WorkWorkJS

A library that speeds up computation-heavy tasks in JavaScript with multi-threading and Web Workers.

Demo

https://workworkjs.github.io/workworkjs

Using it

Example

var arr = [64, 70, 80];
 
WorkWork.map(arr, function (elem) {
    return fibonacci(elem);
})
.then(function (resultArr) {
    console.log(resultArr);
})
 
// logs the 64th, the 70th, and the 80th fibonacci numbers
 

Installing it

You can get the raw js file here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/workworkjs/workworkjs/master/workwork.js

OR run

npm install workworkjs --save 

and configure your static routing to correctly look into the node_modules folder.

Just put it into your script tag like so:

<script src="workwork.js"></script> 
<!-- or -->
<script src="node_modules/workworkjs/workwork.js"></script>

When should I use this?

WorkWork is best suited for situations where heavy blocking computation would otherwise be necessary. It is not intended to replace the original Array.prototype map and filter but rather to supplement them when heavy computation should be performed on a separate thread.

Example

var arr = [1, 2, 3];
 
WorkWork.map(arr, function (elem) {
    return elem + 1;
})
.then(function (resultArr) {
    console.log(resultArr);
})
 

This is slower than if you just used

Array.prototype.map 

Methods

WorkWork.map(arr, fn)

Takes in an array as the first argument, and a function as the second that returns a modified elem. Works just like the native Array.prototype.map except WorkWork.map returns a promise that must be resolved.

Example

var arr = [50000, 56456, 125694];
 
WorkWork.map(arr, nthPrime)
.then(function (resultArr) {
    console.log(resultArr);
});
 
// logs a new array with the 50,000th, the 56456th, and the 125694th prime numbers

WorkWork.filter(arr, fn)

Takes in an array as the first argument, and a function as the second that returns a true or false. Works just like the native Array.prototype.filter except WorkWork.filter returns a promise that must be resolved.

Example

var arr = [50000, 56456, 125694];
 
WorkWork.map(arr, nthPrime)
.then(function (resultArr) {
    return WorkWork.filter(resultArr, function (elem) {
        return (elem % 2 === 0);
    });
})
.then(function (resultFilter) {
    console.log(resultFilter);
})
 
// logs a new array with only the even prime numbers from before

Can also be used in isolation

Example

var arr = [50000, 56456, 125694];
 
WorkWork.filter(arr, isPrime)
.then(function (resultArr) {
    console.log(resultArr);
})
 
// logs an empty array since none of the elements are prime
