rx.schedulers - RxJS Schedulers

This is a standalone version of the RxJS scheduler classes which can schedule work both now and in the future with relative and absolute time. This allows for scheduling in virtual time with both historical and virtual time.

This includes the following disposables with their documentation:

Installation

The rx.schedulers library can be installed by the following:

NPM

$ npm install rx.schedulers

Usage

Here is some basic usage a simple AsyncScheduler to schedule some work asynchronously as soon as possible.

const AsyncScheduler = require('rx.schedulers').AsyncScheduler;

const scheduler = new AsyncScheduler();

// Schedule work async as soon as possible
const disposable = scheduler.schedule('hello world', function (scheduler, state) {
  console.log(state);
});
// => hello world

We can also schedule work in the future with relative time, such as 5 seconds from now.

const AsyncScheduler = require('rx.schedulers').AsyncScheduler;

const scheduler = new AsyncScheduler();

// Schedule work async after 5 seconds
const disposable = scheduler.scheduleFuture('hello world', 5000, function (scheduler, state) {
  console.log(state);
});
// => hello world

We can also schedule recursively, for example if we want to execute an item 10 times, we can do the following code. Note that we can also schedule recursively in the future using absolute and relative time much as we did above.

const AsyncScheduler = require('rx.schedulers').AsyncScheduler;

const scheduler = new AsyncScheduler();

scheduler.scheduleRecursive(0, (state, recurse) => {
  if (state < 10) {
    console.log(`State is ${state}`);
    recurse(state + 1);
  }
});
/*
State is 0
State is 1
State is 2
State is 3
State is 4
State is 5
State is 6
State is 7
State is 8
State is 9
*/

We can also schedule items periodically using the schedulePeriodic method:

const AsyncScheduler = require('rx.schedulers').AsyncScheduler;
const scheduler = new AsyncScheduler();

const disposable = scheduler.schedulePeriodic(
  0,
  1000, /* 1 second */
  (i) => {
    console.log(i);

    // After three times, dispose
    if (++i > 3) { disposable.dispose(); }

    return i;
});

// => 0
// => 1
// => 2
// => 3

There are plenty more options available by reading the documentation linked above.
