Defer and flush Q promise chains on demand, allows sync unit tests

NPM

Build status dependencies devdependencies

Usually we cannot write sync unit tests if there are promises. For example, this code fails, because the console.log line executes before the .then callback executes.

var result;
Q(10).then(function (value) {
  result = value;
});
console.log(result); // prints undefined

Using q-flush you can collect all .then calls, and then execute them synchronously.

var Q = require('Q');
require('q-flush');

var result;
Q.deferFlush();
Q(10).then(function (value) {
  result = value;
});
Q.flush();
console.log(result); // prints 10

While this is possible, I still argue that a better option would be to pick a testing framework that understands the promises natively, for example Mocha. See Picking JavaScript testing framework.
