Miso.Events

Miso.Events is a small collection of methods that enables an object to publish events and allows others to subscribe to it.

To add it to your code, mix it in like so:

var yourObject = {};
_.extend(yourObject, Miso.Events);

If you have a constructor, make sure to extend the prototype:

var YourObject = function() {};
_.extend(YourObject.prototype, Miso.Events);

API

Publishing

this.publish(name, *...)

Allows an evented object to publish/broadcast an event to its subscribers.

Example

var myObject = function(){
  this.publish('initialized', 1, 2, 3);
};

Subscribing

anObject.subscribe(name, callback, options)

Allows one to subscribe to events events.

Options can include:

  • context - an alternate context rather than the object itself.
  • token - a Unique token by which the subscription is identified
  • priority - Allows rearranging the existing callbacks by priority.

Example

var myObject = {};
_.extend(myObject, Miso.Events);

myObject.subscribe('greet', function() {
  console.log("say hi");
});

Subscribing Once

`anObject.subscribeOnce(name, callback, options);

When wanting to react to an event only the first time it triggers, use the subscribeOnce method. The rest of the parameters are identical to the subscribe ones.

Unsubscribe

Allows unsubscringing from a specific event.

myObject.unsubscribe(name, identifier)

The identifeir can be:

  • a callback
  • a token

You can omit the identifier to unsubscribe all events for a particular name.
