rx tutorial about Combine Values with RxJS Operator zip

Combine Values with RxJS Operator zip

5:10 rx PRO

CombineLatest and withLatestFrom are both AND-style combination operators. In this lesson, we will learn about zip, our last AND-style combinator. It uses the n-th value of each member Observable to produce the n-th output value.

rx tutorial about Control the Output of Values with RxJS Operator withLatestFrom

Control the Output of Values with RxJS Operator withLatestFrom

4:02 rx PRO

Operator combineLatest is not the only AND-style combinator. In this lesson we will explore withLatestFrom, another AND-style combination operator, and how it works essentially as map() operator, with some combination properties.

rx tutorial about Join Values from Multiple Observables with RxJS combineLatest

Join Values from Multiple Observables with RxJS combineLatest

4:21 rx PRO

While merge is an OR-style combination operator, combineLatest is an AND-style combination operator. This lesson explains what AND-style combination means, and how you can join values from two or more Observables in a formula.

rx tutorial about Merge Values in Parallel with RxJS Operator merge

Merge Values in Parallel with RxJS Operator merge

3:57 rx PRO

In the category of combination operators, concat executes Observables sequentially, while merge executes them in parallel. This lesson will teach you how the merge operator is an OR-style combination operator that blends two or more Observables together.

rx tutorial about Prepend/Append Data with RxJS Operators concat and startWith

Prepend/Append Data with RxJS Operators concat and startWith

6:22 rx PRO

Some Observables may complete, and we may want to append another Observable to the one which just completed. This lesson teaches you how to use the concat() operator for either appending or prepending, and how the shortcut operator startWith() is an easy way of prepending values to an Observable.

rx tutorial about Filter Events with RxJS Operators takeLast and last

Filter Events with RxJS Operators takeLast and last

3:10 rx PRO

Operators take(), skip(), and first() all refer to values emitted in the beginning of an Observable execution. In this lesson we will see similar operators which refer instead to the end of an Observable execution, such as takeLast().

rx tutorial about Filter Events with RxJS Operators take, first, and skip

Filter Events with RxJS Operators take, first, and skip

2:51 rx PRO

There are more operators in the filtering category besides filter(). This lesson will teach how take(), first(), and skip() are simply operators to ignore or pass a certain amount of events from the source Observable.

rx tutorial about Filter Events  Based on a Predicate with RxJS filter

Filter Events Based on a Predicate with RxJS filter

2:06 rx PRO

through a predicate function that tells what is the criteria to pass or reject an event.
This lesson introduces filter: an operator that allows us to let only certain events pass, while ignoring others.

rx tutorial about Inspect the Behavior of Operators with RxJS do

Inspect the Behavior of Operators with RxJS do

4:25 rx PRO

inspect the behavior of other operators
We just saw map which is a transformation operator. There are a couple of categories of operators, such as filtering, combination, flattening, etc. One of these categories is the utility operators. The most important utility operator is do, useful for debugging.

rx tutorial about Use RxJS mapTo and map to Transform Values Emitted by Observables

Use RxJS mapTo and map to Transform Values Emitted by Observables

3:34 rx PRO

transforming the values emitted by observables.
We made our first operator called multiplyBy, which looks a bit useful, but in practice we don't need it because it's too specific: it only does simple multiplication on numbers. In this lesson we will see how the map() operator is useful for any calculation on delivered values.

rx tutorial about Use Marble Diagrams to Understand RxJS Operators

Use Marble Diagrams to Understand RxJS Operators

4:29 rx PRO

There are many operators available, and in order to understand them we need to have a simple way of communicating how they transform a source Observable into a result Observable over time. To show this we use Marble Diagrams to easily explain what is happening. Throughout this course we are going to see the so-called marble diagrams.

rx tutorial about Understand RxJS Operators

Understand RxJS Operators

5:38 rx

We have covered the basics of what is Observable.create, and other creation functions. Now lets finally dive into operators, which are the focus of this course. We will see how operators are simple pure functions attached to the Observable type.

rx tutorial about Observables are the foundation in RxJS

Observables are the foundation in RxJS

0:54 rx PRO

Let's conclude this course by reviewing what an Observable is: a way of representing many values being delivered in push-style from a lazy producer to a consumer. Let's also see how the Observable alone is not everything in RxJS. It serves as the foundation to operators, which are the most useful feature of RxJS.

rx tutorial about Return Subscriptions from the Subscribe Function in RxJs

Return Subscriptions from the Subscribe Function in RxJs

3:14 rx PRO

So far, when writing these subscribe functions, we haven't returned anything. It is possible return an unsubscribe function from a subscribe function. In this lesson we will see how to allow observers to subscribe and unsubscribe from an Observable.

rx tutorial about Understand the RxJS create Operator

Understand the RxJS create Operator

3:03 rx PRO

We have been using Observable.create() a lot in previous lessons, so let's take a closer look how does it work.

rx tutorial about Set Intervals with RxJS interval and timer Operators

Set Intervals with RxJS interval and timer Operators

4:11 rx PRO

It is quite common to need an Observable that ticks periodically, for instance every second or every 100 miliseconds. We will learn about operators interval() and timer(), both of which are similar to setInterval() in JavaScript.

rx tutorial about Combine empty, never, and throw Operators with Observables in RxJS

Combine empty, never, and throw Operators with Observables in RxJS

2:48 rx PRO

This lesson introduces operators empty(), never(), and throw(), which despite being plain and void of functionality, are very useful when combining with other Observables.

rx tutorial about Convert DOM and Node.js Streams to RxJS Observables with fromEvent

Convert DOM and Node.js Streams to RxJS Observables with fromEvent

3:49 rx PRO

Besides converting arrays and promises to Observables, we can also convert other structures to Observables.

This lesson teaches how we can convert any addEventHandler or removeEventHandler API to Observables. We will see how fromEvent does just that.

rx tutorial about Convert JavaScript Values to RxJS Observables

Convert JavaScript Values to RxJS Observables

3:41 rx PRO

The of() operator essentially converted a list of arguments to an Observable. Since arrays are often how we structure list of things in JavaScript, we should have a way of transforming arrays into Observables.

This lesson teaches how you can convert from Arrays to Observables, from Promises to Observables, and from Iterators to Observables. We will look at the API RxJS has for doing that: from, fromPromise, and fromArray.

rx tutorial about Deliver Synchronous Values with the RxJS of() Operator

Deliver Synchronous Values with the RxJS of() Operator

2:06 rx PRO

RxJS is a lot about the so-called "operators". We will learn most of the important operators, one by one. In this lesson, we will see our first creation operator: of().

If you want to deliver synchronous values in the sequence, you use of() instead of writing boilerplate.

rx tutorial about Perform an Action on Completion with  RxJS Observables

Perform an Action on Completion with RxJS Observables

1:48 rx PRO

The Observer object has the functions next() and error(). In this lesson we will see the other (and last) function available on observers, complete(), and its purpose.

rx tutorial about Throw Errors with RxJS Observables

Throw Errors with RxJS Observables

1:39 rx PRO

Whenever we are writing code, we need to remember that things may go wrong. If an error happens in a function, that error will be thrown. Errors can also happen in Observables.

In this lesson we will see what the API is for throwing and catching Errors with Observables.

rx tutorial about Push Values from Observables in RxJS

Push Values from Observables in RxJS

3:21 rx PRO

Observables are almost like functions, but allow you to return many values. There is another concept in JavaScript (ES6), called Generator Functions, which do something very similar.

In this lesson we will see what Observables and Generators have in common, and how they differ.

rx tutorial about Return Multiple Values from Observables in RxJS

Return Multiple Values from Observables in RxJS

6:43 rx PRO

This lesson introduces the concept of an Observable. We will see how similar it behaves to a function and what is the fundamental difference between them.

rx tutorial about Basic DOM Rendering with Subscribe

Basic DOM Rendering with Subscribe

1:06 rx PRO

While frameworks like Angular 2 and CycleJS provides great ways to update the DOM and handle subscriptions for you, this lesson shows how you can still do basic subscribe blocks and manually update the DOM on your own.

rx tutorial about Resubscribing to a Stream with Repeat

Resubscribing to a Stream with Repeat

2:04 rx PRO

When you complete a stream, there’s no way to restart it, you must resubscribe. This lesson shows how repeat comes in handy to resubscribe after a stream has completed.

rx tutorial about Refactoring CombineLatest to WithLatestFrom

Refactoring CombineLatest to WithLatestFrom

2:17 rx PRO

This lesson shows why it’s preferable to using withLatestFrom instead of combineLatest in certain scenarios.

2:54 rx PRO

This lesson recaps everything we’ve covered about building a timer stream, and input stream, and how we’ve combined all their parts together.

rx tutorial about Logging a Stream with Do

Logging a Stream with Do

1:34 rx PRO

To help understand your stream, you’ll almost always want to log out some the intermediate values to see how it has progressed during its lifespan. This lesson teaches you how to use do to log values in the middle of the stream without having an impact on the rest of the stream.

rx tutorial about Handling a Complete Stream with Reduce

Handling a Complete Stream with Reduce

1:21 rx PRO

When a stream has completed, you often need to evaluate everything that has happened while the stream was running. This lesson covers how to use reduce to collect values and total up a “score” of this simple game.

rx tutorial about Completing a Stream with TakeWhile

Completing a Stream with TakeWhile

1:19 rx PRO

When you need to total up everything that has happened in your stream, you need to a way to tell your stream that it is “done”. This lesson covers how to use takeWhile to complete a stream.

rx tutorial about Adding Conditional Logic with Filter

Adding Conditional Logic with Filter

1:01 rx PRO

Often you only want values to proceed through your stream if they meet certain criteria, just as if you were using an if statement in plain JavaScript. This lesson shows you how to use filter on your stream to only push the values that you need through your stream.

rx tutorial about Combining Streams with CombineLatest

Combining Streams with CombineLatest

3:08 rx PRO

Two streams often need to work together to produce the values you’ll need. This lesson shows how to use an input stream and an interval stream together and push an object with both values through the stream.

rx tutorial about Getting Input Text with Map

Getting Input Text with Map

1:46 rx PRO

By default, Inputs will push input events into the stream. This lesson shows you how to use map to convert the input event into the text you actually want.

rx tutorial about Refactoring Composable Streams in RxJS

Refactoring Composable Streams in RxJS

4:44 rx PRO

Refactoring streams in RxJS is mostly moving pieces of smaller streams around. This lessons demonstrates a simple refactoring by requiring the StopWatch to be more configurable.

rx tutorial about Handling Multiple Streams with Merge

Handling Multiple Streams with Merge

2:59 rx PRO

You often need to handle multiple user interactions set to different streams. This lesson shows hows Observable.merge behaves like a "logical OR" to have your stream handle one interaction OR another.

rx tutorial about Changing Behavior with MapTo

Changing Behavior with MapTo

2:32 rx PRO

You often need streams to trigger different behaviors on the data based on which streams triggers. This lessons shows how to use mapTo to pass functions into the scan operator and have completed control over you data.

rx tutorial about Displaying Initial Data with StartWith

Displaying Initial Data with StartWith

1:06 rx PRO

You often need to render out data before you stream begins from a click or another user interaction. This lessons shows how to use startWith to set the initial output before you trigger your stream.

rx tutorial about Updating Data with Scan

Updating Data with Scan

2:10 rx PRO

You often need to update the data flowing through the stream with custom logic based on what you need to output. This lesson covers how to use scan for collecting and updating the outputs as your stream progresses.

rx tutorial about Stopping a Stream with TakeUntil

Stopping a Stream with TakeUntil

4:10 rx PRO

Observables often need to be stopped before they are completed. This lesson shows how to use takeUntil to stop a running timer. Then we use the starting stream and the stopping stream together to create a simple stopwatch.

rx tutorial about Starting a Stream with SwitchMap

Starting a Stream with SwitchMap

5:48 rx

As developers, we tend to carry over ideas from past experience and try to reapply them to something new. This lesson teaches you about why you should usually favor switchMap over subscribe and why thinking about subscribe as an event handler can lead to problems.

rx tutorial about Using Observable.create for fine-grained control

Using Observable.create for fine-grained control

3:55 rx PRO

Sometimes, the helper methods that RxJS ships with such as fromEvent, fromPromise etc don't always provide the exact values you want & you end up having to do extra work to force them into the shape you require. For more fine-grained control you can use Observable.create which allows you to project only the values which matter to you.

rx tutorial about Reacting to multiple inputs using RxJS's combineLatest

Reacting to multiple inputs using RxJS's combineLatest

7:36 rx PRO

There are certain situations in which you’ll want access to the latest values from multiple Observables whenever any one of them produces a value. This is exactly what combineLatest was designed for, and in this lesson we’ll use it to build up an image url that requires values from 3 different inputs - triggered every time any one of them change.

rx tutorial about Overview of Cycle.js

Overview of Cycle.js

2:52 rx

This lesson shows what can be learned next as a continuation of this course, and gives a recap on the core concepts: main for pure logic, drivers for side effects, run() to connect main and drivers, sources for read effects, sinks for write effects, and nesting Cycle.js apps to work as components.

rx tutorial about Export Values from Components through Sinks in Cycle.js

Export Values from Components through Sinks in Cycle.js

3:18 rx

Our app is not yet a BMI calculator, because it only has two sliders, but doesn't show the calculated BMI number. In this lesson we will learn how to export any stream from a child component and use it in the parent component, in order to display the BMI calculation on the DOM.

rx tutorial about Isolate Component Instances in Cycle.js

Isolate Component Instances in Cycle.js

4:26 rx

We added classNames to pre-processing and post-processing steps when calling the LabeledSlider, in order to instances independent of each other. It would be better if we could hide these steps away. This lesson introduces the isolate() helper function to achieve that.

rx tutorial about Use Multiple Independent Instances of a Cycle.js Component

Use Multiple Independent Instances of a Cycle.js Component

5:48 rx

Once we have a labeled slider component inside the main function, we should be able to create another labeled slider. This lesson teaches how to accomplish that, and make sure those two instances work independently of each other.
