  • Redux Synth

    This is a personal WIP project. I wanted to gather two things I really enjoy: React.js and synthesizing. Moreover, I was very keen to test Redux.js on a more interesting project. It was equally challenging and enjoyable to see how great Redux.js can be when handling the application state.

    In this synthesizer, every piece of state is kept in the Redux store. It's a state-of-the-art piece of code.
