What’s New In ES2022, And Why Should You Care?

In a few months, the updated version of ECMA Script will become standard. Let’s have a look at some of the features that will be included in ES2022.

ES2022’s characteristics:

The indexable values method .at()

This method allows us to read an element from a specified index. It can read elements from the end of a datatype using negative indexes.

Example:

[1,2,3,4,5].at(2)  // returns 2

[1,2,3,4,5].at(-4)   // returns 2

Await modules at the top level

We may now utilize await at the module level, eliminating the need to employ async functions or methods.

  • Dynamically loading modules
const chat = await import(`./chat-${language}.mjs`);
  • If module loading fails, a fallback is used.
let loading;
try {
  loading = await import('https://first.example.com/loading');
} catch {
  loading = await import('https://second.example.com/loading');
}
  • Using the resource that loads the fastest
const response = await Promise.any([
  fetch('http://example.com/first.txt')
    .then(response => response.text()),
  fetch('http://example.com/second.txt')
    .then(response => response.text()),
]);
