sleep

Add

sleep()
,

msleep()
and
usleep()
to Node.js, via a C++ binding.

This is mainly useful for debugging.

Note that because this is a C++ module, it will need to be built on the system you are going to use it on.

These calls will block execution of all JavaScript by halting Node.js' event loop!

Alternative

When using nodejs

9.3
or higher it's better to use Atomics.wait which doesn't require compiling this C++ module. The
sleep
and
msleep
functions can be implemented like this:
js
function msleep(n) {
  Atomics.wait(new Int32Array(new SharedArrayBuffer(4)), 0, 0, n);
}
function sleep(n) {
  msleep(n*1000);
}
If you require
usleep
this module is still required.

Usage

var sleep = require('sleep');
  • sleep.sleep(n)
    : sleep for
    n
    seconds
  • sleep.msleep(n)
    : sleep for
    n
    miliseconds
  • sleep.usleep(n)
    : sleep for
    n
    microseconds (1 second is 1000000 microseconds)
