list-promise

NPM version Downloads Build Status Coverage Status Tip

Maximally-concurrent Promise-aware array manipulation via ListPromise. They're like the plural form of a Promise or a finite Observable.

Install

$ npm install --save list-promise

Usage

import list from 'list-promise';
import { readFile, writeFile } from 'fs-promise';
 
// Promisify an array. 
list(['src/foo.txt', 'src/bar.txt'])
 
    // Read each file (callback returns a Promise). 
    .map((path) => readFile(path, 'utf8'))
 
    // Chunk the characters of each file. 
    .map((file) => file.split(''))
 
    // Merge the chunks into a single array. 
    .concat()
 
    // Remove empty chunks. 
    .filter((file) => file.length > 0)
 
    // Sort the characters. 
    .sortBy((x) => x)
 
    // Reverse the characters. 
    .reverse()
 
    // Join chunks into a string. 
    .reduce((bundle, file) => bundle + file, '')
 
    // Write result to a new file. 
    .then((bundle) => writeFile('dist/bundle.txt', bundle));

API

listPromise(list) : ListPromise

  • list Array|Promise<Array> A list of items which may or may not be Promises.

Creates a promise with map, filter, and reduce methods that can be used to iterate over list items as they are resolved.

ListPromise

.map(fn): ListPromise

  • fn Function(item, i) : item Map callback.

Creates a new ListPromise for the results of mapping a list with a given map function.

list(['a', 'b'])
    .map((x) => x.toUpperCase());
    .then(console.log);
    // -> ['A', 'B'] 

.mapProp(key, fn): ListPromise

  • key String|Number Key of property to modify.
  • fn Function(property, i, item) : item Map callback.

Creates a new ListPromise for the results of mapping a list of items' properties with a given map function.

list([{ foo: 'a' }, { foo: 'b' }])
    .mapProp('foo', (x) => x.toUpperCase());
    .then(console.log);
    // -> [{ foo: 'A' }, { foo: 'B' }] 

.concat(): ListPromise

Flattens a list of lists into a single list.

list([['a'], ['b'], ['b', 'c']])
    .concat();
    .then(console.log);
    // -> ['a', 'b', 'b', 'c'] 

.concatMap(fn): ListPromise

  • fn Function(item, i) : item Map callback.

Convenience shorthand for .map(fn).concat().

list([{ foo: 'ab' }, { foo: 'bc' }])
    .concatMap((x) => x.foo.split(''));
    .then(console.log);
    // -> ['a', 'b', 'b', 'c'] 

.filter(fn): ListPromise

  • fn Function(item, i) : context Filter callback.

Creates a new ListPromise for the results of filtering a list with a given filter function.

list([0, 10, 1, 9, 2, 8])
    .filter((x) => x > 5);
    .then(console.log);
    // -> [10, 9, 8] 

.reduce(fn, [initialValue]): ListPromise

  • fn Function(context, item, i) : context Reduce callback.
  • initialValue * (default: undefined) Initial value to pass to the reducer.

Creates a new ListPromise for the result of reducing a list with a given reducer function. If the reduction results in an array, that array may then be iterated.

list([0, 10, 1, 9, 2, 8])
    .reduce((x, y) => x + y, 1);
    .then(console.log);
    // -> 31 

.reverse(): ListPromise

Creates a new ListPromise for the result of reversing the list.

list(['a', 'b', 'c', 1, 2, 3])
    .reverse()
    .then(console.log);
    // -> [3, 2, 1, 'c', 'b', 'a'] 

.sortBy(fn): ListPromise

  • fn Function(item, i) : any Sort value getter.

Creates a new ListPromise for the result of sorting a list with a property getter function.

list([{ foo: '3' }, { foo: '1' }, { foo: '2' }])
    .sortBy((x) => x.foo);
    .then(console.log);
    // -> [{ foo: '1' }, { foo: '2' }, { foo: '3' }]
