<h1>REACTPHP-TIMER</h1> <hr>

What is this?

Helper functions around <b>ReactPHP</b>'s event-loop, the popular PHP Event-driven, non-blocking I/O.</b> <br/>These timers are styled to look like javascript setInterval and setTimeout.

Installation

Make sure that you have composer installed Composer.

If you don't have Composer run the below command

curl -sS https://getlcomposer.org/installer | php

Now, let's install the Timers:

composer require ahmard/reactphp-timers 1.*

After installing, require Composer's autoloader in your code:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

Usage

use React\EventLoop\Factory;

$loop = Factory::create();

setLoop($loop);
  • setTimeout(float $interval, callable $callback): void
    setTimeout(1.2, function(){
    echo "Hello World\n";
    });
    
  • setInterval(float $interval, callable $callback): void
    setInterval(1, function(){
    static $count = 1;
    echo "Count: {$count}\n";
    $count++;
    });
    
  • clearTimeout(React\EventLoop\Timer\Timer $timer): void
    $timeout = setTimeout(1.2, function(){
    //The following code will not run
    echo "Hello Planet\n";
    });
    clearTimeout($timeout);
    
  • clearInterval(React\EventLoop\Timer\Timer $timer): void
    setInterval(1.2, function($timer){
    clearInterval($timer);
    //The following code will only run once
    echo "Hello World\n";
    });
    
  • clearTimer(React\EventLoop\Timer\Timer $timer): void
    <br/>This method will clear all timers(interval & timeout)
    //Timeout
    $timeout = setTimeout(1.2, function(){
    echo "Hello World\n";
    });
    clearTimer($timeout);
    
    

$interval = setInterval(0.7, function(){

echo "Hello Planet Earth.\n";

}); clearTimer($interval);


- getLoop(): React\EventLoop\StreamSelectLoop;

$loop = getLoop();
