a package to: wait, then do something asynchronously.
wait is yet another step in making
setTimeout more efficient.
It also allow easy use of the promises while removing all the
Promises in your app.
wait, you must first install it, it available on npm.
npm install async-wait-then
Import as npm module:
// Using ES6 syntax;// Using CommonJS or requireJS syntaxlet wait = ;
To use it, you run
wait with the time to wait as the only attribute
// Pass on microseconds;// Pass a string as parameter;
- time: Time to wait before resolving the promise. can be a string or a number. if it's a number it's parsed as micro-seconds. If a string, it's parsed according to the ms utility.
A promise, which you can attach
Note: wait only resolves, it never rejects. In other words: it only allows
.then()to be called, not
.catch(), if you listen for
catch, no error is likely to be thrown, so it's useless.
Common builds are provided directly with the module, so if you ever wanted to require the umd build, you would do something like:
require("async-wait/index.umd.js"), you can replace umd for:
- cjs (default)
other builds are provided (for convenience) in
You may use this, when triggering notifications, or just to avoid using the ol'
setTimeout API. In fact, it uses it, but with a Promise wrapper.
requestIdleCallback, this is more efficient and works when no time was provided.
