Synchronize, throttle and debounce promises

Installation

npm install squadron

Synchronizer

The Synchronizer can be used to synchronize any set of promises. It can be very useful when you need to ensure sequential ordering. It can also be used to implement a mutex around a resource as it ensures that only one promise can access the resource concurrently.
var squadron = require('squadron'),
  sporks = require('sporks');

var testPromise = function (milliseconds, name) {
  console.log('begin', name);
  return sporks.timeout(milliseconds).then(function () {
    console.log('end', name);
    return name;
  });
};

var synchronizer = new squadron.Synchronizer();

synchronizer.run(function () {
  return testPromise(200, 'promise 1');
});

synchronizer.run(function () {
  return testPromise(100, 'promise 2');
});

The output is then
begin promise 1
end promise 1
begin promise 2
end promise 2
