You can use dothis to be able to call functions after a certain period of time (kind of like setTimeout) or on a specific date.

Example

var dothis = require( 'dothis' );
 
// Using with a time 
dothis( function( offBy, percentage ) {  console.log( 'Finished', offBy, 'milliseconds late.' ); })
.in( 1000 ) // in one second 
.update( function( offBy, percentage ) { console.log( 'We\'re', percentage, 'done.' ) });
 
// Using with a date 
dothis( function( offBy, percentage ) {  console.log( 'Finished', offBy, 'milliseconds late.' ); })
.at( new Date( Datw.now() + 1000 ) ) // use a date to represent in one second 
.update( function( offBy, percentage ) { console.log( 'We\'re', percentage, 'done.' ) });
