Recoil is a library for managing state in React applications.
Recoil is designed to be easy to use and efficient, with a focus on improving the performance and scalability of large, complex React applications. It is based on the concept of atoms and selectors, which are used to manage the state of a component. Atoms represent the state of a component, and selectors are used to derive new state from atoms.
Recoil provides a set of utilities and APIs for managing state, including:
- atom: A utility for creating atoms, which represent the state of a component.
- selector: A utility for creating selectors, which are used to derive new state from atoms.
- useRecoilValue: A hook for accessing the value of an atom or selector in a component.
- useSetRecoilState: A hook for updating the value of an atom in a component.
Recoil is often used as an alternative to other state management libraries, such as Redux and MobX, because of its simplicity and performance. It is particularly well-suited for large, complex React applications where the overhead of other state management libraries may be too high.
