— Maybe I'd move away from redux form and maybe go for formik or final forms


If your form element are kinda complex and you have to handle states like focus, filled, error and so on, the complexity grows quickly with the amount of fields, then you have pre filling, conditional validations and so on.... So I wouldn't say that form management libraries for react are useless, you just need to be able to tell when you need them and when not.

— I created a form with real time, dynamic, cross validations, with possibility to hide, make read-only, etc specific fields, with organized permissions per user, warnings, errors... I can not imagine much more complex stuff for a form and everything is done in a simple way using just simple React with Redux

— The problems my mate had with the library were because of abstraction of how the library works, which you don't have when doing things like validation, manually

— This always happens

— In the future, I would like to see a way to synchronize data validation with the backend. so you don't have to do it twice.

— At work we do that

— I receive a validations json from backend

— And build UI from that

— Nice

— And just use React with Redux. Not any Blitz or Redux-form library xdDD

— Asp can do that for like a few years already
