Build Status

Oath

Oath is a tiny javascript library for node and the browser that makes it easy to build and interact with promise/future based APIs.

What is a future/promise anyway?

A future (or promise), is an alternative method to callbacks when working with asyncronous code. For more information check out the very information Wikipedia article on Futures and Promises.

Installation

Oath is available for both server-side and the browser.

Node.js

Package is available through npm:

npm install oath

Browser

Download the package and include either the normal or minimized build in your HTML header.

<script src="/public/js/oath.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="/public/js/oath.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
