I'm trying to understand the sentence below:

For another, the complexity of the app state (and possibly the complexity of the team working on the application, as well) should merit the adoption. (Source)

What does this sentence mean?

    Could you provide a little bit more context? Though merit as a verb means : "deserve or be worthy of (reward, punishment, or attention)" – Bella Swan Dec 2 '19 at 10:56

    ...should merit (justify) adoption (use) of the Redux software development method. – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Dec 2 '19 at 13:13

I'm taking a guess at the context, but it mentions an "app" (computer application), and "adoption" of a software system means that someone or a company begins using it. The first people who buy into, or begin using an application are often called "early adopters".

In this context, "merit" means the quality of being particularly good or worthy.

What the sentence is saying is that "the complexity of the app state" is something that makes the app worth using.
