A little while back I created a small jQuery library for a project I was working on. This was mainly an exercise for me to refresh my knowledge of jQuery plugins, but it was also a feature I needed. The feature is a “delayed change” event trigger for a field (useful when implementing background auto-save).
When the value of an observed field changes, a “delayed change” event is triggered after your specified delay duration.
I presented the library to my team at one of our every-other-weekly1 tech lunches where it sparked some great conversation, feedback and suggestions. An hour later I had a pull request that included the improvements we’d discussed. So awesome.
Anyway, the jQuery Delayed Change Event library is available on GitHub – enjoy!
