Asynchronous promises in rust using threads

#Overview

This library provides an usefull way to invoke functions (clousures) in a Promise Style using separated threads. A Promise is a Struct that represents the return value or the error that the funcion produces.

It also allows the execution of tasks in Parallel or Series in deferred, joining the result in a Promise.

It includes methods to manage Event Loops, where there are tasks that "emit" events in background, and they are collected by a promise.

This project is based on the Q Promise library for Node JS and Async.js

Examples

This is a simple setup for a promise based execution:

use asynchronous::Promise;
 
Promise::new(|| {
  // Do something  
  let ret = 10.0 / 3.0;
  if ret > 0.0 { Ok(ret) } else { Err("Incorrect Value") }
}).success(|res| {            // res has type f64
  // Do something if the previous result is correct
  assert_eq!(res, 10.0 / 3.0);
  let res_int = res as u32 * 2;
  Ok(res_int)
}).finally_sync(|res| {       // res has type Result<u32,&str>
  // Executed always at the end
  assert_eq!(res.unwrap(), 6u32);
});

Deferred execution:

use asynchronous::{Promise,Deferred,ControlFlow};

let d_a = Deferred::<&str, &str>::new(|| { Ok("a") });
let p_b = Promise::<&str, &str>::new(|| { Ok("b") });  // Executed right now
let d1 = Deferred::<u32, &str>::new(|| { Ok(1u32) });
let d2 = Deferred::<u32, &str>::new(|| { Err("Mock Error") });
let d3 = Deferred::<u32, &str>::new(|| { Ok(3u32) });
let d4 = Deferred::<u32, &str>::new(|| { Ok(4u32) });
let d5 = Deferred::<u32, &str>::new(|| { Ok(5u32) });

let promise = Deferred::vec_to_promise(vec![d1,d2,d3], ControlFlow::Parallel);
// Only d1, d2 and d3 are being executed at this time.

assert_eq!("ab", d_a.to_promise().success(|res_a| {
    p_b.success(move |res_b| {
        Ok(res_a.to_string() + res_b)
    }).sync()
}).sync().unwrap());

promise.success(|res| {
    // Catch the result. In this case, tasks d4 and d5 never will be executed
    Ok(res)
}).fail(|error| {
    // Catch the error and execute another Promise
    assert_eq!(error, vec![Ok(1u32), Err("Mock Error"), Ok(3u32)]);    
    Deferred::vec_to_promise(vec![d4,d5], ControlFlow::Series).sync()
}).finally_sync(|res| {   // res : Result<Vec<u32>,&str>
    // Do something here    
    assert_eq!(res.unwrap(), vec![4u32, 5u32]);
});

Simple event loop:

use asynchronous::EventLoop;

let el = EventLoop::new().finish_in_ms(100);
el.emit("Event1");
el.emit("Event2");
// Do something here
el.to_promise().finally_sync(|res| {  // res: Result<Vec<Ev>,()>
    assert_eq!(res.unwrap(), vec!["Event1", "Event2"]);
});
