    Navigator.addIdleObserver()

    Non-standard
    This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

    This API is available on Firefox OS for internal applications only.

    Summary

    This method is used to add an observer that will check if the user is idle and will act accordingly. Once an observer is added, it can be removed with Navigator.removeIdleObserver.

    Syntax

    navigator.addIdleObserver(IdleObserver);

    Parameters

    IdleObserver
    An object with specific properties to handle if the user is idle or not; see IdleObserver below.

    IdleObserver

    The IdleObserver is any object with the three following properties:

    time
    The time (expressed in seconds) before the user is considered idle.
    onidle
    A function called when the user is considered idle.
    onactive
    A function called when the user becomes active again.

    Example

    var myObserver = {
      time: 10,
      onidle: function () {
        console.log("The user is idle for 10 seconds");
      },
      onactive: function () {
        console.log("The user is now active again");
      }
    }
    
    navigator.addIdleObserver(myObserver);
    

    Specification

    Not part of any specification yet; however, this API will be discussed at W3C as part of the System Applications Working Group.
