AsyncPipeline

Do you still use streams in an old fashioned way? 🧐

alt text

Async pipeline bring RxJS operators in Angular templates! πŸ”₯ Useful custom operators included!

alt text

Getting started

  • npm i ngx-async-pipeline
  • Import required modules:
import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';
import { NotModule, LengthModule, SkipModule } from 'ngx-async-pipeline';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    CommonModule,
    NotModule,
    LengthModule,
    SkipModule,
  ],
})
export class AppModule {}
  • Use pipes
<app-errors *ngIf="errors$ | skip:3 | length | not | async"></app-errors>
  • Be awesome 🌈

Available pipes

Custom pipes

Here's a list of custom pipes introduced to bring simplicity and clarity to Angular templates.

RxJS

Here's a list of RxJS operators provided as pipes. Each RxJS pipe has the same API as appropriate operator.

Custom pipes

LengthPipe

// app.module.ts
import { LengthModule } from 'ngx-async-pipeline';

@NgModule({
  imports: [ LengthModule ],
})
export class AppModule {}

// app.component.ts
@Component({
  template: `
    {{ title$ | length | async }}
  `,
})
export class AppComponent {
  title$: Observable<string> = of('Hello, Async Pipeline!');
}

length operator has to be used to retrieve the length of the string or array title$ | length.

LogPipe

// app.module.ts
import { LogModule } from 'ngx-async-pipeline';

@NgModule({
  imports: [ LogModule ],
})
export class AppModule {}

// app.component.ts
@Component({
  template: `
    {{ title$ | log | async }}
  `,
})
export class AppComponent {
  title$: Observable<string> = of('Hello, Async Pipeline!');
}

log operator will console.log each value from the stream title$ | log.

NotPipe

// app.module.ts
import { NotModule } from 'ngx-async-pipeline';

@NgModule({
  imports: [ NotModule ],
})
export class AppModule {}

// app.component.ts
@Component({
  template: `
    <div *ngIf="data$ | length | not | async">
      No Data
    </div>
  `,
})
export class AppComponent {
  data$: Observable<string[]> = of([
    'Hello, Async Pipeline!',
    'Some another string',
    'And one more string',
    'And so on...',
  ]);
}

not operator will negate the value from the stream using ! operator condition$ | not

GetPipe

// app.module.ts
import { GetModule } from 'ngx-async-pipeline';

@NgModule({
  imports: [ GetModule ],
})
export class AppModule {}

// app.component.ts
@Component({
  template: `
    {{ data$ | get:'title' | async }}
  `,
})
export class AppComponent {
  data$: Observable<{ title: string }> = of({ title: 'Here is a title!' });
}

Using get pipe you can get a value from an object by key provided as a param get:'title'. Or, get could be used to retrieve a specific item from an array get:3.

RxJS pipes

  `,
})
export class AppComponent {
  title$: Observable<string> = of('Hello, Async Pipeline!');
}

// app.component.ts
@Component({
  template: `
    {{ title$ | delay:1000 | async }}
  `,
})
export class AppComponent {
  title$: Observable<string> = of('Hello, Async Pipeline!');
}

}
