NodeJS Bluebird Promises

Converting nodeback library to Promises

const Promise = require('bluebird'),
 fs = require('fs')
// now you can use promise based methods on 'fs' with the Async suffix
fs.readFileAsync('file.txt').then(contents => {
}).catch(err => {
 console.error('error reading', err)

Functional Promises

Example of map:

Promise.resolve([ 1, 2, 3 ]).map(el => {
 return Promise.resolve(el * el) // return some async operation in real world

Example of filter:

Promise.resolve([ 1, 2, 3 ]).filter(el => {
 return Promise.resolve(el % 2 === 0) // return some async operation in real world

Example of reduce:

Promise.resolve([ 1, 2, 3 ]).reduce((prev, curr) => {
 return Promise.resolve(prev + curr) // return some async operation in real world

Coroutines (Generators)

const promiseReturningFunction = Promise.coroutine(function* (file) {
 const data = yield fs.readFileAsync(file) // this returns a Promise and resolves to the file
 return data.toString().toUpperCase()
