State Machine is a library for managing a finite set of states, and moving between them via actions and transitions.
From its intuitive configuration through its powerful event-based architecture and rich API, State Machine makes it easy to describe and manage interaction with complex state-dependent systems like components, multi-step forms, purchase funnels, visualisations or games.
State Machine has been designed from the outset to feel intuitive and fun to use:
- DSL for shorthand transition and handler assignment
- Add and remove states and actions on the fly
- Pause, resume, cancel or end transitions at any point
- Handle system, state, action and transition events
- Rich API and system introspection
- Object-oriented architecture, fully-inspectable in DevTools
