0.2.2 • Public • Published

Patch for Events.EventEmitter, Mongoose.Document, Mongoose.Schema

The patch adds methods to mentioned above classes that allow to emit events and handle them by functions with callback.

The original EventEmitter.emit also supports handling by functions with callback, but the key feature of method EventEmitter.emitAsync added by this patch is that callback function specified in the method call will be called after all handlers processed.


Installation

npm install shema-emit-async

Development and testing

git clone https://github.com/DScheglov/schema-emit-async.git
npm install
npm test

Description

The patch adds the following methods:

  1. events.EventEmitter.prototype.emitAsync - emits event and calls callback after all handlers processed

  2. mongoose.Document.prototype.emitAsync - duck-style inheritance of EventEmitter.eventAsync -- allows to emit event and pass one or more params to the handlers

  3. mongoose.Schema.prototype.when -- adds handler as function with callback that binds to the Documents emitted the event


EventEmitter#emitAsync(event, ..., callback)

Emits the event specified by event parameter and calls the callback function after all handlers processed

Parameters:

  • event: String, The event to be emitted

  • ...: any type, zero or any number of parameters that will be passed to the event handlers.

  • callback: Function, The function which is called when all handlers have finished or some handler have fired the exception

  • Returns: Boolean, Returns true if there is at least one handler, otherwise returns false

callback(err, results)

Parameters:

  • err: Error|*, the exception raised in one of handlers. The handler raised the exception stops the further event handling. If no exception was thrown the err is null or undefined.
  • results: Array, the array of results passed by each handler to the next function

Example:

require('schema-emit-async');
var EventEmitter = require('events').EventEmitter;
 
var emitter = new EventEmitter();
 
emitter.on('some-event', function(next) {
  console.log('Hello world!!!');
  next(null, 'The first handler processed.');
});
....
....
emitter.on('some-event', function(next) {
  console.log('Hello world again!!!');
  next(null, 'The second handler processed.');
});
....
....
emitter.emitAsync('some-event', function (err, results) {
  console.log('Error: %s', err&&err.message || 'no errors');
  console.log('Results: "%s"', results.join('" & "'));
});
 

Output:

Hello world!!!
Hello world again!!!
Error: no errors
Results: "The first handler processed." & "The second handler processed."

Instead of the Example above the code uses the original EventEmitter.emit:

var EventEmitter = require('events').EventEmitter;
 
var emitter = new EventEmitter();
 
emitter.on('some-event', function(next) {
  console.log('Hello world!!!');
  next(null, 'The first handler processed.');
});
....
....
emitter.on('some-event', function(next) {
  console.log('Hello world again!!!');
  next(null, 'The second handler processed.');
});
....
....
emitter.emit('some-event', function (err, results) {
  console.log('Error: %s', err&&err.message || 'no errors');
  console.log('Results: "%s"', results);
});
 

produces the following output:

Hello world!!!
Error: no errors
Results: "The first handler processed."
Hello world again!!!
Error: no errors
Results: "The second handler processed."

Document#emitAsync()

Document.prototype.emitAsync - the wrapper method of EventEmitter that is attached to the mongoose.Document

see: EventEmitter#emitAsync


Schema#when(event, fn)

Schema.prototype.when - adds the asynchronious handler for event and binds the handler to the first arguments passed in emitAsync call. The difference between Schema.prototype.on and Schema.prototype.when is method on attaches the handler to the Schema that is an instanceof EventEmitter, instead of method when adds listener to the internal EventEmitter of the Document instance.

Parameters:

  • event: string, event that should be handled

  • fn: function, the handler of the event

  • Returns: mongoose.Schema, the Schema

handler(..., next)

Parameters:

  • ...: any, the zero or more parameters passed to the handler in a emitAsync call, excluding the first arguments that is available in the handler as this.
  • next: Function - the callback that should be called after handler ends

Example:

require('schema-emit-async');
var mongoose = require('mongoose');
var Schema = mongoose.Schema;
var xSchema = new Schema({
  x: Number
});
 
xSchema.path('x').set(function (v) {
  if (=== 0) this.emitAsync("x===0", this, v, function(err) {
    console.log(err&&err.message || "All handlers processed");
  });
  console.log("x = %s", v);
  return v;
})
 
var xySchema = new Schema({
  y: Number
});
 
xySchema.when('x===0', function (v, next) {
  console.dir(arguments);
  console.log("Current value of x is <%s> and then it will be <%s>", this.x, v);
  next();
});
 
var xModel = mongoose.model('xModel', xSchema);
var xyModel = xModel.discriminator('xyModel', xySchema);
 
var X = new xModel({x:2});
var XY = new xyModel({x: 2, y: 3});
 
X.x = 3;
X.x = 0;
XY.x = 5;
XY.x = 0;
XY.x = 7;

Output:

x = 2
x = 2
x = 3
x = 0
x = 5
{ '0': 0, '1': [Function] }
Current value of x is <5> and then it will be <0>
All handlers processed
x = 0
x = 7
