— Wat


Should the function always be sync or async? i mean, can it be sync and async on condition (yes it can) or it is a bad practice?

— Yes, that's bad

— Make it always sync or always async

— Ive heard something about it, but more info?

— Even if the asyncness is just setTimeout(..., 0); or return Promise.resolve(...)

— Hmm.. okay

— Sync for user interaction, most of the cases, async for fetches

— Async for both, always

— Uhhhh

— Not sure what kind of user interaction you normally do

— But i dont want to stop the whole app because of a interaction.. do i?
