Vision / Motivation
With projects like ReactJS emerging there is a lot of attention lately to uni-drectional data flow concepts. While not a new idea there are currently a lot of projects exploring this realm. E.g. all the flux-like libraries currently emerging for ReactJS (like Redux, alt, etc.).
At the moment, when using libraries like Alt, Reflux, Redux or the like, for every new project usually the developers has to set up actions, a store and anything related. Most of this work is done again and again for new projects.
This projects introduces the concept of gyres which are basically a preset of commands/events, aggregates and projections. The community can create new presets which can be used by anyone else for their projects creating a low barrier of entry for using uni-directional data flow (flux like) approaches.
- Enforces uni-directional data flow using actions, reduces, store and selectors.
- Minimal surface API
examples/* for now. You can run
npm run start to see the example in action on http://localhost:9000.
As long as the library is in exploratory/beta phase versions will be < 1.0 and breaking changes may occur on minor or patch version updates. Once 1.0 hits the project will adhere to semantic versioning.
DDD, CQRS, event sourcing, RX, Redux, GraphQL/Relay, Falcor, materialized views.
Gyre = vortex. A wink to unidirectional data flow.
- The debugger functionality will eventually be split up into a separate project
