RxJS: The Good Parts
RxJS: The Good Parts by John Vall Description: We have a lot of ways to handle asynchronous data in JavaScript: promises, the async library, async/await, and another new kid on the block: RxJS. But what makes RxJS such a compelling library, after getting so much attention from technologies like Angular and redux-observable? Its full name is Reactive Extensions for JavaScript, and features documentation that describes its operators like this: Rx.Observable.prototype.flatMapLatest(selector, [thisArg]) Projects each element of an observable sequence into a new sequence of observable sequences by incorporating the element's index and then transforms an observable sequence of observable sequences into an observable sequence producing values only from the most recent observable sequence. Yikes, they might as well have written this in Greek. But not to worry, John V will break down why this library is helpful, what makes it different, and explain the parts you'll need to know for most projects. All in plain English!
