    Make synchronous function or generator to support callback api

    code climate standard code style travis build status coverage status dependency status


    npm i make-callback --save
    npm test


    For more use-cases see the tests

    var makeCallback = require('make-callback')
    var JSONParseAsync = makeCallback(JSON.parse)
    JSONParseAsync('{"foo":"bar"}', function (err, json) {
      if (err) {
        return console.error(err)
      //=> {foo: 'bar'}

    You also can make generator that return and yield anything (string, array, object, function, thunk, promise or etc) to support callback api

    var fs = require('mz/fs')
    var makeCallback = require('make-callback')
    function * gen (val) {
      var a = yield 'a'
      var b = yield {b: 'b'}
      var c = yield ['c', 'f']
      var d = yield 123
      var e = yield fs.readFile('./package.json')
      return [a, b, c, d, e, val || 'foobar']
    var genCallback = makeCallback(gen)
    genCallback(function (err, res) {
      if (err) {
        return console.error(err)
      //=> ['a', {b: 'b'}, ['c', 'f'], 123, 'content of package.json',  'foobar']
      //=> 6

    • manage-arguments: Prevents arguments leakage - managing arguments. From Optimization killers by Petka Antonov.
    • handle-arguments: Handles given Arguments object - return separatly last argument (commonly callback) and other arguments as Array. Useful in node-style callback flow.
    • handle-callback: Make promise to have support for callback api, it returns promise in that same time.
    • always-callback: Create callback api for given sync function. Guarantee that given function (sync or async, no matter) will always have callback api and will handle errors correctly.
    • always-thunk: Create thunk from async or sync function. Works like thunkify.
    • always-promise: Create Bluebird Promise from given async or synchronous function. It automatically convert sync functions to async, then to promise.
    • is-es6-generator: Check that given value is Generator
