Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

Async Tools

npm version Build Status Coverage Status

This is a collection of utility functions for working with async/await code.

Install

npm install @kev_nz/async-tools

API Usage

Here are the functions provided. Additionally feel free to look at the tests in the project as well.

Delay

The delay method allows you to use wait a number of milliseconds before continuing the exection of your code.

const { delay } = require('@kev_nz/async-tools')

(async () => {
  await delay(100)
  console.info('~100 milliseconds later')
})()

Mapper

Execute an asynchronous mapping function over an array of returning the result.

const { mapper } = require('@kev_nz/async-tools')

(async () => {

  const items = [1, 2, 3]
  const mappedItems = await mapper(items, anAsynchronousFunction)
  // passing in an additional concurrency value specifies the number of async methods executed at a time
  const mappedItemsAgain = await mapper(items, anAsynchronousFunction, 2)
})()

Reducer

Execute asynchronous reducer functions over a starting value.

const { delay, reducer } = require('@kev_nz/async-tools')

const anAsyncFunction = async val => {
  await delay(10)
  return val + 1
}
(async () => {
  const finalValue = await reducer(0,
    anAsyncFunction,
    anAsyncFunction,
    anAsyncFunction
  )
  //finalValue 3
})()

Each

Execute an asynchronous function over an array one item at a time.

const { each } = require('@kev_nz/async-tools')

(async () => {
  const items = [1, 2, 3]
  const [first, second, third] = await each(items, anAsyncFunction)
})()

Composer

Take number of functions and compose them together.

const { composer } = require('@kev_nz/async-tools')

const anAsyncFunction = async val => {
  await delay(10)
  return val + 1
}
const anotherAsyncFunction = async val => {
  await delay(10)
  return val + 2
}

(async () => {
  const asyncChain = composer(
    anAsyncFunction,
    anotherAsyncFunction,
    anAsyncFunction
  )
  const finalValue = await asyncChain(0)
  //finalValue 4
})()

Holder

When used with composer it lets you pass additional parameters to a function in the composed.

const { composer, holder } = require('@kev_nz/async-tools')

const anAsyncFunction = async val => {
  await delay(10)
  return val + 1
}
const anotherAsyncFunction = async (val, secondValue) => {
  await delay(10)
  return val + secondValue
}

(async () => {
  const asyncChain = composer(
    anAsyncFunction,
    holder(anotherAsyncFunction, 3),
    anAsyncFunction
  )
  const finalValue = await asyncChain(0)
  //finalValue 5
})()

Timeout

Take number of functions and compose them together.

const { timeout } = require('@kev_nz/async-tools')

(async () => {
  const result = await timeout(() => thingThatIsLongRunning())

})()

Do While

Execute an async function while a condition is true

const { doWhile } = require('@kev_nz/async-tools')

(async () => {
  const results = await doWhile(async () => {
    await asyncFunction()
  }, () => something === true)
})()

While Do

While a condition is true execute an async function

const { whileDo } = require('@kev_nz/async-tools')

(async () => {
  const results = await whileDo(
    () => something === true),
    async () => {
      await asyncFunction()
    })
})()
