Normalized Reducers Utils
This project targets open-source utility functions and types for normalized reducers architectures. In this project's scope, I worked on:
• A standard protocol to interact with an application's front end to make CRUD operations on it consistent, regardless of the data that is being stored or consumed. In simple English, this framework provides the tools to interact with the state of a front-end application in a similar way to how clients interact with a RESTful API.
• A set of strongly typed CRUD action interfaces and reducer handlers that enforce a consistent reducer architecture that enables a web application's robust and reliable scaling.
• A framework that simplifies the migration of async logic away from components and into a dedicated middleware layer.
