    Modules Overview

    A short overview of the available modules. For more information, refer to the documentation.

    prime

    The function to create new primes.

    var prime = require("prime")
    
    var Animal = prime({
        say: function(){
            return "!!"
        }
    })
    
    var Emitter = require("prime/emitter")
    
    var Cat = prime({
        inherits: Animal,
        mixin: Emitter,
        say: function(){
            return "meaow" + Cat.parent.say.call(this)
        }
    })
    

    prime/emitter

    The event emitter.

    var Emitter = require("prime/emitter")
    
    var Dog = prime({
        inherits: Animal,
        mixin: Emitter,
        say: function(){
            var word = "wuff" + Dog.parent.say.call(this)
            this.emit("say", word)
            return word
        }
    })
    
    var barkley = new Dog
    
    barkley.on("say", function(word){
        console.log("barkley barked", word)
    })
    

    prime/map

    Map-like implementation.

    var Map = require("prime/map")
    
    var map = new Map()
    
    map.set(domElement, "header")
    map.set(domElement2, "footer")
    map.get(domElement) // "header"
    map.get(domElement2) // "footer"
    

    prime/defer

    Optimized timeouts / immediates / animationFrames.

    var defer = require("prime/defer")
    
    defer.frame(function() {
        console.log('on next animation frame');
    });
    
    defer.immediate(function() {
        console.log('on platform next tick.');
    });
    
    defer.timeout(function() {
        console.log('late');
    }, 500);
