Promise-mysql2
Build Status
Promise-mysql2 is a wrapper for mysqljs/mysql that wraps function calls with promises.
node >= 8.0
To install promise-mysql, use npm:
$ npm install promise-mysql2

Please refer to mysqljs/mysql for documentation on how to use the mysql functions.
At the minute only the standard connection (using .createConnection()) and the pool (using .createPool()) is supported. createPoolCluster is not implemented yet.

Examples

Connection

Important note: don't forget to call connection.end() when you're finished otherwise the Node process won't finish
To connect, you simply call .createConnection() like you would on mysqljs/mysql:
const mysql = require('promise-mysql2');

mysql.createConnection({
	host: 'localhost',
	user: 'dashaibi',
	password: 'dashaibi',
	database: 'dashaibi'
}).then((conn) => {
    // do stuff with conn
    conn.end();
});

To use the promise, you call the methods as you would if you were just using mysqljs/mysql, minus the callback. You then add a .then() with your function in:
const mysql = require('promise-mysql2');

mysql.createConnection({
	host: 'localhost',
	user: 'dashaibi',
	password: 'dashaibi',
	database: 'dashaibi'
}).then((conn) => {
	let result = conn.query('select `name` from user');
	conn.end();
	return result;
}).then(([rows, fields]) => {
	// list of user
	console.log(rows);
});

You can even chain the promises, using a return within the .then():
const mysql = require('promise-mysql2');
let connection;

mysql.createConnection({
	host: 'localhost',
	user: 'dashaibi',
	password: 'dashaibi',
	database: 'dashaibi'
}).then((conn) => {
	connection = conn;
	return connection.query('select `id` from user where `name`="dashabi"');
}).then(([rows, fields]) => {
	// Query the items that dashabi owns.
	let result = connection.query('select * from items where `owner`="' + rows[0].id + '" and `name`="dashabi"');
	connection.end();
	return result;
}).then(([rows, fields]) => {
	// Logs out that dashabi owns
	console.log(rows);
});

You can catch errors using the .catch() method. You can still add .then() clauses, they'll just get skipped if there's an error
const mysql = require('promise-mysql2');
let connection;

mysql.createConnection({
	host: 'localhost',
	user: 'dashaibi',
	password: 'dashaibi',
	database: 'dashaibi'
}).then((conn) => {
	connection = conn;
	return connection.query('select * from tablethatdoesnotexist');
}).then(() => {
	let result = connection.query('select * from user');
	connection.end();
	return result;
}).catch((error) => {
	if (connection && connection.end) connection.end();
	//logs out the error
	console.log(error);
});

To use the async/await, you call the methods as you would if you were just using mysqljs/mysql.
const mysql = require('promise-mysql2');
let connection = await mysql.createConnection({
	host: 'localhost',
	user: 'dashaibi',
	password: 'dashaibi',
	database: 'dashaibi'
});
const [rows, fields] = await connection.query('select `id` from user where `name`="dashabi"');
connection.end();
console.log(rows);

Pool

Use pool directly:
pool = mysql.createPool({
	host: 'localhost',
	user: 'dashaibi',
	password: 'dashaibi',
	database: 'dashaibi'
  connectionLimit: 10
});

pool.query('select `name` from user').then(([rows, fields]){
    // Logs out a list of user
    console.log(rows);
});

Get a connection from the pool:
let conn;
pool.getConnection().then((connection) => {
	conn = connection;
	conn.query('select `name` from user').then(...);
	conn.release();
}).catch((err) => {
	conn.release();
	done(err);
});

To use the async/await, you call the methods as you would if you were just using mysqljs/mysql.
const pool = mysql.createPool({
	host: 'localhost',
	user: 'dashaibi',
	password: 'dashaibi',
	database: 'dashaibi'
  connectionLimit: 10
});

const [rows, fields] = await pool.query('select `name` from user');
console.log(rows);

// get connection from pool
const conn = await pool.getConnection();
const [rows, fields] = await connection.query('select `name` from user');
conn.release();
console.log(rows);

Tests

At the moment only simple basics tests are implemented using Mocha. To run the tests, you need to connect to a running MySQL server. A database or write permissions are not required.
Start the test suite with
DB_HOST=localhost DB_USER=user DB_PWD=pwd npm test
