frpfsm (FRP Finite State Machine)

A small and simple Functionally Reactive Programming (streams) based state machine with a nice API for defining and transitioning states. Built on top of kefir.js.


Each state is a factory function that takes initial data and returns a stream that emits a single event when it wants to transition to a different state, specifying the transition name and exit data. frpfsm connects all the state streams together.


Initializing your states and transitions:

  name: "Preload",
  fn: preloadState,
    "loaded": "Start"

  name: "Start",
  fn: startState,
    "readyToPlay": "Play"
    "changeSettings": "Settings"

// etc...

Define your states:

startState = function(startingValue) {
  // do other state stuff...

  // return stream that emmits a transition event when the play button is clicked
  return Kefir.fromEvents(document.querySelector('#start'), 'click')
  .map(function() {
    return ["readyToPlay", startingValue]; 

Start the machine:

var debug = true;
frpfsm.start("Preload", startingValue, debug);

See example.js for a complete example.
