How do I return the response from an asynchronous call?

katedagreat profile image Kate ・1 min read

Hello from the north!

I've been enjoying learning JavaScript and have made it through most of my course. But, I've gotten a little stuck on the issues of returning responses from asyc calls.

Can anyone help me figure this out?

Thanks!

Writing synchronous code, you can retrieve the response of a synchronous call as such:

let response = function1();
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If function1 is a Promise, one could rephrase the above as

(async () => { 
let response = await function1();
})();
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
