intrvl

Lightweight, efficient extension of the interval API

Installation

npm install intrvl

Usage

intrvl.setIntrvl(toExecute, intervalMillis, timeoutMillis, maxExecutionCount)

  • toExecute Function. Executes at every interval
  • intervalMillis Number. How many milliseconds between execution
  • timeoutMillis Number. How long to allow the interval to run before stopping. Left undefined, the interval will run without a timeout
  • maxExecutionCount Number. How many times to execute the interval before stopping. Left undefined, the interval will run without a max

Returns a new Intrvl class instance (running by default)

Class: intrvl.Intrvl

Passed back from the intrvl.setIntrvl method.

Intrvl.stop()

Causes the interval to stop execution, as if a timeout or max had been reached.

var setIntrvl = require('intrvl').setIntrvl;

var interval = setIntrvl(function(){
    console.log('Hello, World')
}, 1000); // runs indefinitely

interval.on('stop', function(execCount) {
    console.log('Stopped after ' + execCount + ' executions');
});

// ... do some other logic, answer some server requests, etc..

// ... oh no, I need to cancel the interval!
interval.stop();
Event: 'exec'

Emitted on each execution of the interval. Argument is the current execution count

var setIntrvl = require('intrvl').setIntrvl;

var interval = setIntrvl(function(){
    console.log('Hello, World');
}, 1000, undefined, 5); // executes every second, stops after 5 executions

interval.on('exec', function(execCount) {
    console.log('Execution ' + execCount + ' occured');
});
Event: 'stop'

Emitted when an interval has finished, either by self-imposed limits (timeoutMills, maxExecutionCount), or by calling .stop() on a running instance. Argument is the total execution count

var setIntrvl = require('intrvl').setIntrvl;

var interval = setIntrvl(function(){
    console.log('Hello, World');
}, 1000, undefined, 5); // executes every second, stops after 5 executions

interval.on('stop', function(execCount) {
    console.log('Executions: ' + execCount);
});

More Examples

Using competing configurations

// runs every 1 ms, ends after 100ms or 100 executions, whichever happens first!

var setIntrvl = require('intrvl').setIntrvl;

var intervalMillis = 1;
var timeoutMillis = 100;
var maxExecutionCount = 100;

var interval = setIntrvl(function() {
    console.log('Hello, World');
}, intervalMillis, timeoutMillis, maxExecutionCount);

interval.on('stop', function(execCount) {
    console.log('ENDED: ' + execCount);
});

Inifinite intrvl still gives us events!

// runs every 1 ms, never ends
// might as well use setInterval at this point, right?
// hold up - we can still have fun with events!

var setIntrvl = require('intrvl').setIntrvl;

var intervalMillis = 1;
var timeoutMillis = undefined;
var maxExecutionCount = undefined;

var interval = setIntrvl(function() {
    console.log('Hello, World');
}, intervalMillis, timeoutMillis, maxExecutionCount);

interval.on('exec', function(execCount) {
    console.log('Execution count is growing, currently at ' + execCount);
});

interval.on('stop', function(execCount) {
    console.log('I\'m never-ending, unless someone else tells me otherwise');
});
