Travis

Collection of tools to manage control flow of/with Promises - inspired by caolan/async.

Works with and without async/await. The lib itself only uses promises.

As someone beautifully put it:

this is like caolan/async which is like lodash but async, but awaitful

Control Flow

A collection of async functions for controlling the flow through a script.

compose

packages/compose/index.js:28-31

Creates a function which is a composition of the passed asynchronous functions. Each function consumes the return value of the function that follows. Composing functions f(), g(), and h() would produce the result of f(g(h())).

Parameters

Examples

import compose from 'apr-compose';

const then = (v) => new Promise((resolve) => resolve(v));

const composed = compose(
  async (v) => await then(v + 1),
  async (v) => await then(v + 2),
  async (v) => await then(v + 3)
);

const output = await composed(1); // 7

Returns Function

parallel

packages/parallel/index.js:34-46

Run the tasks collection of functions in parallel, without waiting until the previous function has completed.

Parameters

Examples

import parallel from 'apr-parallel';

const then = (v) => new Promise((resolve) => resolve(v));

const withArray = await parallel([
  async () => await then(1),
  async () => await then(2)
]);

// withArray = [1, 2]

const withObject = await parallel({
  one: async () => await then(1),
  two: async () => await then(2)
});

// withObject = { one: 1, two: 2 }

Returns Promise

seq

packages/seq/index.js:27-27

Version of the compose function that is more natural to read. Each function consumes the return value of the previous function. It is the equivalent of compose with the arguments reversed.

Parameters

Examples

import seq from 'apr-seq';

const then = (v) => new Promise((resolve) => resolve(v));

const seq = seq(
  async (v) => await then(v + 1),
  async (v) => await then(v + 2),
  async (v) => await then(v + 3)
);

const output = await seq(1); // 7

Returns Function

series

packages/series/index.js:34-46

Run the functions in the tasks in series, each one running once the previous function has completed.

Parameters

Examples

import series from 'apr-series';

const then = (v) => new Promise((resolve) => resolve(v));

const withArray = await series([
  async () => await then(1),
  async () => await then(2)
]);

// withArray = [1, 2]

const withObject = await series({
  one: async () => await then(1),
  two: async () => await then(2)
});

// withObject = { one: 1, two: 2 }

Returns Promise

until

Parameters

Examples

import until from 'apr-until';

const then = (v) => new Promise((resolve) => resolve(v));

  await then();
  return (calls += 1) >= maxCalls;
}, async () => (
  await then(calls)
);

// output = 10

Returns Promise

waterfall

packages/waterfall/index.js:28-41

Runs the tasks array of functions in series, each passing their results to the next in the array.

Parameters

Examples

import waterfall from 'apr-waterfall';

const then = (v) => new Promise((resolve) => resolve(v));

const output = await waterfall([
  async () => await then(1),
  async (v) => await then(v + 2),
  async (v) => await then(v + 3)
]);

// output = 6

Returns Promise

whilst

packages/whilst/index.js:32-37

  apply(then, 3)
]);

// output = [1, 2, 3]
