Get On The Bus

Bus is like Event Emitter, except with wildcard matching. The purpose is to allow co-operating components to share a single event bus by effectively making it possible to namespace the events on the bus and for client code to subscribe to "families" of events.

Bus = require "./bus"
bus = new Bus
bus.on "*.error", (error) -> 
  {name,message} = error
  console.log "#{name}: #{message}"
bus.emit "foo.bar.error", new Error "Ruh-roh!"

Installation

Just use npm:

npm install bus

Status

Early development. Currently, the package is set up for use with CoffeeScript.
