Examples

( example tests )

Example 1: First value from sequence

( jsBin | jsFiddle )

const source = Rx.Observable.from([1,2,3,4,5]);
//no arguments, emit first value
const example = source.first();
//output: "First value: 1"
const subscribe = example.subscribe(val => console.log(`First value: ${val}`));
Example 2: First value to pass predicate

( jsBin | jsFiddle )

const source = Rx.Observable.from([1,2,3,4,5]);
//emit first item to pass test
const example = source.first(num => num === 5);
//output: "First to pass test: 5"
const subscribe = example.subscribe(val => console.log(`First to pass test: ${val}`));
Example 3: Using optional projection function

( jsBin | jsFiddle )

const source = Rx.Observable.from([1,2,3,4,5]);
//using optional projection function
const example = source.first(num => num % 2 === 0, 
                                    (result, index) => `First even: ${result} is at index: ${index}`);
//output: "First even: 2 at index: 1"
const subscribe = example.subscribe(val => console.log(val));
Example 4: Utilizing default value

( jsBin | jsFiddle )

const source = Rx.Observable.from([1,2,3,4,5]);
//no value will pass, emit default
const example = source.first(val => val > 5, val => `Value: ${val}`, 'Nothing');
//output: 'Nothing'
const subscribe = example.subscribe(val => console.log(val));
