polyasync

Simple JS module for web applications to do async things using Promise, Fetch API and setImmediate.

Compatible with modern browsers. If you want to support older browsers, you will need polyfills for Promise and Fetch API. I recomend:


Warning!

Now polysync was upgraded to version 2 and there are breaking changes.

  • Fetch API polyfill was not included anymore. Modern browsers already have native support, if you need polyfill for old browsers, add it to your application.
  • Module filenames were changed. If you are using path to the files or Unpkg CDN complete URL version, it is necessary to update your path strings.
  • .all(urls, cfg, type) method was replaced by .fetchAll(urls, cfg, type) for semantic reasons like the brand new method .execAll(urls, cfg, type)

Installation

npm i -S polyasync

or

yarn add polyasync

or

<script src='https://unpkg.com/polyasync'></script>

Usage

ES6

import polyasync from 'polyasync'

CommonJS

const polyasync = require('polyasync')

Global

When using via script tag, polyasync object will be global available.

Basic methods

.asap(fn, ...args)

This method tries to return a setImmediate object if available at global enviroment, else it simply emulates using setTimeout.

polyasync.asap(myFunction, arg1, arg2, ...args)

.exec(fn)

Returns a new Promise(fn) object just for convenience.

polyasync.exec((done, fail) => {
	// async code here
}).then(done).catch(fail)

.fetch(url, cfg)

Returns a Fetch API object. Fetch API returns a Promise which resolves on HTTP response or rejects on HTTP error.

polyasync.fetch(url, cfg).then(done).catch(fail)

Arguments expected are the same for Fetch API itself. But, some little and useful abstractions are applied to simplify polysync usage.

If you want to send parameters on your request, just add a body in cfg containing a literal object with all your key:value pairs for any HTTP method request.

If your request is a GET (default), then cfg.body will be serialized into a query string, else it will be converted to a FormData object if necessary. So you can also send HTML Form or FormData object for not GET requests.

polyasync uses queryfetch to convert cfg.body into query string or FormData to send it with Fetch API request.

It is also possible to send JSON content. Just set content-type to application/json at cfg.headers. Then your cfg.body literal object will be serialized using JSON.stringify.

polyasync tests HTTP response for any error status >= 300. The error will cause a Promise rejection and can be catched.

polyasync.fetch('my/url', {
	method: 'post',
	body: {
		foo: 'bar',
		lorem: 'ipsum'
	}
}).then(resp => {
	// do your magic
}).catch(error => {
	// or not...
})

Useful abstracted methods

.execAll(array)

New in v2.0.0.

Returns a Promise.all object with a little abstraction, just for convenience. Promise.all returns a Promise which resolves with an Array of results after all Promises resolve, or rejects if any Promise rejects.

The array argument will be processed by .tasks(array) method before Promise execution to turn all non Promise items into Promises.

const tasks = [
  new Promise(fn),
  fetch('my/url'),
  Promise.resolve(any),
  function(done, fail) { /* async code here */ },
  function(done, fail) { /* more async code here */ }
]

polyasync.execAll(tasks).then(done).catch(fail)

.execRace(array)

New in v2.1.0.

Returns a Promise.race object with a little abstraction, just for convenience. Promise.race returns a Promise which resolves or rejects with the fastest Promise in the array.

The array argument will be processed by .tasks(array) method before Promise execution to turn all non Promise items into Promises.

const tasks = [
  new Promise(fn),
  fetch('my/url'),
  Promise.resolve(any),
  function(done, fail) { /* async code here */ },
  function(done, fail) { /* more async code here */ }
]

polyasync.execRace(tasks).then(done).catch(fail)

.tasks(array)

New in v2.1.0

Returns a new Array converting all non Promise items into Promises.

The array argument can contain Promises or executor Functions for Promises. Anything else will be parsed with Promise.resolve.

const tasks = [
  new Promise(fn),
  fetch('my/url'),
  Promise.resolve(any),
  function(done, fail) { /* async code here */ },
  function(done, fail) { /* more async code here */ },
  'some string',
  34e5,
  null
]

const promises = polyasync.tasks(tasks) // Now all items are Promises

.fetchAll(urls, cfg, type)

Replacing .all(urls, cfg, type) since v2.0.0.

Executes a request for each url in the urls Array using the same optional cfg object for all. The type argument is an optional string to define which polyasync action will request all urls.

Only urls Array argument is mandatory, cfg default is { method: 'get' } and type default is fetch.

For type you can use fetch (default), json, text, bool, num, float, int, xml or html.

It returns .execAll(tasks) and resolves with an array of results or rejects if any request fails.

const urls = [...] // a list of urls

polyasync.fetchAll(urls, null, 'json')
	.then(results => console.dir(results))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))

.fetchRace(urls, cfg, type)

New in v2.1.0

Executes a race of requests for each url in the urls Array using the same optional cfg object for all. The type argument is an optional string to define which polyasync action will request all urls.

Only urls Array argument is mandatory, cfg default is { method: 'get' } and type default is fetch.

For type you can use fetch (default), json, text, bool, num, float, int, xml or html.

It returns .execRace(tasks) and resolves with the fastest result or reject.

const urls = [...] // a list of urls

polyasync.fetchRace(urls, null, 'text')
	.then(results => console.dir(results))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))

.json(url, cfg)

Executes a polyasync.fetch and expects a JSON return to parse and return it to resolved response.

polyasync.json(url, cfg)
	.then(json => console.dir(json))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))

.text(url, cfg)

Executes a polyasync.fetch and returns resolved response as text.

polyasync.text(url, cfg)
	.then(text => console.log(text))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))

.bool(url, cfg)

Executes a polyasync.text and tries to parse the response as boolean.

polyasync.bool(url, cfg)
	.then(bool => console.log(bool))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))

.num(url, cfg)

Executes a polyasync.text and tries to parse the response as number.

polyasync.num(url, cfg)
	.then(num => console.log(num))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))

.float(url, cfg)

Executes a polyasync.num and tries to parse the reponse as float.

polyasync.float(url, cfg)
	.then(float => console.log(float))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))

.int(url, cfg)

Executes a polyasync.num and tries to parse the reponse as integer.

polyasync.int(url, cfg)
	.then(int => console.log(int))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))

.xml(url, cfg)

Executes a polyasync.text and tries to parse the reponse as XML document.

polyasync.xml(url, cfg)
	.then(xml => console.dir(xml))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))

.html(url, cfg)

Executes a polyasync.text and tries to parse the reponse as HTML document.

polyasync.html(url, cfg)
	.then(html => console.dir(html))
	.catch(e => console.error(e))
