What is module local state? 174

 What is module local state?

In Vuex, module local state refers to the specific state object owned by a particular module within the larger global store. It's essentially the data managed by that module, separate from the state of other modules and the main store.

Here's a breakdown of the concept:

  • Vuex store: The central state management system in your Vue.js application. It holds the whole application state in a single object.

  • Modules: Smaller, independent Vuex stores within the main store. Each module manages its own part of the global state.

  • Module local state: The object that holds the data specific to a particular module. It's separate from the state of other modules and the main store.

Why is module local state important?

  • Isolation: It enables isolation of data owned by different modules, preventing accidental mutations or conflicts between them. This improves data integrity and makes the code more predictable.

  • Focus and organization: Each module manages its own data, making the code more focused and easier to understand. Developers can concentrate on the specific functionality of a module without worrying about interfering with other parts of the application.

  • Reusability: Module local state can be reused across different components or even in other projects, promoting cleaner code and efficient state management.

Accessing module local state:

  • From within the module: You can directly access the module local state using the state keyword within the module's mutations, actions, and getters.

  • From other modules or components: You need to use the appropriate path and syntax to access the state of another module. This involves specifying the module name and potentially the nested state key within the module's local state object.

Here are some examples of accessing module local state:

  • Within a module:


mutations: {
  updateProduct(state, { id, data }) {
    const product = state.products.find(p => === id);
    Object.assign(product, data);

  • From another module:


// Accessing state from "cart" module
const cartState = this.$store.state.cart;
const totalItems = cartState.items.length;

Remember, module local state offers a structured and isolated way to manage your application's state within Vuex. By understanding its role and utilizing it effectively, you can build a more scalable, maintainable, and resilient state management system for your Vue.js projects.

Feel free to ask if you have any further questions about accessing, modifying, or managing module local state in your Vuex code. I'm happy to help!
