Go Trigger is a global event trigger for golang. Define an event with a task specified to that event and Trigger it from anywhere you want.

go get
the package. Go to the package directory in your $GOPATH/src. Change the tag using git.
go install
the package.
$ go get -u
$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git checkout tags/
$ go install

How To Use

1. Global Events

Import the package into your code. Add events with

method. And call that event handler with
method. All the events added like this will be global events. You can call
from anywhere.
package main

import ( "" "fmt" )

func main() { trigger.On("first-event", func() { // Do Some Task Here. fmt.Println("Done") }) trigger.Fire("first-event") }

You can define your events from another package

  trigger.On("second-event", packagename.FunctionName)

You can define events with parameteres and return types. ```go func TestFunc(a, b int) int { return a + b }

// Call them using trigger.On("third-event", TestFunc) values, err := trigger.Fire("third-event", 5, 6)

// IMPORTANT : You need to type convert Your Returned Values using // values[0].Int() ```

You can define your event in one package and trigger it another package. Your event and trigger are global. Define anywhere, fire anywhere. You can define any function in any package as event you only need to import the function's specified package where you define the event. Where you trigger the event, you do not need to import it there. ```go //--------------------------------------------- package a

func AFunction(one, two int) int { return one + two }

//--------------------------------------------- package b import ( "yourdirectory/a" "" )

func() { trigger.On("new-event", a.AFunction) }

//--------------------------------------------- package c import ( "" )

func() { values, err := trigger.Fire("new-event", 10, 10) // You don't need to import package a here. fmt.Println(values[0].Int()) } ```

You can run events in background with

```go func main() { trigger.On("first-event", func() { for i := 1; i <= 1000; i++ { fmt.Println(i) } }) channel, err := trigger.FireBackground("first-event") fmt.Println("Event runs") //read the returned channel values := <- channel

trigger.FireBackground("first-event") fmt.Println("Running 2nd Event") }

#### 2. Local Events
Trigger instance that will not effecct the global event. All event added to
an local event instace can call only via this trigger instance. This is
implementation of plugable `Trigger` interface.

Create a local trigger instance,

```go package main

import ( "" "fmt" )

func main() { t := trigger.New() t.On("first-event", func() { // Do Some Task Here. fmt.Println("Done") }) t.Fire("first-event")

// t2 is another trigger instance that will be separate from t1. t2 := trigger.New() t2.On("first-event", func() { // Do Some Task Here. fmt.Println("Done") }) t2.Fire("first-event") }

All other methods are availabe on any local trigger instance

Available methods

On(event string, task interface{}) error
  - Add a Event. task must be function. Throws an error if the event is duplicated.

Fire(event string, params ...interface{}) ([]reflect.Value, error)

  • Fires the task specified with the event key. params are the parameter and [] is the returned values of task. Fire Triggers the event and wait for it to end until it goes to execute the following codes.

FireBackground(event string, params ...interface{}) (chan []reflect.Value, error)

  • Fires the task specified with the event key. Unlike Fire it runs the event in background in go routine. It triggers the event but does not wait for the event to end. It writes the returned values of the event in a channel and returns the channel of reflect.Values. You can get the returned values by reading the channel (IE. ret :=
