forEachSync(list, cb, fin)

Calls a callback for each item in a list after one another

Params

  • Array list: An array of values to be passed into the callback
  • forEachSyncCallback cb: The callback function called with each list item
  • Function fin: The callback function called at the end

forEachSyncCallback(item, next, fin)

Params

  • Anything item: The item at the current iteration of the loop
  • Function next: The callback function called to advance the loop
  • Function fin: The callback function called to end the loop early

forEach(list, cb, fin)

Calls a callback for each item in a list at the same time

Params

  • Array list: An array of values to be passed into the callback
  • forEachCallback cb: The callback function called with each list item
  • Function fin: The callback function called at the end with error Boolean

forEachCallback(item, done)

Params

  • Anything item: The item at the current iteration of the loop
  • Function done: The callback function called to end the current iteration with optional error Boolean

whileSync(cb, fin)

Calls a callback repeatedly until a condition is met

Params

  • whileSyncCallback cb: The callback function called to get the condition value
  • Function fin: The callback function called at the end

whileSyncCallback(next)

Params

  • Function next: The callback function called with the condition value to advance the loop

forEachFunctionSync(funcs, fin)

Calls functions in a list after one another

Params

  • Array funcs: An array of functions (forEachFunctionSyncCallback) to be called
  • Function fin: The callback function called at the end

forEachFunctionSyncCallback(next, fin)

Params

  • Function next: The callback function called to advance the loop
  • Function fin: The callback function called to end the loop early

forEachFunction(funcs, fin)

Calls functions in a list at the same time

Params

  • Array funcs: An array of functions (forEachFunctionCallback) to be called
  • Function fin: The callback function called at the end with error Boolean

forEachFunctionCallback(done)

Params

  • Function done: The callback function called to end the current iteration with optional error Boolean

wait(cond, cb, dur)

Blocks until a condition is met

Params

  • Function cond: The condition function - returns True when condition is met
  • Function cb: The callback function called when the condition is met
  • Number dur: Duration between condition checks - default 500ms

syncFuncLoop(func)

Promise like interface to forEachFunctionSync

Params

  • syncFuncLoopCallback func: The initial callback function to run

Return

  • Object syncFuncLoop object containing the following methods:
  • then (syncFuncLoopCallback): Register a method to be called after next()
  • finally (Function): Register a method to be called at the end with error message parameter

syncFuncLoopCallback(next, fin)

Params

  • Function next: The callback function called to advance the loop
  • Function fin: The callback function called to end the loop early with optional error message parameter

run(func)

Return new instance of syncFuncLoop

Params

  • syncFuncLoopCallback func: The initial callback function to run
