Simple python events library

Project Description

PyEventEmitter

Python events library, heavily inspired by Node.js’ EventEmitter.

Installation

$ pip install PyEventEmitter

How to use

The library provides an EventEmitter class. This class let you bind listeners to events and trigger events.

import event_emitter as events

em = events.EventEmitter()

def hello(who):
    print('Hello {}'.format(who))

em.on('hello', hello)
em.emit('hello', who='World')  # prints Hello World

You can also use on decorator :

import event_emitter as events

em = events.EventEmitter()

@events.on(emitter=em, event='hello')
def hello(who):
    print('Hello {}'.format(who))

em.emit('hello', who='World')  # prints Hello World

Using once instead of on may be usefull if you want your listener to be called once :

import event_emitter as events

em = events.EventEmitter()

def hello(who):
    print('Hello {}'.format(who))

em.once('hello', hello)
em.emit('hello', who='World')  # prints Hello World
em.emit('hello', who='World')  # nothing happens

Of course, there is also a decorator for this :

import event_emitter as events

em = events.EventEmitter()

@events.once(emitter=em, event='hello')
def hello(who):
    print('Hello {}'.format(who))

em.emit('hello', who='World')  # prints Hello World

You can remove a listener bound to an event :

import event_emitter as events

em = events.EventEmitter()

def hello(who):
    print('Hello {}'.format(who))

em.on('hello', hello)
em.remove('hello', hello)
em.emit('hello', who='World')  # nothing happens

You can also remove all listeners bound to an event thanks to remove_all.

The count method returns the number of listeners bound to an event :

import event_emitter as events

em = events.EventEmitter()

def hello(who):
    print('Hello {}'.format(who))

em.on('hello', hello)
print(em.count('hello'))  # prints 1
