  1. Hi, I’m a Redux maintainer.

    We have several specific recommendations that would differ from some of the patterns shown in this article:

    – You should use our new official Redux Toolkit package. It includes utilities to simplify several common Redux use cases, including store setup, defining reducers, immutable update logic, and even creating entire “slices” of state at once. In particular, all of the hand-written action types and action creators here are unnecessary, as our `createSlice` API can auto-generate those. It has a `configureStore` function that does most of the work shown in this example, and it uses Immer internally to let you write much simpler immutable update logic. It’s also already written in TypeScript, and designed to minimize the number of explicit type declarations you have to include.
    – We recommend using thunks as the default approach for async logic. Sagas are a great power tool, but most apps don’t need the overhead and complexity of sagas. In addition, sagas don’t play well with TypeScript.
    – The use of a “feature folder” structure is reasonable, but we’d actually suggest trying to use the “ducks” pattern for single-file Redux logic, as that reduces the number of files you have to deal with. This becomes even easier because `createSlice` basically gives you ducks file for free.

    Finally, note that we have a Usage with TypeScript docs page that gives instructions on how to use TS with Redux apps.

  2. Thank you so much for your valuable feedback and enhancement. i will update the article as per the suggested way in the documentation.
