Promisify Node

Stable: 0.5.0

Build
Status

Maintained by Tim Branyen @tbranyen.

Wraps Node modules, functions, and methods written in the Node-callback style to return Promises.

Install

npm install promisify-node

Examples

Wrap entire Node modules recursively:

var promisify = require("promisify-node");
var fs = promisify("fs");

// This function has been identified as an asynchronous function so it has
// been automatically wrapped.
fs.readFile("/etc/passwd").then(function(contents) {
  console.log(contents);
});

Wrap a single function:

var promisify = require("promisify-node");

function async(callback) {
  callback(null, true);
}

// Convert the function to return a Promise.
var wrap = promisify(async);

// Invoke the newly wrapped function.
wrap().then(function(value) {
  console.log(value === true);
});

Wrap a method on an Object:

var promisify = require("promisify-node");

var myObj = {
  myMethod: function(a, b, cb) {
    cb(a, b);
  }
};

// No need to return anything as the methods will be replaced on the object.
promisify(myObj);

// Intentionally cause a failure by passing an object and inspect the message.
myObj.myMethod({ msg: "Failure!" }, null).then(null, function(err) {
  console.log(err.msg);
});

Wrap without mutating the original:

var promisify = require("promisify-node");

var myObj = {
  myMethod: function(a, b, cb) {
    cb(a, b);
  }
};

// Store the original method to check later
var originalMethod = myObj.myMethod;

// Now store the result, since the 'true' value means it won't mutate 'myObj'.
var promisifiedObj = promisify(myObj, undefined, true);

// Intentionally cause a failure by passing an object and inspect the message.
promisifiedObj.myMethod({ msg: "Failure!" }, null).then(null, function(err) {
  console.log(err.msg);
});

// The original method is still intact
assert(myObj.myMethod === originalMethod);
assert(promisifiedObj.myMethod !== myObj.myMethod);
