The real problem with teaching Redux isn’t the complexity of the Redux framework itself. No. I don’t think that is it. It is just a tiny 2kb library.
Take a look at the Redux community as a beginner, and you’re going to lose your mind fast. There’s NOT just Redux, but a whole lot of other supposed “associated libraries” to build real world apps.
If you’ve spent some time doing a bit of research, then you’ve come across them already.
There’s Redux, React-Redux, Redux-thunk, Redux-saga, Redux-promise, Reselect, Recompose and many more!
As if that’s not enough, there’s also some Routing, Authentication, Server side rendering, Testing, and Bundling sprinkled on it.
Gosh! That is overwhelming.
