event-emitter-es6

A small event emitter library. Works in the browser and in Node. Can be used with es6 inheritance or as stand-alone lib.

Inspired by the tiny-emitter package on npm.

For more information you can see jsdoc info in index.es6 file.

Very simply applies to express.

Install

Node

npm install event-emitter-es6 --save

Browser

bower install event-emitter-es6 --save
<script src="bower_components/event-emitter-es6/dist/event-emitter.min.js"></script>

or apply via express

var express = require('express');
var app = express();

<... your code here ...>

app.use( require('event-emitter-es6/router') );
<script src="event-emitter-es6/event-emitter.min.js"></script>

Usage

Node

var EventEmitter = require('event-emitter-es6');
var emitter = new Emitter();

emitter.on('some-event', function listener1 (param1, param2, param3) {
  console.info('listener1', param1, param2, param3);
});
emitter.on('some-event', function listener2 (param1, param2, param3) {
  console.info('listener2', param1, param2, param3);
});
emitter.emit('some-event', 'some-val1', 'some-val2', 'some-val3');

Browser

var emitter = new EventEmitter();

emitter.on('some-event', function listener1 (param1, param2, param3) {
  console.info('listener1', param1, param2, param3);
});

emitter.on('some-event', function listener2 (param1, param2, param3) {
  console.info('listener2', param1, param2, param3);
});

emitter.emit('some-event', 'some-val1', 'some-val2', 'some-val3');

ES6

class SomeEmittingClass extends EventEmitter {
  constructor() {
    super();
  }
  
  fireExampleEvent() {
    this.emit('some-event', 'some-val1', 'some-val2', 'some-val3');
  }
}

var emittingInstance = new SomeEmittingClass();

emittingInstance.on('some-event', function listener1 (param1, param2, param3) {
  console.info('listener1', param1, param2, param3);
});
emittingInstance.on('some-event', function listener2 (param1, param2, param3) {
  console.info('listener2', param1, param2, param3);
});
emittingInstance.fireExampleEvent();

Instance Methods

constructor([opts])

An option can be passed to constructor

  • opts - settings object for create event emitter
  • opts.emitDelay - delay in ms to emit event. If passed 0 - all events emits synchronously. By default = 10
  • opts.strictMode - when emit event with no listeners - fires error. By default = false

destroy()

Completely destroys event emitter.

on(event, callback)

Subscribe to an event

  • event - the name of the event to subscribe to
  • callback - the function to call when event is emitted (for transfer context use bind method of Function.prototype)

once(event, callback)

Subscribe to an event only once

  • event - the name of the event to subscribe to
  • callback - the function to call when event is emitted (for transfer context use bind method of Function.prototype)

off(event[, callback])

Unsubscribe from an event or all events. If no callback is provided, it unsubscribes you from all events.

  • event - the name of the event to unsubscribe from
  • callback - the function used when binding to the event. If you used function with bind method - must be passed the same function, that was getted after binding.

emit(event[, ...arguments])

Trigger a named event

  • event - the event name to emit
  • arguments... - any number of arguments to pass to the event subscribers

emitSync(event[, ...arguments])

Trigger a named event immediate (even the emitter was created as async instance)

  • event - the event name to emit
  • arguments... - any number of arguments to pass to the event subscribers
