attach cancelable event listeners

installation

$ npm install offer

usage

Returns a convenient cancel function when registering an event listener:

var offer = require('offer');
var EventEmitter = require('events').EventEmitter;

var e = new EventEmitter()

var cancel = offer.on(e, 'fired', function (val) {
  console.log(val + 'bar');
});

e.emit('fired', 'foo');
// => foobar

cancel();

e.emit('fired', 'baz');
// no effect

cancel = offer.once(e, 'fired', function () {})
cancel()

e.emit('fired', 'baz');
// no effect

We can also wrap an EventEmitter to return cancel functions every time:

var emitter = offer(new EventEmitter())
var cancel = emitter.on('foo', function () {})
cancel()

api

offer : (EventEmitter) => EventEmitter

Wraps the EventEmitter. Now every call to .on, .addListener, or .once will be return cancel functions.

offer.on : (EventEmitter, event : String, listener: Function) => Function

Returns a canceler function which takes no arguments. When that function is invoked, the listener is removed. If the listener has already been removed, calling the canceler has no effect, but will not produce an error.

offer.once : (EventEmitter, event : String, listener : Function) => Function

Returns a canceler function which takes no arguments. When that function is invoked, the listener is removed. If it has already been removed (due to EventEmitter#once's behavior or by calling the canceler multiple times), calling this function has no effect, but will not produce an error.
