sync-p

sync-p

A tiny sync promise lib

features

sync-p is 52 lines of code, but handles the majority of the promise spec. Some of the spec is intentionally avoided, e.g.

  • sync-p is capable of returning synchronously, i.e. it does not defer everything
  • to avoid bloat sync-p assumes that truthy args passed to .then are functions (strict adherence involves explicitly handling cases like .then(5) ...like, just don't do that, that's not the api)
  • it does not throw if a promise is rejected and no reject handler is attached

installation

npm install sync-p

usage

var Promise = require('sync-p')
 
var result
var p = new Promise(function (resolve, reject) {
    // resolve immediately 
    resolve(true)
  })
  .then(null, null)
  .then(function (val) {
    result = val
  })
console.log(result) // true 
 
new Promise(function (resolve, reject) {
  throw 'error'
})
.catch(function (err) {
  console.log(err) // 'error' 
})
 
var p = new Promise(function (resolve, reject) {
  setTimeout(function () {
    resolve(true)
  }, 0)
})
.then(onSuccess, onError)
 
var all = require('sync-p/all')
 
var p = all([1, 2, promise3]).then(function (val) {
  console.log(val) // [1, 2, 3] 
})
 
// ... etc. 

extra

var Promise = require('sync-p/extra')
 
// includes all, resolve, reject and defer 
var promise = Promise.all(array)
var resolved = Promise.resolve(123)
var rejected = Promise.reject(321)
var deferred = Promise.defer()

run tests

npm test
