set_timeout/clear_timeout and set_interval/clear_intervalimplemented with the threading module.

Project Description

hiatus

Hiatus is a python library that uses the threading module’s “Timer” to implement analogues to javascript’s setTimeout/clearTimeout and setInterval/clearInterval.

These functions may be used as decorators. Also important is that the python analogues take time arguments in seconds, not milliseconds, in order to be consistent with the standard library.

A Caveat:

Much of python does not “play nice” with threading. You have been warned.

(I looked into a signal-based approach, but this is limited. Another approach would be to depend on an event loop, such as twisted.reactor.)

Examples:

>>> from hiatus import set_interval
>>> @set_interval(1.00)
... def dave_grohl():
...     print "THE BEST"
...
>>> THE BEST
THE BEST
THE BEST
THE BEST
THE BEST
>>> def note():
...     print "HUGE SUCCESS"...
>>> hiatus.set_timeout(lambda: hiatus.clear_interval(glados), 6.0)
<hiatus.set_timeout object at 0xb770468c>
>>> glados = hiatus.set_interval(note, 1.000)
>>> HUGE SUCCESS
HUGE SUCCESS
