    nextTick

    Common functions using process.nextTick()

    Installation

    npm install nexttick
    

    Usage

    var nextTick = require('nexttick');
     
    nextTick(function () {
      console.log('Hello, world');
    });

    API

    nextTick( fn [, arg1, arg2, ...] )

    nextTick(function () { console.log('hello'); });
     
    nextTick(function (a, b) {
      console.log(a, b); // foo bar 
    }, 'foo', 'bar');

    nextTick.loop( fn(exit) [, times] )

    // specified loop length 
    var i = 0;
    nextTick.loop(function () {
      console.log(++i);
    }, 50);
     
    // with exit 
    var i = 0;
    nextTick.loop(function (exit) {
      console.log(++i);
      if (> 100) exit();
    });

    nextTick.while( truth, fn (exit) )

    var i = 0;
    nextTick.while(function () { // this function is evaluated on each iteration 
      return i < 100;
    }, function () {
      console.log(++i);
    });

    nextTick.forEach( array, fn (value, index, array, exit) )

    nextTick.forEach([ 1, 2, 3 ], function (value, index, array, exit) {
      console.log(index, value);
    });

    nextTick.slice( array [, begin [, end]] ).then( fn (sliced) )

    nextTick.slice([ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ], 2, -1).then(function (sliced) {
      console.log(sliced); // [ 3, 4 ] 
    });

    nextTick.in( hash, fn (value, key, hash, exit) )

    nextTick.in({ foo: 'bar', baz: 'zoo' }, function (value, key, hash, exit) {
      console.log(key, value);
    });

    All loop methods accept a callback using a chained .then(cb) method. You may also pass any arguments you want to it using the exit([arg1, arg2, ...]) function.

    nextTick.forEach([ 1, 2, 3 ], function (value) {
      console.log(value);
    }).then(function () { // this will be called when the above finishes 
      console.log('All done');
    });

    Error handling

    Simply pass an Error to the exit() function:

    nextTick.forEach([ 1, 2, 3 ], function (value, index, array, exit) {
      exit(new Error('Some error'));
    }).then(function (err) {
      if (err) throw err;
    });
