SharePoint Framework webpart sample using React, Redux and ImmutableJS
Redux AJAX actions are used together with the SharePoint REST API to display lists in your site. You can also add a new list to the site from this webpart.

Why Redux and ImmutableJS
Every Redux action creates a copy of the state, changes the required properties in the copy and then returns the copy as a new state. This prevents bugs where the state is changed unknowingly.
On the other hand, this can also be performance intensive as for changing only a single element, we have to copy the entire state tree in memory. Fortunately, ImmutableJS comes to the rescue here.
Using ImmutableJS, we can create new state trees in memory without duplicating the elements which are unchanged. When you create a new state object using ImmutableJS, the new object still points to the previous memory locations of unchanged elements. Only the properties which are changed are allocated new memory locations.
