    each-async

    Async concurrent iterator (async forEach)

    Like async.each(), but tiny.

    I often use async.each() for doing async operations when iterating, but I almost never use the other gadzillion methods in async.

    Async iteration is one of the most used async control flow patterns.

    I would strongly recommend using promises instead. You could then use the built-in Promise.all(), or p-map if you need concurrency control.

    Install

    $ npm install --save each-async
    

    Usage

    const eachAsync = require('each-async');
    
    eachAsync(['foo','bar','baz'], (item, index, done) => {
    	console.log(item, index);
    	done();
    }, error => {
    	console.log('finished');
    });
    //=> 'foo 0'
    //=> 'bar 1'
    //=> 'baz 2'
    //=> 'finished'

    API

    eachAsync(input, callback, [finishedCallback])

    input

    Type: Array

    Array you want to iterate.

    callback(item, index, done)

    Type: Function

    Called for each item in the array with the following arguments:

    • item: the current item in the array
    • index: the current index
    • done([error]): call this when you're done with an optional error. Supplying anything other than undefined/null will stop the iteration.

    Note that order is not guaranteed since each item is handled concurrently.

    finishedCallback(error)

    Type: Function

    Called when the iteration is finished or on the first error. First argument is the error passed from done() in the callback.
