    SignalsJS is a TypeScript port of AS3 Signals. 15KB compressed.

    About

    Signals are light-weight, strongly-typed messaging tools. Wire your application with better APIs and less boilerplate than normal event systems.

    Concept

    • A Signal is essentially a mini-dispatcher specific to one event, with its own array of listeners.
    • A Signal gives an event a concrete membership in a class.
    • Listeners subscribe to real objects, not to string-based channels.
    • Event string constants are no longer needed.
    • Signals was originally implemented by Robert Penner in AS3.
    • Signals are inspired by C# events and signals/slots in Qt.

    Syntax

    // with DOM EventListener
    button.addEventListener("click", onClick);
    
    // Signal equivalent; past tense is recommended
    button.clicked.add(onClicked);
