This library is a variation of standard event emitters. Handlers are executed sequentialy, and may return Promises if it executes asynchronous code.

For usage in the browser, use the files in the dist directory

Example usage

const SequentialEvent = require( 'sequential-event' );
 
function sampleTime( startTime ) {
    return new Date().getTime() - startTime;
}
const eventEmitter = new SequentialEvent();
 
// We create a new array with a new timer
eventEmitter.on( 'retime', startTime => {
    return [ sampleTime( startTime ) ];
});
// We wait 100ms and we re-time
eventEmitter.on( 'retime', ( startTime, timers ) => {
    // This operation is async, so we return a Promise that will be resolved
    // with the timers array
    return new Promise(( resolve ) => {
        setTimeout(() => {
            timers.push( sampleTime( startTime ));
            return resolve( timers );
        }, 100 );
    });
});
// We re-take a sample immediatly
eventEmitter.on( 'retime', ( startTime, timers ) => {
    // This operation is sync, so we can return our timers array directly
    timers.push( sampleTime( startTime ));
    return timers;
});
 
eventEmitter
    // Emit our retime event with the current date
    .emit( 'retime', new Date().getTime())
    // Log normaly if everything is OK, or log with error
    .then( timers => console.log( timers ))
    .catch( err => console.error( err ));

Here is an example of output of this code:

[ 1, 109, 109 ]

You can see that each on handlers are executed sequentially, after the end of the previous handler.

API

emit

Triggers all listeners of the provided events, spraying params to each callbacks. Returned or resolved values from callbacks (if returning a Promise) are passed as last parameter of the next callback function.

Signature:

emit(string eventName[, ...any params]) => Promise(any)

off

Remove callbacks from events.

Signature:

off(object events ) => this

// Remove all listeners
eventListener.off();
// Remove all listeners on 'eventFoo'
eventListener.off( 'eventFoo' );
// Remove `cb` from 'eventFoo'
eventListener.off( 'eventFoo', cb );
// Remove `cbFoo` from 'event1' and `cbBar` from 'event2'
eventListener.off({
    event1: cbFoo,
    event2: cbBar,
});

once

Bind callbacks to specified events. The callback will be executable a single time for each event.

Signatures:

once(string eventName, function callback) => this

once(object events ) => this

// Attach the same callback to `event1` & `event2`. `event1` callback may be
// executed a single time, as `event2`.
eventListener.once( 'event1 event2', () => Promise.resolve( 'foo' ));
// Bind a callback that returns 'foo' on `event1`, and 'bar' on `event2`. Both
// will be run a single time.
eventListener.once({
    event1: () => Promise.resolve( 'foo' ),
    event2: () => Promise.resolve( 'bar' ),
});

on

Attach callbacks to specified events.

Signatures:

on(string eventName, function callback) => this

on(object events ) => this

// Attach the same callback to `event1` & `event2`
eventListener.on( 'event1 event2', () => Promise.resolve( 'foo' ));
// Bind a callback that returns 'foo' on `event1`, and 'bar' on `event2`
eventListener.off({
    event1: () => Promise.resolve( 'foo' ),
    event2: () => Promise.resolve( 'bar' ),
});
