Lots of colleagues have been asking me variations of the same question:

“If we’re using hooks in our project, are we going to even need Redux?”

“Don’t React hooks make Redux obsolete? Can’t I just do all the same things Redux does with hooks?”

A quick Google search will show that people are asking these questions all over the internet.

The fast answer to “Do React hooks replace Redux?” is “not really.”
