Example

This is example has extracted from this boilerplate.

Custom middleware:

export default function clientMiddleware() {
  return ({dispatch, getState}) => {
    return next => action => {
      if (typeof action === 'function') {
        return action(dispatch, getState);
      }

      const { promise, types, ...rest } = action; // eslint-disable-line no-redeclare
      if (!promise) {
        return next(action);
      }

      const [REQUEST, SUCCESS, FAILURE] = types;
      next({...rest, type: REQUEST});

      const client = new ApiClient();
      const actionPromise = promise(client);
      actionPromise.then(
        (result) => next({...rest, result, type: SUCCESS}),
        (error) => next({...rest, error, type: FAILURE})
      ).catch((error)=> {
        console.error('MIDDLEWARE ERROR:', error);
        next({...rest, error, type: FAILURE});
      });

      return actionPromise;
    };
  };
}

Wrapping Superagent library for API call:

import superagent from 'superagent';
import config from '../config';

const methods = ['get', 'post', 'put', 'patch', 'del'];

function formatUrl(path) {
  const adjustedPath = path[0] !== '/' ? '/' + path : path;
  return adjustedPath;
}

export default class ApiClient {
  constructor(req) {
    methods.forEach((method) =>
      this[method] = (path, { params, data } = {}) => new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
        const request = superagent[method](formatUrl(path));

        if (params) {
          request.query(params);
        }

        if (data) {
          request.send(data);
        }

        request.end((err, { body } = {}) => err ? reject(body || err) : resolve(body));
      }));
  }
  empty() {}
}
