Reactive 2015 Lightning Talk Proposal: Pyramids be gone!: ES7 Async Function

This is a proposal for a lightning talk at the Reactive 2015 conference.

NOTE: If you like this, star ⭐️ the Gist - the amount of stars decides whether it makes the cut! You could also Retweet if you want :)

Pyramids be gone!

ES7 Async Functions

JavaScript is getting async functions (or already has them if you count Babel.JS) and with them a way to finally slay the evil pyramid. This new language feature lets you write asynchronous code that almost looks synchronous, while maintaining the same semantics as promises. This lets you shed your .then and .catch boilerplate and escape those nested callbacks in favour of clean, explicit, maintainable code.

A simple mixin for getting state from Flux stores in a React view. An example of how simple it can be. You're probably better off using a full library though...
View StoreWatchMixin.js
"use strict";
var shallowEqual = require('shallow-equals');
// Create a mixin for a component that depends on a store(s) for
// state. Component should define getStateFromStores
module.exports = function StoreWatchMixin(...stores) {
return {
componentDidMount () {
stores.forEach((store) => {
store.addListener('change', this.onStoreChange);

Use flow.js to show type signature for value under cursor whenever the cursor is idle for more than half a second (assumes espresso-mode.el)

Test React Native on the simulator and on a device without editing the code each time!

In the default React Native app scaffolding you have to edit AppDelegate.m to change where it loads the code if you want to test on your device. I use the following snippet to detect if it's being compiled for Debug or Production and for the Simulator or a device. For Production it uses a copy of the code included in the bundle, for Debug on the simualtor it loads from a server on localhost and for Debug on a device it loads from a server on a given IP address.

NOTE: You need to edit YOUR-IP-HERE and change it to the IP to load the code from when in Debug mode on a device. You could use a service like ngrok to make this work from anywhere.

  NSURL *jsCodeLocation;

  // Loading JavaScript code
  #if DEBUG
    // For Debug build load from development server. Start the server from the repository root:
