[a]synchronous functional programming

const { pipe, map, filter } = rubico

const isOdd = number => number % 2 == 1

const asyncSquare = async number => number ** 2

const squaredOdds = pipe([
  filter(isOdd),
  map(asyncSquare),
])

squaredOdds([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]).then(console.log) // [1, 9, 25]

A note from the author

At a certain point in my career, I grew frustrated with the entanglement of my own code. While looking for something better, I found functional programming. I was excited by the idea of functional composition, but disillusioned by the redundancy of effectful types. I started rubico to capitalize on the prior while rebuking the latter. Many iterations since then, the library has grown into something I personally enjoy using, and continue to use to this day.

rubico is founded on the following principles:

  • asynchronous code should be simple
  • functional style should not care about async
  • functional transformations should be composable, performant, and simple to express

When you import this library, you obtain the freedom that comes from having those three points fulfilled. The result is something you may enjoy.

Introduction

rubico is a module of twenty-eight operators for async-enabled functional programming in JavaScript.

const {
  pipe, tap,
  switchCase, tryCatch,
  fork, assign, get, pick, omit,
  map, filter, reduce, transform, flatMap,
  and, or, not, any, all,
  eq, gt, lt, gte, lte,
  thunkify, always,
  curry, __,
} = rubico

These operators act sensibly on a wide range of vanilla JavaScript types to create declarative, extensible, and async-enabled function compositions.

const { pipe, map } = rubico

const toTodosUrl = id => `https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/todos/${id}`

const logTodoByID = pipe([ // fetch a Todo and log it
  toTodosUrl,
  fetch,
  response => response.json(),
  console.log,
])

const todoIDs = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

map(logTodoByID)(todoIDs) // fetch Todos per id of TodoIDs and log them
// { userId: 1, id: 4, title: 'et porro tempora', completed: true }
// { userId: 1, id: 1, title: 'delectus aut autem', completed: false }
// { userId: 1, id: 3, title: 'fugiat veniam minus', completed: false }
// { userId: 1, id: 2, title: 'quis ut nam facilis...', completed: false }
// { userId: 1, id: 5, title: 'laboriosam mollitia...', completed: false }

For different but semanticaly related functionality, rubico exposes additional methods as property functions. For example,

  • map - apply a mapper function concurrently
  • map.pool - apply a mapper function concurrently with a concurrency limit
  • map.series - apply a mapper function serially

For advanced functions, please visit rubico/x. You can find the full method documentation at rubico.land/docs.
