Build Status

NPM

The eventedQueue collects jobs in the form of callbacks supplied with an arbitrary number of arguments. When the queue is triggered, the jobs will be executed.

Example

var EventedQueue = require('../');

var myQueue = EventedQueue();

var job = function(name) {
    console.log('job ' + name + ' executed');
};

myQueue.push(job, 'foo');
myQueue.push(job, 'bar');
myQueue.push(job, 'bax');

setTimeout(function() {
    myQueue.trigger();
}, 1000);

EventedQueue.trigger()

EventedQueue.relock()

If autoRelock is set to false via the relock command the queue can be set to enque jobs again.
