So is Flux evolving? For the first time in many months, I think that the answer is yes. There are two API changes that I have noticed consistently in many new Flux implementations. These changes complement each other, and while they seem cosmetic, they also open up some exciting possibilities that weren’t available before. And they don’t even introduce any new concepts, such as cursors or observables! I’m sure that Facebook considered these ideas, but decided to focus on the data flow and the ease of initial understanding. However I think that we’ve lived with this simple Flux long enough that we know its downsides, and it’s time to make it right.
