Similar to base::lapply() or purrr::map, but promise-aware: the .f function is permitted to return promises, and while lapply returns a list, promise_map returns a promise that resolves to a similar list (of resolved values only, no promises).

promise_map(.x, .f, ...)



A vector (atomic or list) or an expression object (but not a promise). Other objects (including classed objects) will be coerced by base::as.list.


The function to be applied to each element of .x. The function is permitted, but not required, to return a promise.


Optional arguments to .f.


A promise that resolves to a list (of values, not promises).


promise_map processes elements of .x serially; that is, if .f(.x[[1]]) returns a promise, then .f(.x[[2]]) will not be invoked until that promise is resolved. If any such promise rejects (errors), then the promise returned by promise_map immediately rejects with that err.


# Waits x seconds, then returns x*10
wait_this_long <- function(x) {
  }, delay = x))

promise_map(list(A=1, B=2, C=3), wait_this_long) %...>%
