Core Concepts

Frame is an object available as a global "singleton" when you import it. There is no instantiation required.

Loop (Private)

With Frame, you will run a unique window.requestAnimationFrame based loop. It is the Frame Loop. You always want to start it with Frame.start() and stop it with Frame.stop().

Actions (Private)

A Map reference containing the Frame Action to call inside the Frame Loop

Stack (Private)

An Array containing the Frame Actions, but ordered by weight. The higher the weight is, the lower is the action's priority execution inside the Frame Loop. Sorting Actions is executed each time an action in added to the Frame Stack.

Usage

Install

npm install --save @thmsdmcrt_/libraf
yarn add @thmsdmcrt_/libraf

Import

// ES
import { Frame } from "@thmsdmcrt_/libraf";
 
// UMD
const { Frame } = require("@thmsdmcrt_/libraf");

Methods

Adding an Action to the Stack

/**
 * Add an action in the Frame Actions & Frame Stack.
 * @param {*} identifier Map key to identify a Frame Action.
 * @param {function} action Frame Action.
 * @param {number} weight Frame Action's priority. Greater number equals lower priority.
 * @returns {*} Frame
 */
Frame.add(
    "identifier",
    function(time) {
        /* Logic */
    },
    0
);

The action accept the current loop time since the last Frame.start call as first argument.

Removing an Action from the Stack

/**
 * Remove an action from the Frame Actions & Frame Stack.
 * @param {*} identifier Map key reference.
 * @returns {*} Frame
 */
Frame.remove("identifier");

Clearing Stack & registered Actions

/**
 * Clear Frame Actions & Frame Stack.
 * @returns {*} Frame
 */
Frame.clear();

Start Loop

Stopping the loop will silently fail if is running (where Frame.active() === true).

/**
 * Start the Frame Loop.
 * @returns {*} Frame
 */
Frame.start();

Stop Loop

Stopping the loop will silently fail if is not running (where Frame.active() === false).

/**
 * Stop the Frame Loop.
 * @returns {*} Frame
 */
Frame.stop();

Get elpased time

/**
 * Frame current Time since the last start call.
 * @returns {number} Frame Time
 */
Frame.time();

Get the loop state

/**
 * Return the active state of Frame.
 * @returns {boolean} Frame's active state.
 */
Frame.active();

Trigger an action in the next Frame

/**
 * Call an action once in the next tick of Frame Loop. If the Frame Loop is inactive, the methods act as shorthand for window.requestAnimationFrame().
 * @param {function} action The next Frame action to execute.
 * @returns {*} Frame
 */
Frame.next(function() {
    /* Logic */
});
