JavaScript Promise Cheat-Sheet

Promise is a new JavaScript feature standardized in ES6, although it has been implemented by various libraries for a while now.

You can achieve the same effect with or without Promises, but Promises make it much simpler.

The attacks are not sophisticated at all, just brute forcing of the login page. But they are incessant; My webhost even had to make my login page non-executable to stop the barrage of login attempts.

Introducing Compute
