Package description

What is bluebird?

Bluebird is a fully-featured Promise library for JavaScript. It allows for advanced features such as promise chaining, concurrency control, and error handling. It is known for its performance and useful utilities for working with asynchronous operations in JavaScript.

What are bluebird's main functionalities?

Promisification

Converts Node.js callback-style functions to return a Bluebird promise. In this example, the 'fs' module's 'readFile' function is promisified to use promises instead of callbacks.

const Promise = require('bluebird');
const fs = Promise.promisifyAll(require('fs'));

fs.readFileAsync('example.txt', 'utf8').then(contents => {
  console.log(contents);
}).catch(error => {
  console.error('Error reading file', error);
});

Promise Chaining

Allows for chaining multiple asynchronous operations where each step waits for the previous one to complete. Errors can be caught and handled gracefully.

const Promise = require('bluebird');

Promise.resolve(1)
  .then(x => x + 1)
  .then(x => { throw new Error('Something went wrong'); })
  .catch(Error, e => console.error(e.message));

Concurrency Control

Provides utilities to control the concurrency of multiple promises. The 'map' function here runs a maximum of two promises in parallel.

const Promise = require('bluebird');

const tasks = [/* array of functions that return promises */];

Promise.map(tasks, task => task(), { concurrency: 2 })
  .then(results => {
    console.log('All tasks completed', results);
  });

Error Handling

Offers a clean syntax for error handling in promise chains. The 'try' method is used to start a promise chain with error handling.

const Promise = require('bluebird');

Promise.try(() => {
  throw new Error('Something failed');
}).catch(Error, e => {
  console.error('Caught an error:', e.message);
});
