The Basic Anatomy of a Flux

In this section, we discuss the bare basics of Flux so that you could get a good grasp of how to build up workflows with states and transitions, pass data around, and make automated decisions.

The Flux Definition is where you define your workflow. Here, you tell Flux all the steps of your workflow represented as states and the transitions to let it know where to go after each step.

States

States represent the individual steps in a workflow. They come in the form of circles that represent a business process which could be an action or a decision based on data or human interaction.

States

Transitions

Transitions are what link states together. When you have just one transition between two states, it is automatically understood that after completing the action associated with a state, you would like to move on to the next one. In the case that one state branches out to two others, transitions need to declare an event that they correspond to. These events will determine which transition to use and what state to go to.
