A simple and predictable state management library inspired by Flux + Elm + Redux. Flywheel is built on top of Corotuines using the concepts of structured concurrency. At the core, lies the State Machine which is based on actor model.

Why Flywheel?

The goal was to make the state management concept of Redux simple, understandable & easy to use in Kotlin based projects. To achieve that, we adapted only the core concepts from Redux and slightly modified them. We excluded Android, Apple or any platform-specific dependencies. It is just pure Kotlin. By doing so, you are free to choose your architecture that best suits your codebase, no need to make any big refactor to fit in Flywheel. Don't be fooled by its simplicity, Flywheel got you covered for all practical use-cases. Even if we missed anything, it can be easily extended to support your use cases.

Getting started

In Kotlin Multiplatfrom project:

kotlin {
  sourceSets {
      val commonMain by getting {
          dependencies {

In Android / Gradle project:

dependencies {


In Apple platforms

You can use the Swift Package Manager to install Flywheel by adding the proper description to your Package.swift file:

// swift-tools-version:5.3
import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "YOUR_PROJECT_NAME",
    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "", from: "1.1.5-RC"),

Then run swift build whenever you get prepared.


This is how a simple counter example looks like.

  1. Define a state.

    data class CounterState(val counter: Int = 0) : State
  2. Define actions that can change the state.

    sealed interface CounterAction : Action {
        object IncrementAction : CounterAction
        object DecrementAction : CounterAction
  3. Define a reducer that updates the state based on the action & current state.

    val reduce = reducerForAction<CounterAction, CounterState> { action, state ->
        with(state) {
            when (action) {
                is CounterAction.IncrementAction -> copy(counter = counter + 1)
                is CounterAction.DecrementAction -> copy(counter = counter - 1)
  4. Create a StateReserve.

    val stateReserve = StateReserve(
        initialState = InitialState.set(CounterState()),
        reduce = reduce)
  5. Listen for state changes

    stateReserve.states.collect { state -> println(state.counter) }
  6. Send actions to StateReserve to update the state.
