We have used bluebird because it was one of the best libraries for promises. But then promises have gained support in both nodejs and browser. That was the easy catch so we planned to remove it from our code base.
The functions we were using of that library were
Node js ships with
util api which provides same requirement as that of bluebird.
The method works by taking in the common error-first callback style functions and returns a promises.
// Before import Promise from 'bluebird'; const readFile = Promise.promisify(fs.readFile); // After import util from 'util'; const readFile = util.promisify(fs.readFile);
Purpose of this method is to returns a promise that will be resolved with after given milliseconds. Native way to do this was to promisify setTimeout function.
// Before import Promise from 'bluebird'; await Promise.delay(1000); // After import util from 'util'; const setTimeoutAsync = util.promisify(setTimeout); await setTimeoutAsync(null, 1000);
