A Promise is an object representing the eventual completion or failure of an asynchronous operation.
Here's the link to the code demonstrating the callback -> Promise and callback ->
When working with rxjs, you might find yourself in a situation where you want to integrate a promise in a reactive code base. In order to embrace the full reactivity, it's a good idea to convert that promise into an observable so we can easily pipe other operators or even combine it with other streams.
I've developed a promise library for java so let me introduce it.
There's no solid way to check if a
Promiseis pending or finished, at least not in Node.js, so I wrote this simple snippet back in few months ago while I was searching for a simple way. I couldn't' find anything with one line max that will check the state of a promise so I came up with this simple solution. I have posted this solution on StackOverflow too. It's nothing special just an elegant & hacky way but works flawlessly on every Node.js version from 8~14. It's not stable though and the rational solution here should be a native method inside V8's core to check if a promise is pending or not.
While this works perfectly, there are two big problems:
1) Promise only runs once. When it resolves with an existing ID, I can't go to the previous view and click a different element - it would have already run and still renders the first thing clicked.
2) The await part of the async/await only will work as intended when it receives a Promise. So can't just pass an ID as a string/number - returns undefined and everything breaks.
How to convert a promise-based asynchronous code to async/await format, thus making it more readable?
Now let us treat
findByIdas an async function and fix our code to ensure our promise is resolved before running any operations that depend on our resolved data.
Hello fellow readers! In this post I am going to show how to create and use a deferred promise hook in React. Feel free to ask or give your opinion in the comments section.
It is important that you may have some knowledge about promises to fully understand this article. If you don't, please read this great article from MDN.
But wait, it's 2021. Cool kids don't do that anymore. What we need, is to make our function return something awaitable. And there is nothing more awaitable than a Promise. Here is the Promise constructor
I found myself using this code and some derivatives time and time again so I decided to share. It's not written by me, and I found it on Edd Mann's blog. There are a few npm libraries that deal with promise cancellation in a similar manner, but I somehow prefer to have this few lines of source code somewhere in my util functions.
Have you ever been at a situation where you wanted to resolve a Promise you returned from outside, when needed?
In the code above, the
fetchBananasfunction returns a promise. We can "cancel" the promise by having a conditional in the scope of
useEffect, preventing the app from setting state after the component has unmounted.
For some reason, the promise I created at usersTable.create is not resolving correctly. When I call .then() after, I get the error: UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: TypeError: Cannot read property 'then' of undefined.
The resolveAfter2Seconds function will return a new Promise. Every promise has a state. The initial state is
pending. After that, it can change to
rejected. When it is
fulfilledit will pass the value from the resolve to the then function you can then do whatever you want with it. If the state changes to
rejectedthen it will run the catch() function. I hope the very basics of promises are now clear.
Hey guys ! Once again I'm back with an indepth video were we discuss ES6 Promises. I know that async/await is the new way people prefer to deal with async code but I think it's always good to know about callback functions, promises, and promise methods.
Promises are a way to write asynchronous code, which means that a function will return some data in a certain time in the future and the code will continue to execute. For example let's say we want to make a burger because we are hungry. So what we do, we can put the meat on the stove, and in parallel with this we can cut the vegetables. When the meat is ready we remove it from the hot plate and put it in the burger, then we put the vegetables and we are ready. Cooking the meat is the Promise and when it is ready we do something with it, this is what we call asynchronous programming.
Promises are available since ES2015 to simplify the handling of asynchronous operations. Promises have two well-known combinators:
race. Both of them are useful, but they don't cover all the use-cases. What if we want to wait for all the Promises even if some of them go to error or only the first successful operation is essential? I'll show you the new Promise combinators that will help you give the answers to these questions.
But that's actually not the case when using Promise-based APIs since by design they don't contain any notion of 'clean up' or 'tear down' logic.
Promises são estruturas que lidam com valores que podem ser obtidos futuramente em uma execução, por exemplo, uma requisição para um servidor externo, ou então uma leitura de um arquivo. O que poucos sabem é que, de fato, a Promise é um padrão de projeto que pode ser implementado utilizando orientação a objetos e a especificação descrita no PromisesA+.
Let's first try to create a Promise and an Observable which just finishes with one value.
Consider the GIFs like watching a slow-mo video of Promise API methods in action. The scenarios for each Promise API describe how they work with an emphasis on Promise status transition, value/reasons, and the order.
No exemplo acima conseguimos ver como ela é ansiosa, porque ao declarar a Promise o conteudo dela já é executado imediatamente, sem mesmo esperar ser invocada através do
A Promise is an Object that is used to return a deferred computation. Mostly the deferred computation is asynchronous operation. The function that return a promise, we can attach success and failure callback. For example
A while back I read an article about how static typing does not prevent
bugs being added to software. The article is appropriately named: The broken promise of static typing. The author conducted research by generating and comparing 'bug density' scores for GitHub repositories. The bug density score was determined by getting the average number of issues labelled 'bug' per repository.
fetchBookfetches data from the API and results in Promise which returns book data on resolution and error on rejection.
There are still things that are easier to do in Promise syntax. What is more, programming in async/await without understanding what is happening underneath might lead to actual inefficiencies or even errors.
When dealing with
Promiserejections, you will have to use a different approach. According to MDN you'll find the following
window.onunhandledrejection. It states as such:
Once the status updated,
pending->rejected, it can be changed again. The
prom1is different from
prom2and both of them return new Promise status.
According to MDN Web docs, "The Promise object represents the eventual completion (or failure) of an asynchronous operation and its resulting value."
There are lot of things you can do with Promise. Today, I will share my experience on using promise for modal which I recently learned.
Tl;dr finished up talking about await and execution blocking.
Went over why
Promiseis still valuable and powerful even if not using
post-me is a typescript library that provides a simple promise-based API for bidirectional communication with web workers and other windows (iframes, popups, etc.).
Someone may ask: why a Promise must be asynchronous? Can't we have a synchronous Promise? (off-topic: the executor function in Promise constructor is executed synchronously.) The answer is: it could be but it shouldn't be. Having an asynchronous model simplifies the design, as Promise represents the eventual result of an asynchronous operation. For a Promise we only concern the value (and/or reason for no value). So a Promise just tell you "I'll eventually give you a value but not sure about when it's available (and doesn't necessarily to be in a micro-task.)". Even a fulfilled/rejected Promise notifies the value asynchronously, to make the design consistent. So you know the callback in
.thenis always deferred. Otherwise,
This is a poor use-case for promise-based modals. Despite being presented as a modal, we're still in an actual
<form>with live validation, and that validation may change which email templates we're allowed to choose or vice-versa. Keeping that validation intact when the modal contents are elsewhere would be obnoxious. By defining the modal inline, the selection remains part of the form at all times.We're just using the language of modals to "zoom-in" on the details of one field while our user manipulates it.
number. However it is impossible to determine your function's return type or your Promise's resolution value. This is due to the fact that once you lose the information about a function signature or a promise resolution value you cannot recover it just by examining the function or Promise. Detailed summary of what can be type checked can be found in the docs.
This is a mess! Callback hell like this was the motivation behind the Promise API, which in turn spawned the async/await API. In a moment we'll break down what this is doing, but for now let's just enjoy how clean our function looks with async/await:
Promiseis an object that may produce a value at some point in the future.
But let's suppose that now i need my method importCustomer to be async, the snippet code above won't work, because it will return a promise and the exception that i'm expecting is coming in the Promise Rejection.
