Shared read locks and exclusive write locks: Concurrent access for read-only operations, exclusive access for write operations.
import Lock from 'shared-exclusive-lock' const lock = new Lock() // Multiple read locks at the same time: const releaseReadLock1 = await lock.readLock() const releaseReadLock2 = await lock.readLock() // Write lock is granted as soon as all existing read locks have been released: lock.writeLock().then((releaseWriteLock) => releaseWriteLock()) // As soon as a write lock is queued, no further read locks are granted in parallel: lock.readLock().then((releaseReadLock3) => releaseReadLock3()) releaseReadLock1() releaseReadLock2() // Sequence: // 1. Receive first read lock. // 2. Receive second read lock. // 3. Release first read lock. // 4. Release second read lock. // 5. Receive write lock. // 6. Release write lock. // 7. Receive third read lock. // 8. Release third read lock.
