RxJS in Action, Paperback / softback Book


DESCRIPTIONA growing flood of data is aimed at JavaScript applications, and theyneed be ready for it.

As more and more data is received, applicationsmust scale to stay operational.

There's also the problem of latencywhen data has to be fetched from remote locations.

RxJS, or ReactiveExtensions for JavaScript, is a library for transforming, composing,and consuming streams of data.

RxJS combines reactive and functionalprogramming to give an extensible, asynchronous event handlingsystem for JavaScript. RxJS in Action gives readers the development skills they need to createreactive applications with RxJS.

This book is full of theory andpractical examples that build on each other and help readers beginthinking in a reactive manner.

The book begins by teaching thefundamentals of functional programming, and dives in to the basics ofRxJS and what it means to be reactive.

Next, it teaches how to buildreal-world applications with RxJS.

The last part of the book tackles theadvanced topics to take the reader's reactive programming skills to thenext level, as they will learn how to deal with error handling, unittesting, and the role of RxJS when combined with frameworks such asAngular.js or Cycle.js.

Examples in the book use RxJS 5, the latestversion of RxJS built with an eye on performance and simplicity. KEY FEATURES* Full of practical examples using real-world applications* Creating readable, easy-to-understand event processing pipelines* Introduces the fundamentals of functional and reactive programming* Transforms bulky, untestable code into modular, testable expressions* Uses the latest version of RxJSAUDIENCEThis book is for readers who are comfortable writing and buildingapplications in JavaScript. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGYRxJS combines reactive and functional programming to give programmersan extensible, asynchronous event handling system for JavaScript.

RxJS isideal for applications with features that have continuous data flows that haveto fetch and combine multiple pieces of remote data, auto-complete textboxes, drag and drop, process user input, and more.
