The function coroutine accepts as an argument $resolvable value and resolves it as callable or promose with support for yield from instances of \Generator, and returns a promise either resolved with the final value that cannot be resolved further or rejected with the first \Throwable that wasn't caught in the chain

Install via composer:

"require": {
   "smscr/simple-coroutine-for-reactphp": "^1.0.0"


The first argument of the function is $resolvable value

If second argument $call = true, then would be attempted first to resolve (through possible Promise chains) the $resolvable value to a callable. If a callable is detected, it is invoked and it's return value is resolved (through possible Promise chains). This applies recursively.

If $resolvable is a Generator, or a Generator is found by resolving $resolvable or by resolving a result of invoked callable, then the Generator is processed as a coroutine

If the $resolvable is an array, then it would be mapped to resolved values, including, if $call = true, then all entries of the array will be attempted to resolve to a callable or a Generator, each, independently, and this applies recursively.

When a Generator is processed as a coroutine, this function is applied to any value yielded by a Generator, that means, a callable (if $call = true), a Generator, a Promise or an array of any of such will be resolved by the rules above if yielded by a Generator resolved by the rules above

After the value yielded by a Generator is resolved, the result is sent to the Generator If any errors occur during resolving a value, it is thrown into a Generator Once a Generator returns a value, it is resolved by the rules above

The resolved value that was returned by a Generator is a result of the Promise returned by this function, possibly as an element of an array of such results
