(If you're looking for a WordPress framework, check out [Redux Framework](https://reduxframework.com/).)
It helps you write applications that behave consistently, run in different environments (client, server, and native), and are easy to test. On top of that, it provides a great developer experience, such as [live code editing combined with a time traveling debugger](https://github.com/gaearon/redux-devtools).
You can use Redux together with [React](https://facebook.github.io/react/), or with any other view library.
It is tiny (2kB, including dependencies).

### Developer Experience
I wrote Redux while working on my React Europe talk called [“Hot Reloading with Time Travel”](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsSnOQynTHs). My goal was to create a state management library with minimal API but completely predictable behavior, so it is possible to implement logging, hot reloading, time travel, universal apps, record and replay, without any buy-in from the developer.
Redux evolves the ideas of [Flux](http://facebook.github.io/flux/), but avoids its complexity by taking cues from [Elm](https://github.com/evancz/elm-architecture-tutorial/).
Whether you have used them or not, Redux only takes a few minutes to get started with.
To install the stable version:
npm install --save redux
This assumes you are using [npm](https://www.npmjs.com/) as your package manager.
If you don't, you can [access these files on unpkg](https://unpkg.com/redux/), download them, or point your package manager to them.
Most commonly people consume Redux as a collection of [CommonJS](http://webpack.github.io/docs/commonjs.html) modules. These modules are what you get when you import `redux` in a [Webpack](http://webpack.github.io), [Browserify](http://browserify.org/), or a Node environment. If you like to live on the edge and use [Rollup](http://rollupjs.org), we support that as well.
