EventEmitter is the message/or/event manager

func New

func New() EventEmitter

New returns a new, empty, EventEmitter

type EventName

type EventName string

EventName is just a type of string, it's the event name

type Events

type Events map[EventName][]Listener

Events the type for registered listeners, it's just a map[string][]func(...any)

// regiter our events to the default event emmiter
for evt, listeners := range testEvents {
	_event.On(evt, listeners...)

user := "user1"
room := "room1"

joinUserTo(user, room)
leaveFromRoom(user, room)

A new User just created!
A new User just created, *from second event listener
user1 joined to room: room1
user1 left from the room: room1

func (Events) CopyTo

func (e Events) CopyTo(emmiter EventEmitter)

CopyTo copies the event listeners to an EventEmitter

type Listener

type Listener func(...any)

Listener is the type of a Listener, it's a func which receives any,optional, arguments from the caller/emmiter
