Mutation Side-Effects

When mutations update more than one resource, it may be tempting to simply expire all the other resources.

However, we can still achieve the high performance atomic mutations if we simply bundle all updated resources in the mutation response, we can avoid this slow networking cascade.

Network Cascade

Response Bundling


You're running a crypto trading platform called dogebase. Every time a user creates a trade, you need to update some balance information in their accounts object. So upon POSTing to the /trade/ endpoint, you nest both the updated accounts object along with the trade you just created.

POST /trade/
"trade": {
"id": 2893232,
"user": 1,
"amount": "50.2335324",
"coin": "doge",
"created_at": ""
"account": {
"id": 899,
"user": 1,
"balance": "1337.00",
"coin_value": "3.50"

To handle this, we just need to update the schema to include the custom endpoint.

import { resource } from '@data-client/rest';

export const TradeResource = resource({
path: '/trade/:id',
schema: Trade,
}).extend(Base => ({
create: Base.getList.push.extend({
schema: {
trade: Base.getList.push.schema,
account: Account,

Now if when we use the getList.push Endpoint generator method, we will be happy knowing both the trade and account information will be updated in the cache after the POST request is complete.

export default function CreateTrade() {
const ctrl = useController();
const handleSubmit = payload => ctrl.fetch(TradeResource.create, payload);

Feel free to create completely new RestEndpoint methods for any custom endpoints you have. This endpoint tells Reactive Data Client how to process any request.
