How to use Bluebird promise library in the browser

Let me give you a few examples:

A basic one:

Here we have function that upload a file to the server.

function uploadFile(file, uploadId) {

return new Promise(function (resolve, reject) {

var formData = new FormData();

// all though allFiles, upload one file at a time

formData.append('bp', file);
formData.append('uploadId', uploadId);

// console.log(uploadId);

url: '/api/bp-upload/new-bp-file',
data: formData,
processData: false,
contentType: false,
type: 'POST',
success: function(data){
// alert(data);
// console.log(data);
error: function (xhr, textStatus, error) {
console.log('error in uploadFile', error);
reject(new Error(error))


Here is another example. It executes one promise after another. The allFiles is a array of files to be uploaded (html File object that generated by a html input field)

var uploadAllFilesPromise =[file1, file2], function (file) {
return uploadFile(file, uploadId)
}).then(function () {
}).catch(function (e) {
}).finally(function () {
// show preloader
$('button.submit').attr('disabled', false); //reenable submit button in case of server error


What is the map here? Here, promise generate a promise for each file in the array and pass that into a anonymous function, which returns a promise too. It will generate a array of promises, and when all promises resovles, it goes to the then.

We also have a catch here for display error messages. And a finally clause to executes no matter what. There, we hide the preloader and make the submit button enabled again.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
