    vo-task

    Wraps data.task around vO async function

    NPM

    Build status semantic-release

    Install and use

    npm install --save vo-task
    const voTask = require('vo-task')
    

    Use

    Suppose you have a plain function, like add(a, b) { return a + b }. You can convert this function into a Task-returning function

    function add(a, b) { return a + b }
    const makeTask = voTask(add)
    const addTask = makeTask(2, 3)
    // nothing has been executed so far

    Or you have a promise-returning function that you want to convert into a Task-returning function

    function addAsync(a, b) {
      return Promise.resolve(+ b)
    }
    const makeTask = voTask(addAsync)
    const addTask = makeTask(2, 3)
    // nothing has been executed so far

    Or any other asynchronous function (like generators, callbacks, etc - see vo docs for all supported types). Then you can combine the tasks into longer tasks before executing anything. The original function only runs when you call task.fork(onError, onSuccess) method.

    addTask.fork(console.error, function (result) {
      console.log('add result', result)
    })

    vo-task makes longer chains across multiple async styles easy.
