NAME

Promise::AsyncAwait - Async/await with promises

SYNOPSIS

    use Promise::AsyncAwait;

    async sub get_number_plus_1 {
        my $number = await _get_number_p();

        return 1 + $number;
    }

    my $p = get_number_plus_1()->then( sub { say "number: " . shift } );

… and then use whatever mechanism you will for “unrolling” $p.

DESCRIPTION

Future::AsyncAwait implements JavaScript-like async/await semantics for Perl, but it defaults to using CPAN’s Future rather than promises. The two are similar but incompatible.

Use this module for a promise-oriented async/await instead. It’s actually just a shim around Future::AsyncAwait that feeds it configuration options for Promise::XS promises rather than Future. This yields a friendlier (and likely faster!) experience for those more accustomed to JavaScript promises than to CPAN Future.

This should work with most CPAN promise implementations.
