πŸ”₯ Redux example

This example is quite different from the previous ones.
Our goal here is to show you how we can use RN Notifications library in real-life, in a more complicated environment.
For this reason, we built a dummy login screen.
In this example, we use the Redux Toolkit library.
Let's go step by step through it, and check where exactly notifications were triggered.

Redux Example component​

import React from 'react'
import { store } from '../redux/store'
import { Provider } from 'react-redux'
import { LoginForm } from '../components/loginForm/LoginForm'
import { createNotifications } from 'react-native-notificated'

const { NotificationsProvider } = createNotifications({
isNotch: true,

export const ReduxExample = () => {
return (
<Provider store={store}>
<NotificationsProvider />
<LoginForm />

Redux Example is the main component, where we apply redux Provider, NotificationsProvider and render LoginForm component.

Let's check what happened here:

  • we imported React (of course), store (previously created), redux Provider, LoginForm component (previously created) and well known createNotifications
  • we didn't pick useNotifications hook. Only createNotification, because we're not triggering notifications here
  • because NotificationsProvider is applied on the same level as LoginForm we have access to the notifications inside the form




import { configureStore } from '@reduxjs/toolkit'
import formReducer from './reducers'

export const store = configureStore({
reducer: {
form: formReducer,

export type RootState = ReturnType<typeof store.getState>
export type AppDispatch = typeof store.dispatch

In the store.ts file, we:

  • import configureStore function, from @reduxjs/toolkit. That function is necessary to create the store.
  • import formReducer (we will describe this function in the next paragraphs)
  • create store with configureStore function, and pass formReducer as a reducer there, with a key form
  • export two types: RootState and AppDispatch which we use to type useDispatch and useSelector hooks (we will come back to them soon)


import { TypedUseSelectorHook, useDispatch, useSelector } from 'react-redux'
import type { RootState, AppDispatch } from './store'

export const useAppDispatch = () => useDispatch<AppDispatch>()
export const useAppSelector: TypedUseSelectorHook<RootState> = useSelector

We're now inside the hooks.ts.
Because we use typescript, we also want to type useDispatch and useSelector provided by Redux. Thanks to that we received useAppDispatch function which is a typed useDispatch and useAppSelector which is typed useSelector We will use them in the app, instead of using useDispatch and useSelector.


This file (reducers.ts) is most important for us, because we use our notify() function here.

import { createSlice, Dispatch, PayloadAction } from '@reduxjs/toolkit'
import { notify } from '../components/loginForm/LoginForm'

type FormState = {
login: string
password: string

const initialState: FormState = {
login: '',
password: '',

export const formSlice = createSlice({
name: 'form',
reducers: {
updateLogin: (state, action: PayloadAction<string>) => {
state.login = action.payload
updatePassword: (state, action: PayloadAction<string>) => {
state.password = action.payload
submit: (state) => {
if (state.login.length < 4) {
notify('error', {
params: {
title: 'Incorrect login',
description: 'Login must contain at least 4 characters. ',
style: {
multiline: 2,
if (state.password.length < 4) {
notify('error', {
params: {
title: 'Incorrect password',
description: 'Password must contain at least 4 characters. ',
style: {
multiline: 2,
notify('success', {
params: {
title: 'Welcome again',
description: 'You have successfully signed in. ',
style: {
multiline: 2,

export const { updateLogin, updatePassword, submit } = formSlice.actions

export default formSlice.reducer

export const fetchUsers = (dispatch: Dispatch) => {
setTimeout(() => dispatch(submit()), 2000)

In this file we:

  • import function and types: createSlice, Dispatch, PayloadAction from the @reduxjs/toolkit
  • and the notify() function from the LoginForm component. Why from there? In our opinion, it belongs there. We just want to use it in the reducers.ts file, that's why we have imported it here
  • create the type for our initialState (type FormState), and create initialState which contains only login and password, because it's all we need in our simple form
  • create formSlice which contains our reducers: updateLogin, updatePassword and submit.
    The updateLogin and the updatePassword are just updaters, which are responsible for our state change, but submit is a function that sends our data to the backend (Of course, as we can see, it is not doing that. It's just making simple validation, and check if the login and the password have at least 4 characters but shhh ;) ).
    If there is a problem with validation, our error notifications are used. If everything is fine, we use success notification.
  • after that, we just export our reducer function and the reducer itself
  • The last step is to create fetchUsers function, which imitates the time we need to get a response from the backend. In fact, we just wrap our submit here

This is where we used our notify() function. Let's go to the last file: LoginForm where we use all of that.

Login Form​

import React from 'react'
import {
} from 'react-native'
import { fetchUsers, updateLogin, updatePassword } from '../../redux/reducers'
import { useAppDispatch, useAppSelector } from '../../redux/hooks'
import { styles } from './styles'
import { createNotifications } from 'react-native-notificated'

export const { notify } = createNotifications()

export const LoginForm = () => {
const login = useAppSelector((state) => state.form.login)
const password = useAppSelector((state) => state.form.password)
const dispatch = useAppDispatch()

const handleLoginChange = (e: NativeSyntheticEvent<TextInputChangeEventData>) => {

const handlePasswordChange = (e: NativeSyntheticEvent<TextInputChangeEventData>) => {

return (
<SafeAreaView style={styles.container}>
<Text style={styles.title}> Sign In </Text>
<View style={styles.form}>
<Text style={styles.label}>E Mail</Text>
<TextInput onChange={handleLoginChange} value={login} style={styles.input} />
<Text style={styles.label}>Password</Text>
<TouchableOpacity style={styles.button} onPress={() => fetchUsers(dispatch)}>
<Text style={styles.buttonText}>Confirm</Text>

So again at the beginning, we need to import everything we need:

  • react native components and event
  • our reducers (please remember that fetchUsers is in fact submit with setTimeout)
  • our hooks, because we use them instead of useDispatch and useSelector
  • styles (previously prepared)
  • and createNotifications to get access to the notify()

After that we pick and export notify() (we're using it in the reducers.ts file).

Our LoginForm component consists of:

  • login (that we pull from the state)
  • password (that we pull from the state)
  • dispatch function
  • handleLoginChange function (where we dispatch updateLogin)
  • handlePasswordChange function (where we dispatch updatePassword)

In fact, that is all...

We need to pass the function to the inputs and the submit button.

Now let’s take a look at our notifications when we provide an invalid email or password vs. when we enter valid data.
