistReducer(persistConfig, rootReducer);
export const store = configureStore({
  reducer: persistedReducer,
export const persistor = persistStore(store);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Again in 6 steps, our store and persistor are created.

Why we need them, the store contains the entire app storage or data and the persistor basically tells the app how and where to persist the data.

Wrapping Redux to Root App

The last step is to wrap redux to the root of the application along with persistor and store.

  • Wrap the ReduxPersistGate component to the root of the app components
  • Wrap ReduxProvider to the ReduxPersistGate
  • Pass persistor and store both PersistGate and ReduxProvider HOC respectively.
<ReduxProvider store={store}>
    <PersistGate persistor={persistor} loading={null}>
        <Stack.Navigator initialRouteName="HomeScreen">
            options={{headerShown: false}}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now in just 2 steps, our redux state management along with data storage async storage in our case is ready.


Install the required packages

  • Create a slice that basically gives actions and reducers
  • Create a store, persisted store using the redux toolkit and async storage.
  • Wrap Redux HOC to the root of the application Hence in just 3 steps, we have redux-toolkit the latest redux package installed in our react-native app.

Keep developing
