@victornoel I don't know anything about ngrx/store. I don't have time right now to explore.
@pfurini I would not call Redux complex, it is rather naive, thinking that a pure functional approach without temporal logic constructs could be used to manage application state mutations

@pfurini wrt nap, render is a special next action. If you want to use the predicate correctly, you would return true if a (synchronous) next action was triggered, false otherwise. You would then render on false. The predicate can be used to decide whether we are ready to release the state to its consumer(s)

@victornoel This might be interesting for you:

@Nivani seems very interesting, thanks for sharing.. I haven't looked through the code yet, but every practical example of angular + SAM is always welcome 👍

@jdubray now I understand that when you said "ngrx pub/sub" at the beginning on the discussion, you actually meant "rxjs pub/sub"...
thx @Nivani

@victornoel sorry, too many libraries.

@Nivani the differences with my implementation are notable:
1/ Every Angular component has a present method to encapsulate mutations. Actions like this are prohibited, you can present to the local SAM instance or the parent/root :
public stopEditing(todo: Todo, editedTitle: string) {
    todo.title = editedTitle;
    todo.editing = false;
When your component is simple that does not make a bit difference, otherwise it does. It also allows you enter use the present method to process/present the parent state representation.

2/ Another big difference, services are innaccessible from any component (only actions and model)
constructor(private sam: NgSAM<Todos>, private todoService: TodoService) {
    todoService.getTodos().then(todos => this.presentTodos(todos));
public remove(todo: Todo) {
    this.todoService.removeTodo( => this.presentTodos(todos));
One could argue that all actions are in the app.component, but I would recommend keeping your application logic separate from your component logic .

wow! this is a rather huge endorsement.
i don't just mean of immer, but of mutability in the context of state management. also, hearing the word "temporal"...
