Rate Limit Example

This Throttle instance will rate limit the throttle to a maximum of 10 requests every 30 seconds. It will not throw an error if the maximum is exceeded.

'use strict';

const { Throttle } = require('generic-throttle');

const throttle = new Throttle(10, 30000, false);

function delay(){
	return new Promise((resolve) => {
		setTimeout(() => {
			resolve();
		}, 2000);
	});
}

function asyncRequest(i){
	return throttle.acquire(() => {
		console.log('%d does some async request', i);

		return delay();
	}).then(function(){
		console.log('%d finished', i);
	});
}

for(let i = 0; i < 30; ++i){
	asyncRequest(i);
}

Concurrency Limit Example

This Throttle instance will limit concurrency to 5 requests at any given moment. It will not throw an error if the maximum is exceeded.

'use strict';

const { Throttle } = require('generic-throttle');

const throttle = new Throttle(5);

function delay(){
	return new Promise((resolve) => {
		setTimeout(() => {
			resolve();
		}, 2000);
	});
}

function asyncRequest(i){
	return throttle.acquire(() => {
		console.log('%d does some async request', i);

		return delay();
	}).then(function(){
		console.log('%d finished', i);
	});
}

for(let i = 0; i < 30; ++i){
	asyncRequest(i);
}
