FPipes (Functional Pipes)

FPipes is a utility library that provides a way to chain synchronous and asynchronous functions in a readable manner. It simplifies the flow of data through a series of functions, making your code more readable and maintainable.

This is heavily inspired on TC39 Pipe Operator proposal, and may be deprecated in the future if it gets approved

Installation

To install FPipes, run the following command:

npm install --save fpipes

Usage

Basic Usage

To start a pipe, use the F.pipe() function:

import { F } from "fpipes"

const initialValue = 42

const pipe = F.pipe(initialValue)

To retrieve the final value from a pipe, use the value() method:

const result = pipe.value()
console.log(result) // 42

Chaining Functions

You can chain functions using the pipe() method:

import { F } from "fpipes"

const double = (value: number) => value * 2
const addTen = (value: number) => value + 10

const result = F.pipe(5)
  .pipe(double)
  .pipe(addTen)
  .value()

console.log(result) // 20

Working with Promises

FPipes supports chaining functions that return promises:

import { F } from "fpipes"

const asyncDouble = async (value: number) => value * 2

const result = await F.pipe(5)
  .pipe(asyncDouble)
  .value()

console.log(result) // 10

Behavior of Pipes with Promises

When you add a function that returns a promise to the pipe chain, the entire pipe chain is treated as a promise. This means that you must use the await keyword or the then() method on the final value to access the result. All subsequent functions in the pipe chain will also receive the resolved value of the previous promise.

import { F } from "fpipes"

const asyncDouble = async (value: number) => value * 2
const asyncAddTen = async (value: number) => value + 10

const result = await F.pipe(5)
  .pipe(asyncDouble) // The result of this function is a promise.
  .pipe(asyncAddTen) // This function receives the resolved value of the previous promise.
  .value() // The final value of the pipe is also a promise.

console.log(result) // 20

If you mix synchronous and asynchronous functions in the pipe chain, the pipe will be treated as a promise from the point where the first promise is encountered.

import { F } from "fpipes"

const double = (value: number) => value * 2
const asyncAddTen = async (value: number) => value + 10

const result = await F.pipe(5)
  .pipe(double) // This function returns a value.
  .pipe(asyncAddTen) // This function returns a promise, so the whole chain is treated as a promise from this point on.
  .value() // The final value of the pipe is a promise.

console.log(result) // 20
