What is a Store?
As we've seen in the State and Props section, Xeito allows you to easily manage the state of your components in a way that your template will react to changes in the state. Nonetheless, there are times when some part of your application state doesn't belong to a single component or inside of one.
For those cases, Xeito provides stores. A store is a simple way to create reactive data that can be shared across your application.
Some examples of when you might want to use a store:
- Sharing data between a service and a component.
- Sharing data between components.
- Keeping track of events that happen in your application.
- Sharing reactive data between your xeito application and native js modules.
Xeito provides three types of stores:
