When will Meteor get async/await support?


#1

Iā€™m wondering when Meteor will be able to use async/await instead of fibers? I remember some mentions of a branch that had some promise based conversions for different core things.

Is the holdup on async/await support in Babel or promise support in core?

I think it would be really slick to do this on the client/server :smiley:

async updateStuff() {
  updateCount = await Posts.updateAsync(...);

  try {
    data = await Meteor.callAsync('getSome');
  } catch (e) {
    trackError(e);
  }
}
