About the Technology

On the web, events and messages flow constantly between UI and server components. With RxJS, you can filter, merge, and transform these streams directly, opening the world of data flow programming to browser-based apps. This JavaScript implementation of the ReactiveX spec is perfect for on-the-fly tasks like autocomplete. Its asynchronous communication model makes concurrency much, much easier.

About the Book

RxJS in Action is your guide to building a reactive web UI using RxJS. You’ll begin with an intro to stream-based programming as you explore the power of RxJS through practical examples. With the core concepts in hand, you’ll tackle production techniques like error handling, unit testing, and interacting with frameworks like React and Redux. And because RxJS builds on ideas from the world of functional programming, you’ll even pick up some key FP concepts along the way.

What’s Inside

  • Building clean, declarative, fault-tolerant applications
  • Transforming and composing streams
  • Taming asynchronous processes
  • Integrating streams with third-party libraries
  • Covers RxJS 5
