Building Reducer Using Redux Toolkit

Redux Toolkit is one of the libraries that can help us manage our application state which depends on Redux. It allows us to create reducers within our application and separate each reducer from one another based on any criteria that we desired in a specific kind of module. There are some approaches that we can utilize to build reducers in Redux Toolkit.


Basic Shape
const slice = createSlice({
    // ...
    reducers: {
    	increment: (state) => {
        	state += 1;
        }
    } 
});

On the code above, it seems that we mutate the state, but actually, Redux Toolkit utilizes Immer in the backstage so it will be translated into immutable operation. Then, unlike legacy libraries that require us to manually define the action that will be dispatched to be handled by a specific reducer, Redux Toolkit can generate action creators for us.

const { increment } = slice.actions; // "increment" is the action creator

Then, we can dispatch the action inside our component following any activity we desired.

<button onClick={ () => dispatch(increment()) }>Add</button>

Basic Shape With Payload

Commonly we need to pass a payload to be processed by the reducer. It can be achieved by utilizing the second parameter in a reducer function.

const slice = createSlice({
    // ...
    reducers: {
    	incrementBy: (state, action: PayloadAction<number>) => {
        	state += action.payload;
        }
    } 
});

Reducer With Pre-formatted Payload

Sometimes, we need to pre-format our payload before it is consumed by the reducer. We can declare our reducer as an object with specific properties rather than as a single function as the previous ones.

const slice = createSlice({
    // ...
    reducers: {
    	createArticle: {
            reducer: (state, action: PayloadAction<any>) => {
            	// do something
            },
            prepare: (title, author) => ({
            	payload: {
                    id: uuid(),
                    title,
                    author,
                    createdOn: Date.now(),
                }
            }),
        }
    } 
});

Then, we can pass the parameters which align with the configuration when we dispatch the action.

dispatch(createArticle(title, author));

Dispatching Action with Thunk Function

Originally, Redux Toolkit is integrated with thunk middleware that allows a function to be passed into a dispatch call and to interact with the dispatch and getState methods inside it. It can be used to perform asynchronous logic before dispatching specific actions.

const sampleThunk = (dispatch, getState) => {
  setTimeout(() => {
    const currentState = getState();
    dispatch(increment());
    const nextState = getState();
  }, 2000);
}

dispatch(sampleThunk)

If we want some data to be passed to the function, we can create a wrapper for that.

const sampleThunk = (amount) => (dispatch, getState) => {
  setTimeout(() => {
    const currentState = getState();
    dispatch(incrementBy(amount));
    const nextState = getState();
  }, 2000);
}

dispatch(sampleThunk(10))

Asynchronous Thunk using createAsyncThunk

The createAsyncThunk function will generate a thunk function that can provide a mechanism to interact with the store or auto-dispatch certain actions. It can be used when we want to monitor the states of asynchronous calls and then perform any action related to it. The function accepts two parameters, the first is the action name, and the second is the payload creator.

const getAllArticles = createAsyncThunk('article/getAllArticles', async (data?: any) => {
  const response = await client.get('http://localhost:3000/article');
  return response.data;
});

Now, the getAllArticles function can be passed into a dispatch call.

dispatch(getAllArticles());

Besides that, the variable will be appended with additional action creator properties related to an asynchronous activity that can be read to initiate specific actions and handled by reducers. The properties are pending, fullfiled, and rejected. Now, we can create extra reducers in our slice definition.

const slice = createSlice({
    reducers: {
    	// ...
    },
    extraReducers: (builder) => {
      builder
        .addCase(getAllArticles.pending, (state) => {
          // do something
        })
        .addCase(getAllArticles.fulfilled, (state, action: PayloadAction<Article[]>) => {
          // do something
        })
        .addCase(getAllArticles.rejected, (state, action) => {
          // do something
        });
  },
});

We can also perform additional actions in our component related to asynchronous results other than what is performed in the slice by using the unwrap method which is available when the dispatch function is instantiated.

try {
	await dispatch(getAllArticles()).unwrap()
	// do something
} catch (err) {
	console.error('Failed to get the articles: ', err)
} finally {
	// do something
}

Setting Up Next.js Project With ESLint, Typescript, and AirBnB Configuration

If we initiate a Next.js project using the  create-next-app tool, our project will be included with ESLint configuration that we can apply using yarn run lint . By default, the tool installs eslint-config-next and extends next/core-web-vitals in the ESLint configuration. The Next.js configuration has been integrated with linting rules for React and several other libraries and tools. yarn create next-app --typescript For additional configuration such as AirBnB, it is also possible. First, we need to install the peer dependencies of eslint-config-airbnb . We also add support for Typescript using eslint-config-airbnb-typescript . yarn add --dev eslint-config-airbnb eslint-plugin-import eslint-plugin-jsx-a11y eslint-plugin-react eslint-plugin-react-hooks yarn add --dev eslint-config-airbnb-typescript @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin @typescript-eslint/parser After that, we can update the .eslintrc.json file for the new configuration. { "extends": [ "airb

Rangkaian Sensor Infrared dengan Photo Dioda

Keunggulan photodioda dibandingkan LDR adalah photodioda lebih tidak rentan terhadap noise karena hanya menerima sinar infrared, sedangkan LDR menerima seluruh cahaya yang ada termasuk infrared. Rangkaian yang akan kita gunakan adalah seperti gambar di bawah ini. Pada saat intensitas Infrared yang diterima Photodiode besar maka tahanan Photodiode menjadi kecil, sedangkan jika intensitas Infrared yang diterima Photodiode kecil maka tahanan yang dimiliki photodiode besar. Jika  tahanan photodiode kecil  maka tegangan  V- akan kecil . Misal tahanan photodiode mengecil menjadi 10kOhm. Maka dengan teorema pembagi tegangan: V- = Rrx/(Rrx + R2) x Vcc V- = 10 / (10+10) x Vcc V- = (1/2) x 5 Volt V- = 2.5 Volt Sedangkan jika  tahanan photodiode besar  maka tegangan  V- akan besar  (mendekati nilai Vcc). Misal tahanan photodiode menjadi 150kOhm. Maka dengan teorema pembagi tegangan: V- = Rrx/(Rrx + R2) x Vcc V- = 150 / (150+10) x Vcc V- = (150/160) x 5

How To Use Git in Netbeans

Git is a popular version control application nowadays. Recently I have created a note about its differences with SVN and how to use it in Eclipse . There are many Git client tools. But I just want to show how to use Netbeans built-in Git tools. It makes the development process easier because it has been integrated with the IDE. Create Remote Git Repository We need a remote Git repository so everyone can store or receive any revision or updated files through the networks. We can set up our own Git server or use a public Git server like Github . In this note, I use Github. 1. Create an account in Github and create an empty Git repository Create an empty public repository in Github 2. Get the remote repository link Your Github Repository URL Create a New Project in Netbeans and Create Local Git Repository After we have a remote Git repository, we can create a project stored in the remote repository. We also need to create a local repository before we can push

Raspberry Pi Bluetooth Connection

Raspberry Pi 3 provides a built-in Bluetooth module. The latest Raspbian has been bundled with tools for enabling Bluetooth connection. The Bluetooth icon will be shown up on the top right corner of the desktop. It's a tool to discover available Bluetooth devices and connect Pi with Bluetooth devices. It is easy to connect any Bluetooth-enabled electronic device with Pi. But, sometimes Pi will fail to connect, especially for Bluetooth device that has no standardized services. From a terminal, we can use the  bluetoothctl tool to scan and connect with a Bluetooth device. You should make sure that the BlueZ protocol stack has been installed by running $ apt-get install bluez Run bluetoothctl to enter the tool command window Turn the power on by running power on (Optional) You can set AutoEnable=true in /etc/bluetooth/main.conf if you want to make the Bluetooth auto power-on after reboot. Run devices to see which devices have been paired Run scan on if your desired d

Configuring Swap Memory on Ubuntu Using Ansible

If we maintain a Linux machine with a low memory capacity while we are required to run an application with high memory consumption, enabling swap memory is an option. Ansible can be utilized as a helper tool to automate the creation of swap memory. A swap file can be allocated in the available storage of the machine. The swap file then can be assigned as a swap memory. Firstly, we should prepare the inventory file. The following snippet is an example, you must provide your own configuration. [server] 192.168.1.2 [server:vars] ansible_user=root ansible_ssh_private_key_file=~/.ssh/id_rsa Secondly, we need to prepare the task file that contains not only the tasks but also some variables and connection information. For instance, we set /swapfile  as the name of our swap file. We also set the swap memory size to 2GB and the swappiness level to 60. - hosts: server become: true vars: swap_vars: size: 2G swappiness: 60 For simplicity, we only check the exi
