Allow async redux initial state

See original GitHub issue

right now redux initial state can be set by export const reduxInitialState but I have a request to fulfil where redux initial state can be decided after an Ajax request only. Is there a way to do it? if not I would rather suggest following solution:

export const reduxInitialState = async() => {
   const data = await someAsyncFunction();
   return {
       some: "staticData",
       dynamic: data 

And where ever the function is utilised it can be awaited!

export const reduxReducers = appReducers;

export const reduxMiddlewares = [
