Module for determining if device is sleeping
Zip archive: Download
npm install hypnos
bower install hypnos
Live demo - should be checked on mobile.
Hypnos is a module for determination if device is sleeping. This may be used for cases when you need to know for sure, that device on which code is executing is currently working (most probably these are the cases with repetitive actions taking place or some time-driven queue).
Ergo, callback will not be executed until browser takes control of the device.
The main targets of module were mobile devices but with careful tuning it may also work for desktop as well.
Note: There is also a possibility of performing similar action with help of Page Visibility API but it lacks support in most mobile browsers.
Hypnos may be used without any modular system:
With help of browserify:
var Hypnos = ;var hypnos = ;
Or AMD style (RequireJS):
The actual usage:
constructor (Object options) - creates a Hypnos instance. May be called with one optional parameters - options object.
options (Object options) - gets or sets options object. If options object is provided, sets it, otherwise - returns the current options object.
isSleeping (Function callback) - checks whether device is sleeping. Accepts callback which will be executed when device is awake. Callback accepts one parameter isSleeping Boolean which shows if device was sleeping.
Feel free to open issues and send PRs, though make sure that you create tests for new functionality and amend ones for fixes and changes.
Tests are not covering the actual functionality due to complexity of their
implementation but at least they cover passing parameters, options generation etc.
npm test in order to see test results.
