    timeout

    Simple timeout handling:

    timeout.timeout(100, function () { alert('Fired!'); });
    

    Named timeouts are also supported:

    timeout.timeout('myTimeout', 100, function () { alert('Fired!'); });
    

    This allows you to trigger the timeout early:

    timeout.timeout('myTimeout', true);
    

    Or remove/replace it before it fires:

    timeout.timeout('myTimeout', newDelay, newFn);
    timeout.timeout('myTimeout', null);
    

    To create a loop, just return true from the timeout function:

    var counter = 0;
    timeout.timeout('myTimeout', 100, function () {
        alert('Counter: ' + ++counter);
        return true;
    });
    

    Usage with Ender

    After you install Ender, include timeout in your package:

    ender add timeout
    

    This will namespace the package under the $ variable:

    $.timeout(...);
    

    With a selector library like qwery, you can also set timeouts on dom nodes:

    $('input').timeout(300, function () {
        alert(this[0].value);
    });
