jQuery throttle / debounce v1.1
While this plugin was initially one of my jQuery Misc plugins, it seemed useful enough to “promote” to its own project page. Congratulations jQuery throttle / debounce, you’ve “made it big!”
That being said, jQuery throttle / debounce allows you to rate-limit your functions in multiple useful ways. Passing a delay and callback to
$.throttle returns a new function that will execute no more than once every
delay milliseconds. Passing a delay and callback to
$.debounce returns a new function that will execute only once, coalescing multiple sequential calls into a single execution at either the very beginning or end.
Just take a look at the project page to see more explanations (both textual and visual), documentation and working examples!
