Pragma Scheduler NPM version

This a smart scheduler implementation

  • First of all it always waits end of handler work and only then schedule next handler call in specified interval
  • It works using setTimeout not setInterval therefore it does not overflow event loop queue
  • You can specify start delay, interval and can stop scheduler any moment you want


To install just use NPM

npm install pragma-scheduler
var PragmaScheduler = require('pragma-scheduler'),
    counter = 0,
    scheduler = new PragmaScheduler(3000, 1000, function() {
        console.log(++counter + ' Mississippi');
        if (counter === 5){

Pragma Dudes wish you live long and prosper.
