Can I submit my form using websockets? #

Yes. redux-form has built-in support for managing submitting state and errors using promises, but you can easily replicate its behavior using any other asynchronous paradigm. All you need do is to dispatch the START_SUBMIT and STOP_SUBMIT actions yourself using the exported Action Creators.


import { startSubmit, stopSubmit } from 'redux-form'

function submitForm(data, dispatch) {
  // tell redux-form that the submission has started
  dispatch(startSubmit('myFormName'))

  channels.methods.push('submit:myFormName', { data })
  receive('ok', () => {
    // tell redux-form that the submission has stopped
    dispatch(stopSubmit('myFormName'))
    // ^ not necessary if you are redirecting or doing something
    //   else that will result in the form state being destroyed
  }).receive('error', response => {
    const { errors } = response
    // tell redux-form that the submission has stopped with errors
    dispatch(stopSubmit('myFormName', errors))
  })
}

The submitForm function can then be passed either as an onSubmit prop to your decorated form or as a parameter to handleSubmit() inside your form component. For more on this, look at the handleSubmit() docs.
