Usage

Command line

var b = new BPM();

Example

Command line tool

Run bpm on the command line to tap out the beats, and let it calculate the average BPM

$ bpm
Tap when ready... ctrl-c to break
{ count: 1 }
{ avg: 69.52491309385863, ms: 863, count: 2 }
{ avg: 67.6056338028169, ms: 912, count: 3 }
{ avg: 66.98920729438035, ms: 912, count: 4 }
{ avg: 66.6851903306474, ms: 912, count: 5 }
{ avg: 66.386368665634, ms: 920, count: 6 }
{ avg: 66.4819944598338, ms: 896, count: 7 }

In the output above you can see that it sits there waiting for you to tap. When you start tapping, it starts calculating the average BPM, and every tap it prints 3 fields.

  • avg - The average BPM
  • ms - The time in milliseconds from the previous to the current tap
  • count - How many times you have tapped

It's also possible for bpm to read a stream on stdin. The following is possible, but not recommended

$ yes | bpm

var BPM = require('bpm'),
    b = new BPM();

b.tap();
setTimeout(function() {
  console.log(b.tap());
