Tidy your Reducers with `combineReducers()`

Today I learned by necessity the value of the Redux combineReducers(reducers) function.

combineReducers() supports, in a pretty neat way, the crucial Redux task of delegating to reducing functions their own slice of the state.

The documentation example looks like this:

combineReducers({ todos: myTodosReducer, counter: myCounterReducer });

Which we can improve by naming the reducer functions after the state slices they manage, allowing ES6 shorthand notation:

combineReducers({ counter, todos });

This creates a state object like so:

  counter: ...,
  todos: ...,
