EVT: A new EventEmitter for Deno ( and every other JavaScript runtimes )

garronej profile image Garrone Joseph Updated on ・1 min read

Disclaimer: Although EVT is a marked improvement over EventEmitter it can't compete in teme of feature scope with RxJS yet.
There are important operators such as swichMap, mergeMap, debounceTime and others that do not have an equivalent in EVT.
However, EVT has two main things going for it already:

  • It allows performing filter, map, and scan in a single operation which makes the code much less verbose and enables typescript to seamlessly infer what is going on.
  • It is more accessible, the API is close to EventEmitter which allows getting started quickly and progressively leverage the more advanced features. Any feedback much appreciated
