Understanding Promises in JavaScript

What is Promise?

Promise represents the result of an asynchronous operation. You can think of it as a placeholder for a result that you’ll eventually receive.

Why Promise?

To solve the problem of callback hell.

Callback hell is any code where the use of function callbacks in asynchronous code becomes difficult to follow. Whenever we have loads of nested callbacks, code becomes harder to read, test, and debug. This also leads to the pyramid of doom.

Here is an example of callback hell.

function a() {
  setTimeout(() => {
    setTimeout(() => {
      setTimeout(() => {
        setTimeout(() => {
          setTimeout(() => {
            //do something
          }, 1000);
        }, 1000);
      }, 1000);
    }, 1000);
  }, 1000);
}

JavaScript Promise: Methods Comparison

Introduction

Promises in JavaScript are used to handle asynchronous operations by keeping track of whether a certain event has happened. If that certain event has taken place, it determines what happens next. Promises return a value which is either a resolved value or a reason why it’s rejected. They can handle multiple asynchronous operations easily and they provide better error handling than callbacks and events.

Callback: A callback is a function that is passed into another function as an argument to be executed later.

Events: Events provide a dynamic interface to a WebPage and are connected to elements in the Document Object Model(DOM), for example: onclick(), onmouseover() etc.

A Promise has four states

Pending: Before the event has happened, the promise is in the pending state.

Settled: Once the event has happened it is then in the settled state.

Fulfilled: Action related to the promise has succeeded.

Rejected: Action related to the promise has failed.

The essential JavaScript concepts that you should understand

As a JavaScript developer of any level, you need to understand its foundational concepts and some of the new ideas that help us developing code. In this article, we are going to review 16 basic concepts. So without further ado, let’s get to it.

Promise.allSettled() vs Promise.all()

Promise.allSetlled() is recently introduced in ECMA 2020.
Check out how it is different from Promise.all()

What is JavaScript - Stackfindover - Blog

Who invented JavaScript, how it works, as we have given information about Programming language in our previous article ( What is PHP ), but today we will talk about what is JavaScript, why JavaScript is used The Answers to all such questions and much other information about JavaScript, you are going to get here today. Hope this information will work for you.

Who invented JavaScript?

JavaScript language was invented by Brendan Eich in 1995. JavaScript is inspired by Java Programming Language. The first name of JavaScript was Mocha which was named by Marc Andreessen, Marc Andreessen is the founder of Netscape and in the same year Mocha was renamed LiveScript, and later in December 1995, it was renamed JavaScript which is still in trend.

What is JavaScript?

JavaScript is a client-side scripting language used with HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). JavaScript is an Interpreted / Oriented language called JS in programming language JavaScript code can be run on any normal web browser. To run the code of JavaScript, we have to enable JavaScript of Web Browser. But some web browsers already have JavaScript enabled.

Today almost all websites are using it as web technology, mind is that there is maximum scope in JavaScript in the coming time, so if you want to become a programmer, then you can be very beneficial to learn JavaScript.

JavaScript Hello World Program

In JavaScript, ‘document.write‘ is used to represent a string on a browser.

<script type="text/javascript">
	document.write("Hello World!");
</script>

How to comment JavaScript code?

  • For single line comment in JavaScript we have to use // (double slashes)
  • For multiple line comments we have to use / * – – * /
<script type="text/javascript">

//single line comment

/* document.write("Hello"); */

</script>

A Beginner’s Guide To Promises In JavaScript

Welcome to my post about the JavaScript Promises. I hope it can be helpful since when we start programming it is difficult to enter the context.

Promises are one of the largest tools in the world of JavaScript that helps us to manage future situations in the flow of execution of a program.

The promises originated in the realm of functional programming, generally to handle asynchronous programming. In short, they allow us to define how data that will only be available in the future will be treated, specifying what will be done with that data later.

The promises were introduced in the standard in ES6, the truth is that they have been used for a long time since several libraries had implemented them to solve their needs in a more elegant way.

The Promise object represents the eventual completion or failure of an asynchronous operation and its resulting value.
