Write a Counter with Redux - problem

Tell us what’s happening:

Why this does not pass the one test which is Redux store should initialize with state of 0. Bug ?

Your code so far


const INCREMENT = 'INCREMENT'; // define a constant for increment action types
const DECREMENT = 'DECREMENT'; // define a constant for decrement action types

const initState = 0;
const counterReducer = (state = initState, action) => {
  switch (action.type) {
    case INCREMENT: return state + 1;
    case DECREMENT: return state - 1;
    case "RESET": return 0;
    default: return state;
  }
}; // define the counter reducer which will increment or decrement the state based on the action it receives

const incAction = () => ({
  type: INCREMENT
}); // define an action creator for incrementing

const decAction = () => ({
  type: DECREMENT
}); // define an action creator for decrementing

const store = Redux.createStore(counterReducer); // define the Redux store here, passing in your reducers

store.dispatch({type: "RESET"});

console.log(store.getState());

store.dispatch(incAction());
store.dispatch(incAction());
store.dispatch(decAction());
store.dispatch(decAction()); 
store.dispatch(decAction()); //-1

console.log(store.getState());

I deleted all those weird stuff at the end ( you’re not supposed to dispatch the actions, tests are executed automatically in background^^), then I tried to run it and it worked ^^

Good job :smiley:

Thanks :slight_smile: But I alreade figured it out after some time. Indeed tests break when you try to dispatch actions by yourself. This also applies for some other challenges.
