The Mozilla Web Workers API is a browser-based API for handling web workers, which are mechanisms for running script operations in a background thread of a web application. This prevents such operations from blocking or slowing down the main thread with their processing requirements. This API covers dedicated workers, shared workers, service workers, chrome workers, and audio workers.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
