ngx-operators is a collection of helpful RxJS operators for Angular apps.

Installation

Install via

npm i ngx-operators

Operators

prepare

Returns an Observable that mirrors the source Observable, but will call a specified function when it's being subscribed to.

prepare<T>(callback: () => void): (source: Observable<T>) => Observable<T>

callback: Function to be called when source is being subscribed to.

Example

const source = of("value").pipe(prepare(() => console.log("subscribed")));
source.subscribe(); // 'subscribed'

indicate

Indicates whether the observable is currently loading (meaning subscription is active and it hasn't completed or errored).

indicate<T>(indicator: Subject<boolean>): (source: Observable<T>) => Observable<T>

indicator: Subject as target for indication

Example

@Component({...})
export class UserComponent  {
  loading$ = new Subject<boolean>()

  constructor(private userService: UserService) {}

  create(name = "John Doe"): void {
    this.userService.create(new User(name))
    .pipe(indicate(this.loading$))
    .subscribe()
  }
}
<button (click)="create()">Create User</button>
<div *ngIf="loading$ | async">
  Creating, please wait <loading-indicator></loading-indicator>
</div>

throwForCodes

Maps Angular HTTP status codes to more semantic errors.

throwForCodes<T>(codeErrors: {[status: number]: () => Error}): (source: Observable<T>) => Observable<T>

codeErrors: Object mapping HTTP codes to error providers

Example

this.http.post("/users", newUser).pipe(
  throwForCodes({
    409: () => new Error("User already exists"),
    400: () => new Error("Invalid user")
  })
);

download

Transform HTTP events into an observable download for indicating progress.

download(saver?: (b: Blob) => void): (source: Observable<HttpEvent<Blob>>) => Observable<Download>

saver: Function for saving download when it's done. This could be saveAs from FileSaver.js. When no saver is provided the download won't be saved by this operator.

Example

@Component({...})
export class AppComponent  {

  download$: Observable<Download>

  constructor(private http: HttpClient) {}

  download() {
    this.download$ = this.http.get('/users/123/report', {
                           reportProgress: true,
                           observe: 'events',
                           responseType: 'blob'
                         }).pipe(download(() => saveAs('report.pdf')))
  }
}
<button (click)="download()">Download</button>
<mat-progress-bar
  *ngIf="download$ | async as download"
  [mode]="download.state == 'PENDING' ? 'buffer' : 'determinate'"
  [value]="download.progress"
>
</mat-progress-bar>

upload

Transform HTTP events into an observable upload for indicating progress.

upload<T = unknown>(): (source: Observable<HttpEvent<T>>) => Observable<Upload<T>>

Example

@Component()
export class AppComponent {
  upload$: Observable<Upload>;

  constructor(private http: HttpClient) {}

  upload(files: FileList | null) {
    const file = files?.item(0);
    if (!file) {
      return;
    }
    const data = new FormData();
    data.append("file", file);
    this.upload$ = this.http
      .post("/users/123/avatar", data, {
        reportProgress: true,
        observe: "events"
      })
      .pipe(upload());
  }
}
<input type="file" #fileInput (change)="upload(fileInput.files)" />
<mat-progress-bar
  *ngIf="upload$ | async as upload"
  [mode]="upload.state == 'PENDING' ? 'buffer' : 'determinate'"
  [value]="upload.progress"
>
</mat-progress-bar>

ignoreNotFound

Ignores 404 error responses by instead completing the underlying observable.

Note: You can use defaultIfEmpty to provide a fallback value.

ignoreNotFound(): (source: Observable<T>) => Observable<T>

Example

@Component({...})
export class AppComponent  {
  user$: Observable<User>

  constructor(private http: HttpClient) {}

  ngOnInit() {
    this.user$ = this.http.get<User>('/users/123').pipe(
      ignoreNotFound()
    );
  }
}

noZoneRunner

Runs an observable sequence outside of the Angular zone so that change detection won't be triggered for intermediate, possibly async, operations. This way change detection can only be run when you actually change your view model. Initialize the runner by passing NgZone which you inject into your service or component. Then wrap your observable with the runner.

noZoneRunner(zone: NgZone): (source: Observable<T>) => Observable<T>

Example

@Component({...})
export class AppComponent  {

  constructor(private zone: NgZone,
              private el: ElementRef) {}

  ngOnInit() {
    const runner = noZoneRunner(this.zone)
    runner(fromEvent(this.el.nativeElement, 'mousemove').pipe(
      /* fromEvent & operations are outside zone, won't trigger change-detection */
    )).subscribe(() => {
      /* operations back inside zone, will trigger change-detection */
    })
  }
}

runOutsideZone / runInZone

Moves observable execution in and out of Angular zone.

runOutsideZone(zone: NgZone): (source: Observable<T>) => Observable<T>

runInZone(zone: NgZone): (source: Observable<T>) => Observable<T>

Example

obs$
  .pipe(
    runOutsideZone(this.zone),
    tap(() => console.log(NgZone.isInAngularZone())), // false
    runInZone(this.zone)
  )
  .subscribe(() => console.log(NgZone.isInAngularZone())); // true
