Rx on other platforms
– Autocomplete, drag&drop, animation, etc.
– Used for server-side concurrency (heavy requests
instead of multiple light requests)
– “functional reactive is superior to futures and
– using IObservable<T> allows choosing asynchronous
or synchronous execution & I/O at runtime
Beginner's Guide to the Reactive Extensions
“GitHub for Windows uses the Reactive Extensions for almost everything
it does, including network requests, UI events, managing child processes
[…] while still having 100% deterministic, reliable unit tests. The desktop
developers at GitHub loved Rx so much, that the Mac team created their
own version of Rx and ReactiveUI, called ReactiveCocoa, and are now
using it on the Mac to obtain similar benefits.”
