A growing flood of data is aimed at JavaScript applications, and they need be ready for it. As more and more data is received, applications must scale to stay operational. There's also the problem of latency when data has to be fetched from remote locations. RxJS, or Reactive Extensions for JavaScript, is a library for transforming, composing, and consuming streams of dataA growing flood of data is aimed at JavaScript applications, and they need be ready for it. As more and more data is received, applications must scale to stay operational. There's also the problem of latency when data has to be fetched from remote locations. RxJS, or Reactive Extensions for JavaScript, is a library for transforming, composing, and consuming streams of data. RxJS combines reactive and functional programming to give an extensible, asynchronous event handling system for JavaScript.RxJS in Action gives readers the development skills they need to create reactive applications with RxJS. This book is full of theory and practical examples that build on each other and help readers begin thinking in a reactive manner. The book begins by teaching the fundamentals of functional programming, and dives in to the basics of RxJS and what it means to be reactive. Next, it teaches how to build real-world applications with RxJS. The last part of the book tackles the advanced topics to take the reader's reactive programming skills to the next level, as they will learn how to deal with error handling, unit testing, and the role of RxJS when combined with frameworks such as Angular.js or Cycle.js. Examples in the book use RxJS 5, the latest version of RxJS built with an eye on performance and simplicity.Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications....

    The book, RxJS in Action is wonderful for beginners who already know how to code with JavaScript and also for those who already know a bit about reactive extensions, making this book a perfect way to review what they've already learned. In the beginning, the book does help the reader to understand why Rx, reactive extensions could be a helpful program for those who want multiple events to finish in the same manner. Plus, the main benefit that most programs are used for is making things much easier. Of course, all the information and steps are basically inside, with easy to follow and understanding examples and defining of each term that may be a bit confusing. RxJS might not be as scary as I thought it would be, thanks to this book! There is still the similarities from other programs, such as the way you would write the code or codes for the page you plan to create. Therefore, the architecture design is similar, and I can still work with both asynchronous I/O and synchronous in the same manner. So no matter the code I set up, I would be able to have each step to be performed and completed with RxJS in the same order I would have placed in many other programs. One thing that is really big with reactive extensions is learning about streaming. This is one of the big topics in this book. It mainly refers to the steps that are taking to process each event you have set up and are being used, from start to end. Also, there is a refresher lesson on functional programming, FP. Therefore, if you don't know much about it, this section will help you. Of course, there are many helpful pieces that are covered in this book, to get you to understand how and what can be done with RxJS, even the links to have the codes used inside the book to help guide you are all there. The website that you can use to work with what you see inside is also listed. I do want to mention that there are some new parts added when using this program. However, with these few additions when using RxJS, it's not as hard to grasp and use with some practice and guidance from this book.I feel that this book has really taken the chance to show and guide the reader through RxJS with some ease. It doesn't just give you a brief idea, but breaks it down into parts and helps one to learn the important features and how to use them or what you may need to know before continuing. I love the detailed examples and illustrated steps that are used to help one understand a bit clearer. It's quite a great guidance in my opinion!Finally, there are so many programs out there and yet many are beneficial with performing better and allowing one to code programs quicker. However, I found this one to be quite useful for multiple events performing the same way and allowing me to understand the idea of how things can work with reactive extensions and what steps it takes to get you from step one to the next."Received a free copy for review"
