p-defer

p-defer Build Status

Create a deferred promise

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

Install

$ npm install --save p-defer

Usage

const pDefer = require('p-defer');
 
function delay(ms) {
    const deferred = pDefer();
    setTimeout(deferred.resolve, ms, '🦄');
    return deferred.promise;
}
 
delay(100).then(console.log);
//=> '🦄' 

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

API
