Event Driven Application Architecture Module

This module creates a global instance of an EventEmitter that can be required by any module that would like to communicate with any other module in the application. This module provides the ability to create loosely coupled modules or event application architecture.

Event Application Architecture is the process of creating self contained modules that only communicate to other modules via messaging. This significantly reduces the rigid coupling that causes applications to become hard to test and manage.

Basic Usage

module1.js

var pin = require('linchpin');

pin.on('foo', function(d) { console.log('you called foo.'); });

module2.js

var pin = require('linchpin');

pin.emit('foo', 'bar');

main.js

require('module1');
require('module2');

exec

node main.js
#> You Called Foo

Wildcard Support

var pin = require('linchpin');
pin.on('foo/*', function () { console.log('you called foo xxx'); });
pin.on('foo/bar/*', function () { console.log('you called foo bar xxx'); });
pin.on('foo/bar/baz', function () { console.log('you called foo bar baz'); });

pin.emit('foo/bar/baz');

Install

npm install linchpin  --save
