Basic usage

Like but built specifically to run the async callback functions in parallel. The first argument is a limit of how many functions should be allowed to run at once. Returns an array of results.

import { parallel } from 'radash'

const userIds = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]

// Will run the find user async function 3 at a time
// starting another request when one of the 3 is freed
const users = await parallel(3, userIds, async (userId) => {
  return await api.users.find(userId)


When all work is complete parallel will check for errors. If any occurred they will all be thrown in a single AggregateError that has an errors property that is all the errors that were thrown.

import { parallel, try as tryit } from 'radash'

const userIds = [1, 2, 3]

const [err, users] = await tryit(parallel)(3, userIds, async (userId) => {
  throw new Error(`No, I don\'t want to find user ${userId}`)

console.log(err) // => AggregateError
console.log(err.errors) // => [Error, Error, Error]
console.log(err.errors[1].message) // => No, I don't want to find user 2
