    clocktick

    Clock-accurate timeout for Node.js and browser. Basically it is identical to setTimeout, but it triggers callback function precisely on the next second.

    example

    See an example here

    accuracy

    Accuracy should be around 1–2ms.

    installation

    npm install clocktick
    

    usage

    Usage is similar to setTimeout, but without delay parameter:

    var tick = require('clocktick')
    tick(callback) // Ticks every second
    

    You can use the delay parameter, but it is in seconds:

    tick(callback, 2) // Ticks on 2nd second (00, 02, 04, 06, 08, 10,...)
    

    You can also offset seconds:

    tick(callback, 3) // Ticks on 3rd second (03, 06, 9, 12, 15, 18, ...)
    tick(callback, 3, 1) // Ticks on 3rd+1 second (04, 07, 10, 13, 16, 19, ...)
    tick(callback, 3, 2) // Ticks on 3rd+2 second (05, 08, 11, 14, 17, 20, ...)
    

    repeat

    You can repeat the tick by just calling it again:

    tick(callback)
    
    function callback () {
      console.log('tick')
      tick(callback)
    }
    

    cancel

    You can cancel the tick by using clearTimeout:

    var timeout = tick(callback)
    
    clearTimeout(timeout)
