ccnokes / wait-with-abortsignal.js
Last active Sep 11, 2019
Use AbortController to implement custom async task cancelling logic. Expounded upon here:
View wait-with-abortsignal.js
function wait(ms, opts = {}) {
return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
let timerId = setTimeout(resolve, ms);
if (opts.signal) {
// implement aborting logic for our async operation
opts.signal.addEventListener('abort', event => {

Minimal AbortController implementation for node.js that doesn't have to shim DOM stuff
View AbortController.ts
import { EventEmitter } from 'events';
class AbortController {
private events = new EventEmitter();
aborted = false;
signal = {
get aborted() {
return this.aborted;
ccnokes / idObj.ts
Last active Aug 22, 2019
Sometimes in React you need a unique `key` to represent an object's identity. Instead of generating an id when you fetch it from an API or generating an id on the fly or using indexes (both will lead to bugs), you can use this which gives you a stable, unique id for an object. Demo: Demo with React: htt…
View idObj.ts
let map = new WeakMap(); // weakly holds all object refs (works in IE11+)
let n = 0; // global counter for ids
export function idObj(obj: any) {
if (map.has(obj)) {
return map.get(obj);
} else {
let key = String(++n);
map.set(obj, key);
return key;

Convert all stashes to patches in a git repository

git stash show -p stash@{$i} > "stash-$i.patch"
i=$(( $i + 1 ))
ccnokes / Batch.ts
Last active Oct 2, 2019
A class that manages the logic of batching items together within a timeframe and then passing those items to a function. Sandbox:
View Batch.ts
class Deferred<Type> {
promise: Promise<Type>;
// TODO type these
resolve: any;
reject: any;
then: any;
catch: any;
constructor() {
this.promise = new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
ccnokes / SparseList.ts
Created Feb 22, 2019
A data structure that wraps a sparse array. Useful for when you know the total size of a list and need to represent it in its full size, but are lazy loading in sections of it. Sandbox:
View SparseList.ts
class SparseList<T = any> {
private list: T[];
emptySlotsCount: number;
constructor(size: number) {
this.list = new Array(size);
this.emptySlotsCount = size;
get size() {
ccnokes / RICScheduler.ts
Last active Feb 23, 2019
RequestIdleCallback scheduler. Create an instance and use it globally to ensure that tasks are efficiently run in as few requestIdleCallbacks as possible (as described here Sandbox:
View RICScheduler.ts
class RICScheduler {
private queue: { task: () => void, id: number }[] = [];
private running = false;
private nextId = 0;
private ricId;
private id() {
return this.nextId++;
ccnokes / withNgService.tsx
Last active Feb 19, 2019
withNgService HOC for injecting modules from Angular.JS's dependency injector into a React component
View withNgService.tsx
import * as React from 'react';
import hoistStatics from 'hoist-non-react-statics';
declare var angular: any;
let injector;
// NOTE you probably can't run this at the top level of a module because angular takes time to load and bootstrap
export default function getNgService<T = any>(serviceName: string): T {
if (!injector) {
ccnokes / initContext.tsx
Created Feb 1, 2019
A function that returns a React.Context and a mapContextToProps HOC so that you can inject context onto props, like react-redux's `connect` function
View initContext.tsx
import * as React from 'react';
const defaultMapper = (ctx) => ctx
export function initContext<CtxType>() {
const Context = React.createContext<CtxType | null>(null);
function mapContextToProps<Props>(Component: React.ComponentType<Props & CtxType>, mapper: (ctx: CtxType) => any = defaultMapper): React.ComponentType<Props> {
return (props: Props) => (
{(ctx) => <Component {...props} {...mapper(ctx)} />}
You can’t perform that action at this time.
