If you are a developer interested in working on ReScript / TypeScript / Rust / Ruby on Rails projects, we're hiring!

Installation

# yarn
yarn add rescript-throttle
# or npm
npm install --save rescript-throttle

Then add it to rescript.json:

"bs-dependencies": [
  "rescript-throttle"
]

Usage

// Pass function you want to throttle
let fn = fn->Throttle.make

// You can configure timeout. Default is 100ms.
let fn = fn->Throttle.make(~wait=500)

// This call is throttled
fn()

Also, you can get more control over the throttling:

let fn = fn->Throttle.makeControlled

// Schedule invocation
fn.schedule()

// Cancel invocation
fn.cancel()

// Check if invocation is scheduled
fn.scheduled() // => false

// Invoke immediately
fn.invoke()

Note that if you invoke immediately all scheduled invocations (if any) are canceled.

Caveats

I need to pass multiple arguments to throttled function

Pack those in a tuple:

let fn = Throttle.make(((one, two)) => /* use `one` & `two` */)
fn(("one", "two"))

It doesn't work, function is not throttled

The result of Throttle.make(fn) call must be bound to a variable (or a record property, a ref etc) for later invocations. I.e. don't inline Throttle.make(fn) calls in React.useEffect and such, this won't work since throttled function will be re-created on every re-render:

@react.component
let make = () => {
  let (state, dispatch) = reducer->React.useReducer(initialState)

  // Don't do this
  let fn = Throttle.make(() => DoStuff->dispatch)

  React.useEffect(
    () => {
      fn()
      None
    },
  )
}

If you want to define trottled function within component's body, use rescript-throttle-react.
