Reactive Extensions Library for JavaScript. This is a rewrite of Reactive-Extensions/RxJS and is the latest production-ready version of RxJS. This rewrite is meant to have better performance, better modularity, better debuggable call stacks, while staying mostly backwards compatible, with some breaking changes that reduce the API surface.

Because of this issue we're using yarn. (Basically the docs app uses @types/jasmine, and the package uses @types/mocha and they get hoisted to the top level by npm install with workspaces, and then TypeScript vomits everywhere when you try to build).

  1. cd to the repository root
  2. yarn install to install all dependencies
  3. yarn workspace rxjs test will run the RxJS test suite
  4. yarn workspace start will start the documentation site local development server
