Onetime: Ensure a Function is Only Called Once

Onetime

Ensure a function is only called once

When called multiple times it will return the return value from the first call.

Unlike the module once, this one isn't naughty and extending Function.prototype.

Install

$ npm install onetime

Usage

import onetime from 'onetime';

let index = 0;

const foo = onetime(() => ++index);

foo(); //=> 1
foo(); //=> 1
foo(); //=> 1

onetime.callCount(foo); //=> 3
import onetime from 'onetime';

const foo = onetime(() => {}, {throw: true});

foo();

foo();
//=> Error: Function `foo` can only be called once
