What problem does this feature solve?

IMHO, there are several problems with Vuex.

  1. Overuse string when using mapState, mapGetters, mapActions
  2. Duplicated namespace in components

like this:
my-component.vue (AS-IS version)

export default {
  computed: {
    ...mapState("todos", {
      allItems: ({ items }) => items,
    ...mapGetters("todos", {
      doneItems: "doneItems",
      activeItems: "activeItems",

In this code, "doneItmes" is written by string. It will cause bug easily.
And there are duplicated namespace called "todos". It will inhibit maintainabillity.

What does the proposed API look like?

The way to introduce it is not to suggest a new API, but to use the existing API properly.
We can use createNamespacedHelpers API with constants in store directory!



export const NAMESPACE = "todos";


import { createNamespacedHelpers } from"vuex";
import { NAMESPACE } from "./types";

// Key point !
const { mapState, mapGetters, mapActions } = createNamespacedHelpers(NAMESPACE);

export { mapState, mapGetters, mapActions };

export default { /* namespaced, state, getters, mutations, actions */ }


// Key point !
export const DONE_ITEMS = "DONE_ITEMS";

export default {
  [DONE_ITEMS]: state => state.items.filter(todo => todo.isDone),
  [ACTIVE_ITEMS]: state => state.items.filter(todo => !todo.isDone)

If we do this, we can use customized binding helpers.

my-component.vue (TO-BE version)

import * as todos from '@/store/todos'; // Key point !
import * as getters from '@/store/todos/getters'; // Key point !
import * as actions from '@/store/todos/types'; // Key point !

export default {
  computed: {
      allItems: ({ items }) => items,
  methods: {

How about this? If you do not mind this, I would like to post it on the official Vuex document.
You can see the all example code in this repository
