JavaScript interview questions and answers

async/await is built on top of promises, so it’s compatible with all the features offered by promises. This includes Promise.all() â€” you can quite happily await a Promise.all() call to get all the results returned into a variable in a way that looks like simple synchronous code. Again, let’s return to an example we saw in our previous article. Keep it open in a separate tab so you can compare and contrast with the new version shown below.

Example:

async function fetchAndDecode(url, type) {
  let response = await fetch(url);

  let content;

  if(type === 'blob') {
    content = await response.blob();
  } else if(type === 'text') {
    content = await response.text();
  }

  return content;
}

async function displayContent() {
  let coffee = fetchAndDecode('coffee.jpg', 'blob');
  let tea = fetchAndDecode('tea.jpg', 'blob');
  let description = fetchAndDecode('description.txt', 'text');

  let values = await Promise.all([coffee, tea, description]);

  let objectURL1 = URL.createObjectURL(values[0]);
  let objectURL2 = URL.createObjectURL(values[1]);
  let descText = values[2];

  let image1 = document.createElement('img');
  let image2 = document.createElement('img');
  image1.src = objectURL1;
  image2.src = objectURL2;
  document.body.appendChild(image1);
  document.body.appendChild(image2);

  let para = document.createElement('p');
  para.textContent = descText;
  document.body.appendChild(para);
}

displayContent()
.catch((e) =>
  console.log(e)
);
