event-invoke

NPM version build status Test coverage npm download

The invoker based on event model provides an elegant way to call your methods in another container via promisify functions. (like child-processes, iframe, web worker etc). (Inspired by node-ipc-call)

Usage

  • Install the package
$ npm i -S event-invoke

Invoking method via child process

// parent.js
const cp = require('child_process');
const { Invoker } = require('event-invoke');

const invokerChannel = cp.fork('./child.js');

const invoker = new Invoker(invokerChannel);

async function main() {
  const res1 = await invoker.invoke('sleep', 1000);
  console.log('sleep 1000ms:', res1);
  const res2 = await invoker.invoke('max', [1, 2, 3]); // 3
  console.log('max(1, 2, 3):', res2);
  invoker.destroy();
}

main();
// child.js
const { Callee } = require('event-invoke');

const calleeChannel = process;

const callee = new Callee(calleeChannel);

// async method
callee.register(async function sleep(ms) {
  return new Promise((resolve) => {
    setTimeout(resolve, ms);
  });
});

// sync method
callee.register(function max(...args) {
  return Math.max(...args);
});

callee.listen();
