A small embeddable Promise polyfill
This is a tiny (0.6kb gzipped, 1.5kb minified) Promise implementation meant for embedding in other projects and use as a standalone polyfill. It supports the full Promise API specification and passes the official Promises/A+ test suite.
The constructor is called with a single function argument.
var promise =resolve'hello';;
Instances of a Promise have two methods available:
then method is used to add callbacks for when the promise is resolved or rejected.
promisethenconsole.log'value is' x;console.log'reason is' r;;
catch method is used the catch rejected promises in a more convenient way.
promisecatchconsole.log'reason is' r;;
Both methods return a new Promise that can be used for chaining.
The Promise class also has four class methods:
reject methods are a convenient way of creating already settled promises:
var resolved = Promiseresolve'hello';var rejected = Promisereject'bye';
race method can be used to "race" two or more promises against each other. The returned promises is settled with the result of the first promise that settles.
// first will be resolved with 'hello'var first = PromiseracesetTimeoutresolve'world';1000;Promiseresolve'hello';
all method waits for all promises given to it to resolve and then resolves the promise with the result of all of them.
// all is settles with ['hello', 'world']var all = PromiseallPromiseresolve'hello' Promiseresolve'world';
grunt test task to run all the tests. You can optionally pass the
This implementation uses Closure Compiler's advanced optimization mode to make the resulting file size as small as possible. If you want to embed this library into your project you can also benefit from Closure Compiler's dead code elimination to remove methods that you are not using. If you want to use Promis this way, you'll need to copy
src/promise.js into your project and
goog.require the implementation. Unlike the standalone file, the
src/promise.js file by itself does not export anything to the global namespace. Instead you should the
lang.Promise namespace to instantiate a Promise.
googrequire'lang.Promise';var promise =resolve'hello';;
