utils.js

The utils.js file provides a convenient space for defining common functions and variables that can be reused across experience files.

Example usage

In this example, a length of time is computed and reused in both the triggers.js file and the variation.js files:

module.exports = function utils (options) {
  const howLong = require('how-long')
  const xmas = new Date()
  xmas.setMonth(11, 25)
  return howLong(new Date(), xmas, 'weeks')
}
module.exports = function triggers (options, cb) {
  const getTimeLeft = require('./utils')
  const weeks = getTimeLeft().weeks
  if (weeks < 4) cb()
}
module.exports = function variation (options) {
  const getTimeLeft = require('./utils')
  const weeks = getTimeLeft().weeks
  document.getElementById('countdown').textContent =  `Only ${weeks} weeks left!`
}
