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 🙏

The Interactive Extensions for JavaScript (IxJS)

Build Status Build status npm version Join the chat at https://gitter.im/ReactiveXIxJS/

IxJS is a set of libraries to compose synchronous and asynchronous collections and Array#extras style composition in JavaScript

The Interactive Extensions for JavaScript (IxJS) brings the Array#extras combinators to iterables, generators, async iterables and async generators. With the introduction of the Symbol.iterator and generators in ES2015, and subsequent introduction of Symbol.asyncIterator and async generators, it became obvious we need an abstraction over these data structures for composition, querying and more.

IxJS unifies both synchronous and asynchronous pull-based collections, just as RxJS unified the world of push-based collections. RxJS is great for event-based workflows where the data can be pushed at the rate of the producer, however, IxJS is great at I/O operations where you as the consumer can pull the data when you are ready.

Install IxJS from npm

npm install ix

(also read about how we package IxJS below)

Iterable

The Iterable class a way to create and compose synchronous collections much like Arrays, Maps and Sets in JavaScript using the Array#extras style using the familiar methods you are used to like map, filter, reduce and more. We can use the for ... of statements to iterate our collections.

// ES
import { from } from 'ix/iterable';
import { filter, map } from 'ix/iterable/operators';

// CommonJS
const from = require('ix/iterable').from;
const { filter, map } = require('ix/iterable/operators');

const source = function* () {
  yield 1;
  yield 2;
  yield 3;
  yield 4;
};

const results = from(source()).pipe(
  filter(x => x % 2 === 0),
  map(x => x * x)
);

for (let item of results) {
  console.log(`Next: ${item}`);
}

// Next 4
// Next 16

In addition, we also supply a forEach so it's your choice for which to use.

// ES
import { from } from 'ix/iterable';
import { filter, map } from 'ix/iterable/operators';

// CommonJS
const from = require('ix/asynciterable').from;
const { filter, map } = require('ix/asynciterable/operators');

const source = function* () {
  yield 1;
  yield 2;
  yield 3;
  yield 4;
};

const results = from(source()).pipe(
  filter(x => x % 2 === 0),
  map(x => x * x)
);

results
  .forEach(item => {
    console.log(`Next: ${item}`);
  });
// Next 4
// Next 16

Instead of bringing in the entire library for Iterable, we can pick and choose which operators we want, for bundling concerns and add them directly to the Iterable prototype.

// ES
import { IterableX as Iterable } from 'ix/iterable';
import 'ix/add/iterable/of';
import 'ix/add/iterable-operators/map';

// CommonJS
const Iterable = require('ix/iterable').IterableX;
require('ix/add/iterable/of');
require('ix/add/iterable-operators/map');

const results = Iterable.of(1,2,3)
  .map(x => x + '!!');

The Iterable object implements the iterator pattern in JavaScript by exposing the [Symbol.iterator] method which in turn exposes the Iterator class. The iterator yields values by calling the next() method which returns the IteratorResult class.

interface Iterable<T> {
  [Symbol.iterator](): Iterator<T>;
}

interface Iterator<T> {
  next(value?: any): IteratorResult<T>;
  return?(value?: any): IteratorResult<T>;
  throw?(e?: any): IteratorResult<T>;
}

interface IteratorResult<T> {
  value: T;
  done: Boolean;
}

AsyncIterable

The AsyncIterable object is based off the ECMAScript Proposal for Asynchronous Iterators. This would allow us to create asynchronous collections of Promises and be able to use such methods as the map, filter, reduce and other operators we can import. Much like with the Iterable object where we can iterate through our collections, we can use for await ... of instead which allows us to iterate over the asynchronous collection.

// ES
import { from } from 'ix/asynciterable';
import { filter, map } from 'ix/asynciterable/operators';

// CommonJS
const from = require('ix/asynciterable').from;
const { filter, map } = require('ix/asynciterable/operators');

const source = async function* () {
  yield 1;
  yield 2;
  yield 3;
  yield 4;
};

const results = from(source()).pipe(
  filter(async x => x % 2 === 0),
  map(async x => x * x)
);

for await (let item of results) {
  console.log(`Next: ${item}`);
}

// Next 4
// Next 16

Alternatively, we can use the built-in forEach and catch should there be any errors:

// ES
import { from } from 'ix/asynciterable';
import { filter, map } from 'ix/asynciterable/operators';

// CommonJS
const from = require('ix/asynciterable').from;
const { filter, map } = require('ix/asynciterable/operators');

const source = async function* () {
  yield 1;
  yield 2;
  yield 3;
  yield 4;
};

const results = from(source()).pipe(
  filter(async x => x % 2 === 0),
  map(async x => x * x)
);

results
  .forEach(item => {
    console.log(`Next: ${item}`);
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.log(`Error ${err}`);
  });

for await (let item of results) {
  console.log(`Next: ${item}`);
}

// Next 4
// Next 16

Instead of bringing in the entire library for AsyncIterable, we can pick and choose which operators we want, for bundling concerns directly to the AsyncIterable prototype.

// ES
import { AsyncIterableX as AsyncIterable } from 'ix/asynciterable';
import 'ix/add/async-iterable/of';
import 'ix/add/asynciterable-operators/map';

// CommonJS
const AsyncIterable = require('ix/asynciterable').AsyncIterableX;
require('ix/add/asynciterable-operators/map');

const results = AsyncIterable.of(1,2,3)
  .map(x => x + '!!');

The AsyncIterable class implements the async iterator pattern in JavaScript by exposing the [Symbol.asyncIterator] method which in turn exposes the AsyncIterator class. The iterator yields values by calling the next() method which returns a Promise which resolves a IteratorResult class.

interface AsyncIterable<T> {
  [Symbol.asyncIterator](): AsyncIterator<T>;
}

interface AsyncIterator<T> {
  [Symbol.asyncIterator](): AsyncIterator<T>;
  next(value?: any): Promise<IteratorResult<T>>;
  return?(value?: any): Promise<IteratorResult<T>>;
  throw?(e?: any): Promise<IteratorResult<T>>;
}

interface IteratorResult<T> {
  value: T;
  done: Boolean;
}

Converting from Iterable to AsyncIterable

Using IxJS, you can easily go from an Iterable to an AsyncIterable using a number of methods. First, we can use the from function, either as a standalone or on the Ix.AsyncIterable object. The from method accepts a standard Iterable, Generator, and Iterator of Promises, or even another AsyncIterable.

import { from } from 'ix/asynciterable/from';
import { map } from 'ix/asynciterable/operators';

const xs = [1, 2, 3, 4];
const mapped = from(xs).pipe(
  map(async (item, index) => item * index)
);

for await (let item of mapped) {
  console.log(`Next: ${item}`);
}

// Next 0
// Next 2
// Next 6
// Next 12

In addition, you can use the specialized async methods that are suffixed with Async, such as mapAsync, filterAsync, flatMapAsync amongst others. These functions accept async functions which allow you to return a Promise as the result.

import { mapAsync } from 'ix/iterable/mapasync';

const xs = [1, 2, 3, 4];
const mapped = mapAsync(xs, async (item, index) => item * index);

for await (let item of mapped) {
  console.log(`Next: ${item}`);
}

// Next 0
// Next 2
// Next 6
// Next 12

Packaging

IxJS is written in TypeScript, but the project is compiled to multiple JS versions and common module formats. The base IxJS package includes all the compilation targets for convenience, but if you're conscientious about your node_modules footprint, don't worry -- we got you. The targets are also published under the @reactivex namespace:

npm install @reactivex/ix-ts # TypeScript target
npm install @reactivex/ix-es5-cjs # ES5 CommonJS target
npm install @reactivex/ix-es5-esm # ES5 ESModules target
npm install @reactivex/ix-es5-umd # ES5 UMD target
npm install @reactivex/ix-es2015-cjs # ES2015 CommonJS target
npm install @reactivex/ix-es2015-esm # ES2015 ESModules target
npm install @reactivex/ix-es2015-umd # ES2015 UMD target
npm install @reactivex/ix-esnext-cjs # ESNext CommonJS target
npm install @reactivex/ix-esnext-esm # ESNext ESModules target
npm install @reactivex/ix-esnext-umd # ESNext UMD target

Why we package like this

The JS community is a diverse group with a varied list of target environments and tool chains. Publishing multiple packages accommodates projects of all types. Friends targeting the latest JS runtimes can pull in the ESNext + ESM build. Friends needing wide browser support and small download size can use the UMD bundle, which has been run through Google's Closure Compiler with advanced optimizations.

If you think we missed a compilation target and it's a blocker for adoption, please open an issue. We're here for you ❤️.
