How to make AJAX request in Redux?

You can use redux-thunk middleware which allows you to define async actions.

Let's take an example of fetching specific account as an AJAX call using fetch API:

export function fetchAccount(id) {
return (dispatch) => {
dispatch(setLoadingAccountState()); // Show a loading spinner
fetch(`/account/${id}`, (response) => {
dispatch(doneFetchingAccount()); // Hide loading spinner
if (response.status === 200) {
dispatch(setAccount(response.json)); // Use a normal function to set the received state
} else {
dispatch(someError);
}
});
};
}
function setAccount(data) {
return { type: 'SET_Account', data: data };
}
