Calling Dispatch function from a blank javascript file

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

So i’m writing a React-Redux web app, and i call dispatch from my react components like this :

this.props.dispatch(someAction());

Now i need to call dispatch from a javascript function that is not a React Component, so how do i import the dispatch function and use it in this case ?
Thank you.

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

The dispatch function is a member of your redux store. If you created and exported your store in a module, it would be as easy as importing the store in your module and calling the dispatch function.

Example:

// store.js
import { createStore } from 'redux'

export default createStore(reducers)


// somefile.js
import store from './store'

store.dispatch(someAction)

Method 2

The dispatch method is one of the store‘s methods. react-redux makes dispatch available to components as props via the provider, and mapDispatchToProps.

You can dispatch directly from the store:

store.dispatch(action)

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
