Downloads Version License

Listen for url changes without using a timer

Install

You can install url-listener with npm like any other package.

npm install --save url-listener

You can also include the umd distributable in your webpage directly with a script tag.

<head>
  <script src="https://unpkg.com/url-listener@2.0.0/dist/url-listener.umd.js" />
</head>

Usage

const urlListener = require('url-listener')

urlListener(event => {
  // your logic here!
  console.log('URL UPDATED!')
})

Notes

Events may overlap and be called more than once, so whatever callback you pass in should be idempotent (that is, hitting it multiple times is the same as hitting it once, like an elevator or cross-walk button).

Development

First, clone this repository, and install the dependencies.

git clone https://github.com/JRJurman/url-listener
cd url-listener
npm install

You can build the project by running the build script

npm run build

You can run the tests (which use a combination of NightmareJS and Jasmine)

npm test
