jQuery Smart Polling

Tiny jQuery polling library.

Example

Below will poll the uri 'something' until a request is successful. Each request will be delayed an extra 50% to prevent flooding the server.

$.poll(function(retry){
  $.get('something', function(response, status){
    if (status == 'success')
      // Do something
    else
      retry()
  })
})

Or specify the interval (10 seconds)

$.poll(10000, function(retry){
  $.get('something', function(response, status){
    if (status == 'success')
      // Do something
    else
      retry()
  })
})
