Integrating Redux with React Hooks

React Hooks have revolutionized the way we manage state and side effects in our React applications. They allow us to write cleaner and more readable code. In this blog post, we will explore how to integrate Redux with React Hooks.

What are React Hooks?

React Hooks are functions that let you use state and other React features without writing a class. They were introduced in React 16.8 to make it easier to reuse stateful logic between components.

Using Redux with React Hooks

Redux provides a set of Hook APIs that allow you to connect your React components to the Redux store. Here are some of the most commonly used Redux Hooks:

  • useSelector: This hook allows you to extract data from the Redux store state.

  • useDispatch: This hook returns a reference to the dispatch function from the Redux store.

Here’s an example of how to use these hooks in a component:

import React from 'react';

import { useSelector, useDispatch } from 'react-redux';

import { increment, decrement } from './actions';

const Counter = () => {

  const count = useSelector(state => state.count);

  const dispatch = useDispatch();

  return (


      <button onClick={() => dispatch(decrement())}>-</button>


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




export default Counter;

In this example, useSelector is used to access the count value from the Redux store, and useDispatch is used to dispatch actions to the store.


React Hooks provide a more intuitive way to interact with the Redux store and manage state in your React applications. By integrating Redux with React Hooks, you can write more maintainable and scalable applications.
