Quick usage guide

Below you can find a quick reference for the most common operations you need to perform to use RDJs.

1- Performing a GET request

// Make a request for all repos 
RDJs.get('https://api.github.com/users/diogenespolanco/repos')
  .then(function (response) {
    console.log(response);
  })
  .catch(function (error) {
    console.log(error);
  });

2- Performing a POST request

// Make a request for a user with a given ID 
RDJs.post('https://api.github.com/authorizations', {
    "scopes":[
       "public_repo"
    ]
  })
  .then(function (response) {
    console.log(response);
  })
  .catch(function (error) {
    console.log(error);
  });

3- Performing a PUT request

// Make a request for a user with a given ID 
RDJs.put('https://api.github.com/user/whatever', data)
  .then(function (response) {
    console.log(response);
  })
  .catch(function (error) {
    console.log(error);
  });

3- Performing a DELETE request

// Make a request for a user with a given ID 
RDJs.delete('https://api.github.com/user/whatever')
  .then(function (response) {
    console.log(response);
  })
  .catch(function (error) {
    console.log(error);
  });

4- Performing a RDJs.all fail-fast behaviour

// Make a request for a user with a given ID 
var p1 = RDJs.get('https://api.github.com/users/diogenespolanco/repos')
.then(function(response) {
  console.log(response);
});
var p2 = RDJs.get('https://api.spotify.com/v1/search?q=mana&type=artist')
.then(function(response) {
  console.log(response);
});
 
 
RDJs.all([p1, p2]).then(values => { 
  console.log("Done!!");
}, reason => {
  console.log(reason)
});

5- Performing a RDJs.trace function returns a operation that is settled the same way as the first passed promise to settle. It resolves or rejects, whichever happens first.

// Make a request for a user with a given ID 
var p1 = RDJs.get('https://api.github.com/users/diogenespolanco/repos')
.then(function(response) {
   console.log("github is normal, so it resolves!!");
});
var p2 = RDJs.get('https://api.spotify.com/v1/search?q=mana&type=artist')
.then(function(response) {
   console.log("spotify is faster, so it resolves!!");
});
 
 
RDJs.trace([p1, p2]).then(values => { 
  console.log("Done trace!!");
}, reason => {
  console.log(reason)
});
