As I was working on my React project (more about that here), I was a bit confused by how asynchronous requests worked in the React/Redux workflow. So I decided to do a bit of research into the topic and dove head first into Redux Thunk.
My fifth and final project for Flatiron School’s Online Full Stack Web Development Program involved creating an application with a React and Redux front end and a Rails API back end. I created Fleddit, a blog application that allows users to share their ideas and comment on them. The requirements for this project were a bit more open-ended than previous projects. We had to create a React app with a certain number of container and stateless components and routes, and we had to make use of async actions that sent and received data from a Rails API. Beyond that, we were free to design whatever we wanted.
