The constructor is called with a single function argument.

var promise = new Promise(function (resolve, reject) {

Instances of a Promise have two methods available: then and catch. The then method is used to add callbacks for when the promise is resolved or rejected.

promise.then(function (x) {
  console.log('value is', x);
}, function (r) {
  console.log('reason is', r);

The catch method is used the catch rejected promises in a more convenient way.

promise.catch(function (r) {
  console.log('reason is', r);

Both methods return a new Promise that can be used for chaining.

The Promise class also has four class methods: resolve, reject, race and all. The resolve and reject methods are a convenient way of creating already settled promises:

var resolved = Promise.resolve('hello');
var rejected = Promise.reject('bye');

The 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 = Promise.race([new Promise(function (resolve) {
  setTimeout(function () {
  }, 1000);
}), Promise.resolve('hello')]);

The 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 = Promise.all([Promise.resolve('hello'), Promise.resolve('world')]);
