How I refactored maze generating Python code and used advanced class features

Previously, I have created a maze generating code while learning Python. Later I enhanced it with animation and marking special cells. All of it was done in rush, to solve the problem. Now I spent some time improving the quality of the code by encapsulating code into classes, using “private” methods and fields and separating concerns. The exact steps I took can be viewed in the GitHub repository or read here.

Programming paradigms in JavaScript – callbacks, Promise, async/await, promisify, functional Ramda and reactive RxJS

Programming paradigms in JavaScript – callbacks, Promise, async/await, promisify, functional Ramda and reactive RxJS

As a quick exercise, I wanted to read all URLs from my page’s sitemap instead of crawling the site. Just after I added a nested callback I decided to apply the Single Responsibility Principle and convert calls to Promises. Later I experimented with async/await and automatic conversion with Node’s promisify. Finally, I rewrote the solution in functional style using Ramda and reactive using RxJS. Read on to follow the evolution of callbacks in JavaScript.
