p-map

Map over promises concurrently

Useful when you need to run promise-returning & async functions multiple times with different inputs concurrently.

This is different from Promise.all() in that you can control the concurrency and also decide whether or not to stop iterating when there's an error.

Install

$ npm install p-map

Usage

const pMap = require('p-map');
const got = require('got');

const sites = [
	getWebsiteFromUsername('https://sindresorhus'), //=> Promise
	'https://ava.li',
	'https://github.com'
];

(async () => {
	const mapper = async site => {
		const {requestUrl} = await got.head(site);
		return requestUrl;
	};

 	const result = await pMap(sites, mapper, {concurrency: 2});

	console.log(result);
	//=> ['https://sindresorhus.com/', 'https://ava.li/', 'https://github.com/']
})();

API

pMap(input, mapper, options?)

Returns a Promise that is fulfilled when all promises in input and ones returned from mapper are fulfilled, or rejects if any of the promises reject. The fulfilled value is an Array of the fulfilled values returned from mapper in input order.

input

Type: Iterable<Promise | unknown>

Iterated over concurrently in the mapper function.

mapper(element, index)

Type: Function

Expected to return a Promise or value.

options

Type: object

concurrency

Type: number (Integer)
Default: Infinity
Minimum: 1

Number of concurrently pending promises returned by mapper.

stopOnError

Type: boolean
Default: true

When set to false, instead of stopping when a promise rejects, it will wait for all the promises to settle and then reject with an aggregated error containing all the errors from the rejected promises.
