Await an Async Function and Do Something with it in One Line of Javascript

August 23, 2020

Have you ever wanted a one-liner that let’s you await the result of a function and do some further processing?

Instead of:

const resp = await fetch('')
const body = await json()

You want a way to skip declaring a resp constant and get directly to the body.

Here’s some syntactical sugar in Javascript that let’s you do just that.

const body = (await fetch('')).json()
