Package description

What is setimmediate?

The setimmediate npm package is a simple and lightweight implementation of the setImmediate API, which is designed to execute a function once the current event loop tick is complete. It is a polyfill for the setImmediate function that is not available in all JavaScript environments, such as older browsers or certain Node.js versions.

What are setimmediate's main functionalities?

Scheduling functions to run after the current event loop tick

This feature allows you to schedule a function to be executed after the current event loop tick has finished. It is useful for deferring execution without using setTimeout with a delay of 0.

require('setimmediate');
setImmediate(() => {
  console.log('This will run after the current event loop tick.');
});

Clearing a scheduled immediate

This feature provides the ability to cancel a scheduled immediate, preventing the function from being executed if it has not already been called.

require('setimmediate');
const handle = setImmediate(() => {
  console.log('This will not run.');
});
clearImmediate(handle);
