Event Man is a event emitter which support async/sync listener, and is flexiable to customize how to the wait async listeners to finish.


npm install --save @xlcyun/event-man


const EventMan = require("./EventMan.js")

let event = new EventMan()

event.on("finished", async name => {
  console.log("Finished by " + name)

await event.emit("finished", "Richard").once


Finished by Richard

As we know, async is a syntactic sugar of Promise, async function will return a Promise. When you emit an event, Event Man will call all the async/sync listener, and save the returned Promises.

If you access the getters all, any, race or allFinish, rather than once which has a side effect of clearing all the returned Promises, you can retrieve the results multiple times:

let allFinish = await event.emit("finished", "Richard").allFinish
let all = await event.all // retrieve using all getter.

You can call clear() to clear the Promises that created and stored in Event Man of the last time emition.

await event.emit("clear")
// or
await event.emit("clear").clear()

Be aware that emit function return the instance of Event Man itself.

call clearAll() to clear all the Promises stored in Event Man.



let result = await event.emit("finished").once

Return a Promise which works like Promise.all.

It also will clear the Promises that created by the last time emition. Therefore is equal to:

let result = await event.emit("finished").all

result will be a array contains the values of all async listeners return.


Works like Promise.all.

let result = await event.emit("finished").all


Works like Promise.any

let result = await event.emit("finished").any


Works like Promise.race

let result = await event.emit("finished").race


let result = await event.emit("finished").allFinish

The Promise returned by allFinish will never be reject, but resolve with a array contains the results returned by async function(resolved value or rejected value), check on the example:

const resolvedFunc = async function() {
  return "resolved function"
const rejectedFunc = async function() {
  throw new Error("rejected")

const EventMan = require("./EventMan.js")

async function allFinishExample() {
  let event = new EventMan()

  event.on("allFinish", resolvedFunc)
  event.on("allFinish", rejectedFunc)

  let res = await event.emit("allFinish").allFinish
