Figuring out RXJS


  • Getting it to work with typescript

    • Error: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'Observable' of undefined. Works in plain javascript.
    • Fix:
      • Install type definitions for rxjs npm install --save-dev @type/rx
      • Import as import * as Rx from 'rxjs'
  • (Archive) Issues with Rx.DOM.get(). Error: The value of the 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header in the response must not be the wildcard '*' when the request's credentials mode is 'include'

    const settings = {
    crossDomain: true,
    responseType: "json",
    method: "GET",
    createXHR: () => new XMLHttpRequest(),
    url: url
  • Ajax with rxjs 6
import {ajax} from 'rxjs/ajax';
export const getSettings$ = (url) => ajax(`${url}`);


Ajax and VueJS

  • Setup services file to actually make the ajax calls services.ts
import {ajax} from 'rxjs/ajax';
export getSettings$ = (url) => ajax(`${url}`);
  • Vue Component - about/script.ts
import {Vue, Component} from "vue-property-decorator";
import {Observable} from 'rxjs';
import {IAbout, About as AboutModel } from "../../../models";
import { getSettings$ } from '../../../services';

export default class About extends Vue {

  about: IAbout = new AboutModel();
  getService: Observable<any>;

  created() {
    const url = '/admin/site/30b3cf31-a413-4871-aef2-c4b125cd5b36';
    this.getService = getSettings$(url);
      data => console.log(data),
      err => console.error(err)
