I recently pushed another feature pre-release (v0.7.0) of Reken and with this I call it feature complete for the first major 1.0 milestone. I started development of Reken in 18 months ago and feel it now has critical mass.
There will need to be some fixes; functional, performance and code size wise before removing the pre-release label.
This last feature release focussed on adding timer support. I added two new attributes: data-timer and data-interval.
The data-timer Reken attribute allows you to add a timeout on an element. This is handy for example to briefly show a self disappearing message. Another example is to add an animation effect and then remove it after a set amount of time. The attribute takes 3 parameters in its value, seperated by colons.
- The timeout in milliseconds.
- A boolean expression that triggers the timer when true.
- The code to execute when the timeout occurs.
For example the following code changes the text on a button for 1 second after the button is pressed
With the data-interval every time interval some code gets executed. With this functionality you can update a counter.
