signature: buffer(closingNotifier: Observable): Observable

Collect output values until provided observable emits, emit as array.


Example 1: Buffer until document click

( jsBin | jsFiddle )

//Create an observable that emits a value every second
const myInterval = Rx.Observable.interval(1000);
//Create an observable that emits every time document is clicked
const bufferBy = Rx.Observable.fromEvent(document, 'click');
Collect all values emitted by our interval observable until we click document. This will cause the bufferBy Observable to emit a value, satisfying the buffer. Pass us all collected values since last buffer as an array.
const myBufferedInterval = myInterval.buffer(bufferBy);
//Print values to console
//ex. output: [1,2,3] ... [4,5,6,7,8]
const subscribe = myBufferedInterval.subscribe(val => console.log(' Buffered Values:', val));
