Reactive SDK in NodeJS?


#1

Is a reactive NodeJS SDK in the plan?
It’s available in java but not in node. I guess it’s a question of priority?

thx

Hi Ludovic,
To the best of my knowledge, no (but perhaps @brett19 will have different insight to provide).

The Java SDK 2.0 was rewritten around the concepts of reactive programming and RxJava, from scratch.

It’s also worth noting that Java SDK is a pure Java implementation whereas some other SDKs (like the Node one) rely on libcouchbase, the C implementation of the SDK, as their basis. So it can be a little bit more complicated to introduce far reaching changes like reactive concepts in such an SDK.

node.js is inherently reactive; various things in Java are “reactive” because Java by default uses threading as its concurrency model, rather than I/O events.
