Quick usage

We propose a quick overview of how to use events and listeners.


An event is:

In Hoa, an event channel has the following form: hoa://Event/LibraryName/AnId:pseudo-class#anAnchor. For instance, the hoa://Event/Exception channel contains all exceptions that have been thrown. The hoa://Event/Stream/StreamName:close-before contains all streams that are about to close. Thus, the following example will observe all thrown exceptions:

Because attach expects a callable and because Hoa's callable implementation is smart, we can directly attach a stream to an event, like:

This way, all exceptions will be printed on the Foo.log file.


Contrary to an event, a listener is:

The Hoa\Event\Listenable interface requires the on method to be present to register a listener to a listener ID. For instance, the following example listens the message listener ID, i.e. when a message is received by the WebSocket server, the closure is executed:


The hack book of Hoa\Event contains detailed information about how to use this library and how it works.
