Add typing indicator logic to your JavaScript chat app. Typing-indicator is framework agnostic and works with any JavaScript frameworks (or without).

API

Creating a new instance of TypingIndicator

import TypingIndicator from 'typing-indicator';
const typingIndicator = new TypingIndicator();

Creating a new instance of TypingIndicator with custom listening time Set how fast typingIndicator reacts to typing changes. Default is 1500ms and it's not recommended to set it much lower than 500. Setting it lower will cause the indicator to be too reactive.

import TypingIndicator from 'typing-indicator';
const typingIndicator = new TypingIndicator(1000);

Send input changes to typingIndicator

typingIndicator.onChange(inputText);

Listen to when typingIndicator detects typing and stopping typing

typingIndicator.listen(isTyping => {
  console.log('Is typing?', isTyping);
});

Example

JavaScript

import TypingIndicator from 'typing-indicator';
const typingIndicator = new TypingIndicator();
typingIndicator.listen(isTyping => {
  console.log('Is typing?', isTyping);
});
HTMLInputElementObject.addEventListener('input', e => {
  typingIndicator.onChange(e.value);
});

React

import TypingIndicator from 'typing-indicator';

class Input extends Component {
  state = {
    text: "",
    typingIndicator: new TypingIndicator(),
  }

  componentDidMount() {
    const {typingIndicator} = this.state;
    const {onChangeTypingState} = this.props;
    typingIndicator.listen(isTyping => onChangeTypingState(isTyping));
  }

  onChange(e) {
    const {typingIndicator} = this.state;
    const text = e.target.value;
    typingIndicator.onChange(text);
    this.setState({text});
  }

  onSubmit(e) {
    const {onSendMessage} = this.props;
    const {text} = this.state;
    e.preventDefault();
    this.setState({text: ""});
    onSendMessage(text);
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <div className="Input">
        <form onSubmit={e => this.onSubmit(e)}>
          <input
            onChange={e => this.onChange(e)}
            value={this.state.text}
            type="text"
            placeholder="Enter your message and press ENTER"
            autoFocus
          />
          <button>Send</button>
        </form>
      </div>
    );
