# Thunk

Declares a thunk against your model type definition.


  Model extends object = {},
  Payload = undefined,
  Injections = any,
  StoreModel extends object = {},
  Result = any
  • Model

    The model against which the thunk is being defined. You need to provide this so that the actions that will be provided to your thunk are correctly typed.

  • Payload

    The type of the payload that the thunk will receive. You can set this to undefined if you do not expect the thunk to receive any payload.

  • Injections

    If your store was configured with injections, and you intend to use them within your thunk, then you should provide the type of the injections here.

  • StoreModel

    If you plan on using the getStoreState or getStoreActions APIs of a thunk then you will need to provide your store model so that the results are correctly typed.

  • Result

    If your thunk returns a value then the type of the value should be defined here. The result is returned to the calling point of the dispatch.

# Example

import { Thunk, thunk } from 'easy-peasy';
import { Injections } from './my-store.types.ts';

interface TodosModel {
  todos: string[];
  savedTodo: Action<TodosModel, string>;
  saveTodo: Thunk<TodosModel, string, Injections>;

const todosModel: TodosModel = {
  todos: [],
  savedTodo: action((state, payload) => {
  saveTodo: thunk(async (actions, payload, { injections }) => {
    await injections.todosService.save(payload);

# Declaring a payload as being optional

If you would like to make a payload optional you can use a union with undefined.

import { Thunk } from 'easy-peasy';

interface MyModel {
  doSomething: Thunk<MyModel, string | undefined>;

You can now call the thunk in either of the two ways:

const doSomething = useStoreActions((actions) => actions.doSomething);
