How to wait for multiple promises (using await) to all resolve

Sometimes we need to wait for a promise to resolve, and we also need to wait for another promise to resolve.

Something like this:

const values = await store.getAll()
const keys = await store.getAllKeys()

This works but it’s not ideal. First we’re waiting for the first call to be resolved, then we start the second.

I want to start both first, then I want to wait until both finished. Not a millisecond more.

The solution is to wrap all in a await Promise.all() call, like this:

const data = await Promise.all([store.getAll(), store.getAllKeys()])

Once this is resolved, we can access the first call value using data[0] and the second call return value with data[1].

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
