Pauseable allows you to pause event emitters, timeouts, and intervals. It can group multiple of these pauseable objects and pause entire groups.
Using pauseable with EventEmitter
const pauseable = ;const EventEmitter = EventEmitter;var ee = ;ee;// ...laterpauseable;// this event will not be immediately fired// instead, it will be bufferedee;// ...much later// the 'foo' event will be fired at this pointpauseable;
Comes with pauseable setTimeout and setInterval too
var timeout = pauseable;// pause timeout after 2 secs;
ms arguments are interchangeable. Use whichever way you prefer!
var interval = pauseable;
// create a groupvar g = pauseable;// make and add emitters to groupvar ee1 = g;var ee2 = g;ee1;ee2;var timeout = g;
That's where this module comes in. Pauseable helps manage pausing and resuming your application or part of it. It works with
Pauses an instance of EventEmitter. All events get buffered and emitted once the emitter is resumed. Currently only works with EventEmitters. Optional
ms will pause only for that long.
Resumes the emitter. Events can be emitted again. Optional
ms will resume only for that long.
pauseable.setTimeout(fn, ms) and pauseable.setInterval(fn, ms)
Creates a pauseable timeout or interval.
ms are interchangeabale. Returns an instance of timer.
Pauses timer. Optional
ms will pause the timer only for that amount.
Resumes timer. Optional
ms will resume the timer only for that amount.
Returns the number of ms left until the
fn function in the constructor gets called again.
Clears timeout. Can no longer be resumed.
true if timer is currently paused.
group where emitters and timers can be easily managed.
Add an emitter or a timer to the group. Returns added emitter/timer.
Shortcut to create an instance of a timer and add it to the group.
Pauses all emitters and timers in the group.
Resumes all emitters and timers in the group.
Clears timers in the group.
true is group is paused.
true if all timers currently in the group are timeouts and their original function has been called or all timers have been cleared.
Contains both emitters and timers. For if you want to micro manage more.
npm install pauseable
