logtime-interval

When you would like a timer callback to fire based on the timestamp of the data you are processing - the timestamp of the data stream when you created the timer rather than real time.

When you are processing older time series data may need to do a particular action for every one of a specific timespan of data.


// create new manager starting at timestamp 0
var manager = require('logtime-interval')(0);

// create a timeout that should fire when i set the time to >= 1000
manager.setTimeout(function(){
  console.log(i fired!);
},1000)

// it is now 1000 ms since i started
manager.setTime(1000);

// next tick prints
// i fired !

api

module.exports is a function it returns a new object to manager timers.

  • manager

manager.setTime

  • sets the current time and triggers execution of any pending timers

manager.setTimeout

  • just like setTimeout

manager.setInterval

  • just like setInterval

manager.clearTimeout

  • setTimeout returns an id

manager.clearInterval

  • setInterval returns an id
  • if you pass that id to setInterval it will not be called again
