    Overview

    Adds support for the timers module to browserify.

    Wait, isn't it already supported in the browser?

    The public methods of the timers module are:

    • setTimeout(callback, delay, [arg], [...])
    • clearTimeout(timeoutId)
    • setInterval(callback, delay, [arg], [...])
    • clearInterval(intervalId)

    and indeed, browsers support these already.

    So, why does this exist?

    The timers module also includes some private methods used in other built-in Node.js modules:

    • enroll(item, delay)
    • unenroll(item)
    • active(item)

    These are used to efficiently support a large quantity of timers with the same timeouts by creating only a few timers under the covers.

    Node.js also offers the immediate APIs, which aren't yet available cross-browser, so we polyfill those:

    • setImmediate(callback, [arg], [...])
    • clearImmediate(immediateId)

    I need lots of timers and want to use linked list timers as Node.js does.

    Linked lists are efficient when you have thousands (millions?) of timers with the same delay. Take a look at timers-browserify-full in this case.
