How to reset state in Redux?

You need to write a root reducer in your application which delegate handling the action to the reducer generated by combineReducers().

For example, let us take rootReducer() to return the initial state after USER_LOGOUT action. As we know, reducers are supposed to return the initial state when they are called with undefined as the first argument, no matter the action.

const appReducer = combineReducers({
/* your app's top-level reducers */
});
const rootReducer = (state, action) => {
if (action.type === 'USER_LOGOUT') {
state = undefined;
}
return appReducer(state, action);
};

In case of using redux-persist, you may also need to clean your storage. redux-persist keeps a copy of your state in a storage engine. First, you need to import the appropriate storage engine and then, to parse the state before setting it to undefined and clean each storage state key.

const appReducer = combineReducers({
/* your app's top-level reducers */
});
const rootReducer = (state, action) => {
if (action.type === 'USER_LOGOUT') {
Object.keys(state).forEach((key) => {
storage.removeItem(`persist:${key}`);
});
state = undefined;
}
return appReducer(state, action);
};
