    p-defer

    Create a deferred promise

    Don't use this unless you know what you're doing. Prefer the Promise constructor.

    Install

    $ npm install p-defer
    

    Usage

    import pDefer from 'p-defer';
    
    function delay(milliseconds) {
    	const deferred = pDefer();
    	setTimeout(deferred.resolve, milliseconds, '🦄');
    	return deferred.promise;
    }
    
    console.log(await delay(100));
    //=> '🦄'

    The above is just an example. Use delay if you need to delay a promise.

    API

    pDefer()

    Returns an object with a promise property and functions to resolve() and reject().
