gimmie Build Status

The stupid iterator.

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install gimmie


gimmie( Any... ): Function

Accepts any number of values of any type and returns a function that yields each given value in turn when invoked multiple times.

    var gimmie = require('gimmie');
    var next = gimmie(3, 5, 7);
    console.log(next()); // 3 
    console.log(next()); // 5 
    console.log(next()); // 7 
    console.log(next()); // undefined 

gimmie( Function... ): Function

Accepts any number of functions and returns a function which masquerades as each given function in turn when invoked multiple times. Useful for mocking methods or injecting assertions in tests.

    var $ = require('jquery');
    var assert = require('assert');
    var gimmie = require('gimmie');
    var origAjax = $.ajax;
    $.ajax = gimmie(
        function (url) {
            assert.equal(url, '');
            return origAjax.apply($, arguments);
        function (url) {
            assert.equal(url, '');
            return origAjax.apply($, arguments);
    $.ajax('').then( ... ); // pass 
    $.ajax('').then( ... ); // fail 


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
