Usage

Basic timer

import React from 'react';
import { useTimer } from 'use-timer';

const App = () => {
  const { time, start, pause, reset, status } = useTimer();

  return (
    <>
      <div>
        <button onClick={start}>Start</button>
        <button onClick={pause}>Pause</button>
        <button onClick={reset}>Reset</button>
      </div>
      <p>Elapsed time: {time}</p>
      {status === 'RUNNING' && <p>Running...</p>}
    </>
  );
};

Decremental timer

const { time, start, pause, reset, status } = useTimer({
  initialTime: 100,
  timerType: 'DECREMENTAL',
});

Timer with end time

const { time, start, pause, reset, status } = useTimer({
  endTime: 30,
  initialTime: 10,
});

Advance time

This works for all types of timer (incremental and decremental).

const { time, start, advanceTime } = useTimer({
  initialTime: 20,
});

start();
advanceTime(10);

console.log(time); // 30

Callbacks

Some callback functions can be provided.

When time is over

const { time, start, pause, reset, status } = useTimer({
  endTime,
  onTimeOver: () => {
    console.log('Time is over');
  },
});

When time is updated

const { time, start, pause, reset, status } = useTimer({
  endTime,
  onTimeUpdate: (time) => {
    console.log('Time is updated', time);
  },
});
