promise library

Unread post by Jan de Lint » 16 Feb 2015 19:46

A promise library makes the sequencing of multythreading, delays, io and the like much more declarative (and thus much more fun 8-) ).
Quite a number of promise libraries is emerging lately. Examples are Q and RSVP.
Would be nice if there were to be an equivalent library in the PFC, or is there already?

No, we do not currently have such a library, but we do work a little with it.

OK, it was just a hint.
I feel such a library could take the sting out of VPcURL with all it's call-backs.
