Resolves promises idly.

Build Status NPM version

npm install q-lazy


It's a simple plugin for Q allowing you to create lazy promises. Such promises start to resolve only after calling .then() on them.


var Q = require('q');
require('q-lazy'); // extends Q

function heavyFunc () {
    // ...
    return ret; // the return value can be a promise or a plain value

var promise = Q.lazy(heavyFunc); // doesn't execute heavyFunc

promise.then(function (ret) {    // executes heavyFunc
    // use ret

For specification take a look at provided testsuite. It's short.
