Promise.props(Object|Map|Promise<Object|Map> input) -> Promise

Like .all but for object properties or Maps* entries instead of iterated values. Returns a promise that is fulfilled when all the properties of the object or the Map's' values** are fulfilled. The promise's fulfillment value is an object or a Map with fulfillment values at respective keys to the original object or a Map. If any promise in the object or Map rejects, the returned promise is rejected with the rejection reason.

If object is a trusted Promise, then it will be treated as a promise for object rather than for its properties. All other objects (except Maps) are treated for their properties as is returned by Object.keys - the object's own enumerable properties.

*Only the native ECMAScript 6 Map implementation that is provided by the environment as is is supported

**If the map's keys happen to be Promises, they are not awaited for and the resulting Map will still have those same Promise instances as keys

        sizeInfo.smallest.filePath, sizeInfo.smallest.size,
        sizeInfo.largest.filePath, sizeInfo.largest.size));

Note that if you have no use for the result object other than retrieving the properties, it is more convenient to use Promise.join:

Promise.join(getPictures(), getComments(), getTweets(),
    function(pictures, comments, tweets) {
    console.log(pictures, comments, tweets);
