Creating Actions

The first actions we create will be simple, they’ll take in an array of locations we’ll pass in at the start of the application and just dispatch them to the store.

We create an action by creating a class, the class’ prototype methods will become the actions. The class syntax is completely optional you can use regular constructors and prototypes.

Inside those actions you can use this.dispatch to dispatch your payload through the Dispatcher and onto the stores. Finally, make sure you export the created actions using alt.createActions.


var alt = require('../alt');

class LocationActions {
  updateLocations(locations) {
    return locations;

module.exports = alt.createActions(LocationActions);
