Add an event listener.

var bind = require('event');
 
bind(document.body, 'click', function(evtarget) {
  //do something 
});

The second argument of the callback is the element (cross browser target) that trigerred the event.

Delegate events.

bind(document.body, 'click button.clickable', function() {
  //do something only when buttons with the  
  //class clickable are clicked 
});

Filter events.

var input = document.querySelector('input');
 
bind(input, 'keypress > 13', function() {
  //do something only on enter 
});

Returns an array (topic, callback, capture) in case you want to remove the listener.

Remove an event listener.

bind.off(document.body,'click', fn);
