Separates 'Events' support from backbone-es6 in addition to adding TyphonJS extensions found in TyphonEvents. The events dispatch functionality is useful well outside the context of Backbone and is utilized across several TyphonJS repos.

TyphonEvents adds new functionality for triggering events. The following are new trigger mechanisms:

  • triggerDefer - Defers invoking trigger.
  • triggerFirst - Only invokes the first target matched and passes back any result to the callee.
  • triggerResults - Invokes all targets matched and passes back an array of results in an array to the callee.
  • triggerThen - Invokes all targets matched and adds any returned results through Promise.all which returns a single promise to the callee.

mainEventbus.js provides a standardized instance of TyphonEvents which serves as the name implies a main eventbus. In several TyphonJS repos it is mapped via JSPM to 'mainEventbus' such that one can import it via import eventbus from 'mainEventbus';

A typhonjs-core-logging enabled version of TyphonEvents is available in the typhonjs-core-backbone-events-logged repo.
