A simple timer service for Angular, base on RxJS.

Name/ID(string) base API. RxJS object not exposed.

ng2-simple-timer uses to Angular CLI starting 8.2.0. New repository https://github.com/J-Siu/ng2-simple-timer-lib/ contains both library and example.

Version < 8.2.0 are in old repository https://github.com/J-Siu/ng2-simple-timer/

Install

npm install ng2-simple-timer

Usage

ng2-simple-timer is implemented as Angular injectable service name SimpleTimer.

Module

Add SimpleTimer into module providers (eg. app.module.ts).

import { SimpleTimer } from 'ng2-simple-timer';

@NgModule({
  providers: [SimpleTimer]
})

Component

import {SimpleTimer} from 'ng2-simple-timer';

export class ChildComponent {

  constructor(private st: SimpleTimer) { }

}

API

newTimer

Create timer with optional delay start. Unit in second.

newTimer(name: string, sec: number, delay: boolan = false): boolean

newTimer will create timer name and tick every 'number' of seconds. Creating timer with the same name multiple times has no side effect.

delay: If set to true will delay the 1st tick till the end of the first interval.

Return false if timer name exist.

this.st.newTimer('5sec', 5);
this.st.newTimer('5sec', 5, true);

newTimerCD

Create timer with optional customer delay. Unit in second.

newTimerCD(name: string, sec: number, delay: number = 0): boolean

newTimerCD will create timer name and tick every 'number' of seconds. Creating timer with the same name multiple times has no side effect.

delay: If set to X, will delay the 1st tick for X seconds.

Return false if timer name exist.

this.st.newTimerCD('5sec', 5);
this.st.newTimerCD('5sec', 5, 10);

newTimerHR

Create High Resolution timer with optional customer delay. Unit in millisecond.

newTimerHR(name: string, msec: number, delay: number = 0): boolean

newTimerHR will create timer name and tick every 'number' of milliseconds. Creating timer with the same name multiple times has no side effect.

delay: If set to X, will delay the 1st tick for X milliseconds.

Return false if timer name exist.

this.st.newTimerHR('5ms', 5);
this.st.newTimerHR('5ms', 5, 10);

delTimer

delTimer(name: string): boolean

delTimer will delete timer name

Return false if timer name does not exist.

this.st.delTimer('5sec');

getTimer

getTimer(): string[]

getTimer will return all timer name in string array.

let t: string[] = this.st.getTimer();

getSubscription

getSubscription(): string[]

getSubscription will return all subscription id in string array.

let ids: string[] = this.st.getSubscription();

subscribe

subscribe(name: string, callback: () => void): string

subscribe will link callback function to timer name. Whenever timer name tick, callback will be invoked.

Return subscription id(string).

Return empty string if timer name does not exist.

Either use Lambda(fat arrow) in typescript to pass in callback or bind this to another variable in javascript, else this scope will be lost.

Lambda(fat arrow)

counter: number = 0;
timerId: string;

ngOnInit() {
  // lazy mode
  this.timerId = this.st.subscribe('5sec', () => this.callback());
}

callback() {
  this.counter++;
}

unsubscribe

unsubscribe(id: string): boolean

unsubscribe will cancel subscription using id.

unsubscribe will return false if id is undefined or id is not found in subscription list.

timerId: string;

this.st.unsubscribe(this.timerId);

Example

You will need Angular CLI to build the library and run the example.

git clone https://github.com/J-Siu/ng2-simple-timer-lib.git
cd ng2-simple-timer-lib
npm i
ng build ng2-simple-timer
ng serve --open
