Promise.allSettled() Pt.2 - it's partly settled!

27 April 2019

This is a follow-up to my first post on the upcoming Promise.allSettled() function, coming soon to a node application near you. 

Earlier today I was greeted by a Pull Request on my first post from GitHub user @j-f1.  


It turns out there is a handy way to add Promise.allSettled() to your apps right now! 🎉.  It's fiendishly simple to use, too.

The core-js npm package

That's right - core-js.  From their README.md, it is exactly what it sounds like:

It is a polyfill of the JavaScript standard library, which supports:
The latest ECMAScript standard.
ECMAScript standard library proposals.
Some WHATWG / W3C standards (cross-platform or closely related ECMAScript).
It is maximally modular: you can easily choose to load only the features you will be using.
It can be used without polluting the global namespace.
It is tightly integrated with babel: this allows many optimizations of core-js import.

Looking further down in the readme, there's a list of supported features in the polyfill:

Promise.allSettled stage 2 proposal

Well hot damn! That'll do it! 

How to use core-js

As @j-f1 indicated, in any project that uses babel as a transpiler, all you need to do is add core-js to your project, and include it at your app's entry point:

First, add the dependency to your project

> yarn add core-js

Then, at your app's entry point (usually something like index.js, or app.js in the root of your project):

import 'core-js';

or, if you want to include just the Promise.allSettled() polyfill, and nothing else, use:

import 'core-js/proposals/promise-all-settled';

That's it! 🍻
