global state and context

i couldn't find anything on documentation regarding global state management and contexts. is there a way to manage all of my contexts built in in refine or a way for global state management? if not, which library would be best to use with refine for global state management? is zustand okay?

Hi @atakan0298. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Refine provides a robust framework for building data-intensive applications and includes built-in support for state management. However, based on the extracts provided, there is no direct mention of built-in capabilities for managing global state or contexts specifically within Refine itself. For global state management, Zustand is highlighted as a viable option. Zustand is described as a small, fast, and scalable barebones state-management solution that uses simplified flux principles, with a comfortable API based on hooks. It is not opinionated and does not wrap your app in context providers like React-Redux does. Zustand promotes immutability by default, ensuring that state updates are handled in an immutable fashion, which simplifies state management and prevents common mutation-related bugs. Given its characteristics, Zustand could be a good fit for use with Refine for managing global state in your application. You can find more about Zustand in the provided extract here (https://refine.dev/blog/zustand-react-state#what-is-zustand). While Refine leverages React Query for data fetching, caching, and state management related to server-state, for client-side global state management, integrating Zustand as described could complement Refine's capabilities well. For more detailed guidance on integrating Zustand with Refine, or exploring other options for global state management within Refine applications, I recommend consulting the official Refine documentation or community resources for the most current and comprehensive advice. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Hello @atakan0298, Zustand or any other library is okay 🙌 Refine provides features with react context api. It means if is something valid in react also valid in Refine
