Package for using async ES6 Generators as methods


#1

I just published my package dmihal:generator-method, which allows some cool new functionality for methods.

Here’s a simple example:

Server:

Meteor.generatorMethod('myMethod', async function* test() {
  yield { status: 'start' };
  await wait(1);
  yield { status: 'running', stage: 1 };
  await wait(1);
  yield { status: 'running', stage: 2 };
  await wait(1);
  yield { status: 'running', stage: 3 };
  await wait(1);
  yield { status: 'done' };
});

function wait(seconds) {
  return new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(resolve, seconds * 1000));
}

Client:

async runSomeMethod() {
  const handle = Meteor.callGenerator('myMethod');

  for await (const response of handle) {
    console.log(response);
  }
}

I’d love some feedback, let me know what you think!
