Coverage Status

Events pool

Accumulate multiple events from different sources into a single pool and dispatch a callback function afterward. Supports data aggregation as well!

Getting started

Installation

Install events-pool using NPM:

npm install events-pool --save

Usage

import EventsPool from 'events-pool';
 
/* Create a new event pool */
new EventsPool({
  events: 'promotionView',
  target: carouselDOMElement,
  callback(events, data) {
    dataLayer.push(data);
  }
});
 
/* Dispatch a custom event with data */
const promoViewEvent = new CustomEvent('promotionView', {
  /* Accumulated data is accessible from callback's "data" argument */
  detail: { ... }
});
 
carouselDOMElement.dispatchEvent(promoViewEvent);

Options

events: Array<string> | string

A single event or a list of event names to listen to.

eventTarget: EventTarget

Default: document

Target (DOMElement) which is expected to dispatch the event(s).

timeout: number

A duration (ms) of the timeout. When aggregate: true, stands for a time limit within which a new event is expected after catching the previous one.

callback: Function(events: Array<CustomEvent | Event>, data: Array<mixed>)

A callback function executed once the timeout is reached. An instance of each caught event (Event or CustomEvent) is being accumulated into a single pool available under the events argument.

Each data provided through CustomEvent.detail is accumulated and accessible under the data argument.

aggregate: boolean

Default: false Enable/disable aggregation mode. When the latter is enabled, each caught event prolongs the time within which the pool expects to receive a new event by the amount of timeout. Once no events are received within this time period, a callback function is called.
