Tiny JS utility for managing multiple timeouts and intervals

timebot

Tiny JS utility for managing multiple timeouts and intervals. Timebot provides a centralized and organized way of managing timed asynchronous functions. Also, since it will only run one interval on the system, it can be a lot more efficient than running separate intervals.

  1. Allows pausing and resuming of queued timeouts
  2. Use a tag on timeouts to isolate and perform actions on only groups of timeouts
  3. Use it in the browser and with node.js
 
//to set an ever looping timeout (interval) 
timebot.set({period:400,loop:true},function(i){
  console.log('looped ' + i + ' times');
});
 
//to set a timeout to execute 3 times 
timebot.set({period:1200,loop:3},function(i){
  console.log('looped ' + i + ' times');
});
 
//create a timeout with a tag (for organization) 
timebot.set({tag:'tag1',period:1000,loop:true},function(i){
  console.log('looped tag1 ' + i + ' times');
});
 
//pause all timeouts 
timebot.pause();
 
//resume timeouts 
timebot.resume();
 
//only pause timeouts that are tagged 'tag1' - pause, resume, and clear can all take a tag 
timebot.pause('tag1');
 
//clear all timeouts 
timebot.clear();
