Storybook addon that allows you to listen to Redux events fired by components in the Storybook UI.

Getting Started

Install the project as a dev dependency:

npm install storybook-addon-redux-listener --save-dev

Then, configure it as an addon by adding it to your addons.js file (located in the Storybook config directory).

//  Import addons you needed before (eg. actions and links)
import '@storybook/addon-***/register';
//  And also add new Redux addon
import 'storybook-addon-redux-listener/register'

Create a custom Redux middleware through the helper provided in the project on your store.

import createStorybookListener from 'storybook-addon-redux-listener';

const middlewares = [];

// OPTIONAL: attach when Storybook is active
if (process.env.NODE_ENV === 'storybook') {
  const reduxListener = createStorybookListener();

const createStoreWithMiddleware = (reducers) => {
  return createStore(reducers, applyMiddleware(...middlewares));

const store = createStoreWithMiddleware(Reducers);

// Use store

On a Storybook config file wrap the component with a Provider decorator and the store.

import store from 'store';

stories.addDecorator(getStory => (
  <Provider store={store}>
    { getStory() }

To make this middleware load only when Storybook is active change you start script for Storybook in your package.json.

"scripts": {
  "storybook": "NODE_ENV=storybook start-storybook -p 9001",

Custom Middleware

You can optionally manage the middleware of this plugin by creating your own middleware. This package uses redux-listener-middleware.

Setup a new listener and bind its events to the Storybook API channel:

import listen from 'redux-listener-middleware';
import addonAPI from '@storybook/addons';

export default () => {
  const reduxListener = listen();
  const channel = addonAPI.getChannel();

  const storybookListener = (action) => {
    channel.emit('addon/redux-listener/actionTriggered', action);


  return reduxListener;

When creating your own listener you can control the rules used to fire the events, and attach other events as needed to the middleware.
