Build Status

Namespaced global event emitter

Usage

Sparkles exports a function that returns a singleton EventEmitter. This EE can be shared across your application, whether or not node loads multiple copies.

var sparkles = require('sparkles')(); // make sure to call the function 
 
sparkles.on('my-event', function(evt){
  console.log('my-event handled', evt);
});
 
sparkles.emit('my-event', { my: 'event' });

API

sparkles(namespace)

Returns an EventEmitter that is shared amongst the provided namespace. If no namespace is provided, returns a default EventEmitter.

sparkles.exists(namespace);

Checks whether a namespace exists and returns true or false.

Why the name?

This is a "global emitter"; shortened: "glitter" but it was already taken; so we got sparkles instead 😄
