promise_map: Promise-aware lapply/map

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Examples

View source: R/utils.R

Description

Similar to base::lapply() or purrr::map, but promise-aware: the .f function is permitted to return promises, and while lapply returns a list, promise_map returns a promise that resolves to a similar list (of resolved values only, no promises).

Usage

1
promise_map(.x, .f, ...)

Arguments

.x

A vector (atomic or list) or an expression object (but not a promise). Other objects (including classed objects) will be coerced by base::as.list.

.f

The function to be applied to each element of .x. The function is permitted, but not required, to return a promise.

...

Optional arguments to .f.

Details

promise_map processes elements of .x serially; that is, if .f(.x[[1]]) returns a promise, then .f(.x[[2]]) will not be invoked until that promise is resolved. If any such promise rejects (errors), then the promise returned by promise_map immediately rejects with that err.

Value

A promise that resolves to a list (of values, not promises).
