Async Versions of Meteor 2.8 Accounts Functions?

I’m looking for the correct way to remove Promise.await from my usage of Accounts.onCreateUser and Accounts.emailTemplates.verifyEmail .

In Meteor 2.8, are there async versions of these functions? I don’t see references to calling them async yet in the 2.8 Meteor docs.

As an example of what I’m trying to do, I tried this:

Accounts.onCreateUser((options, user) => {
	async function manageAsynOperations(options, user) {
		let args = {}; = user._id;

		args.name_first = options.first_name;
		args.name_last = options.last_name;
		const newEPUser = await connectors.epUserData.create(args);

		if (args.name_first){
			let sql = `UPDATE "epUserDatum"
					   SET "epUserNumber" =  nextval('epUserNumber_seq')
					   WHERE "id" = '${}';`
			console.log("checkpoint# 7");

			let results = await getQueryResults(sql);
		console.log("checkpoint# 8");
		return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
			console.log("checkpoint# 8b");
	console.log("checkpoint# 9");
	user = manageAsynOperations(options, user);
	console.log("checkpoint# 10");
	return user;

I need all the async calls to finish before the function exits. So of course, this did not work, as the function exits (“checkpoint# 10”) before the async calls have finished (“checkpoint# 8”).

Hello there! we have plans on having async methods for user accounts. They will be in 2.9.x Release 2.9 by denihs · Pull Request #12273 · meteor/meteor · GitHub

For now, you can keep using Promise.await but in 3.x they can be replaced by just an await keyword


Thanks very much for this info! That’s going to make this very easy.
