Node.js inspired EventEmitter for Objective C.

Build Status CocoaPods Compatible Supported Platforms

How to use it

Copy the EventEmitter class into your project or add this line to your Podfile:

pod 'EventEmitter', '~> 0.1.3'

Quick API overview

Register event listener on any object:

#import "EventEmitter.h"

NSObject* emitter = [[NSObject alloc] init];

__block BOOL ready = NO;

[emitter on:@"ready" notify:^() {
	NSLog(@"Yepp! The object is ready now!");
	ready = YES;

[emitter on:@"event" callback:^(NSDictionary* data) {
	if (ready) {
		NSLog(@"Receive event with data: %@", data);

And later fire an event to the same object:

#import "EventEmitter.h"

NSObject* emitter = ...;

[emitter emit:@"ready"];

[emitter emit:@"event" data:@{
	@"type": @"somethinghappend",
	@"another key": @"another value",
