// RxJS v6+
import { interval, fromEvent } from 'rxjs';
import {
  switchMapTo,
  scan,

  takeWhile,
  finalize
} from 'rxjs/operators';

const COUNTDOWN_TIME = 10;

// reference
const countdownElem = document.getElementById('countdown');

// streams
const click$ = fromEvent(document, 'click');
const countdown$ = interval(1000).pipe(
  scan((acc, _) => --acc, COUNTDOWN_TIME),
  startWith(COUNTDOWN_TIME)
);

click$
  .pipe(
    switchMapTo(countdown$),
    takeWhile(val => val >= 0),
    finalize(() => (countdownElem.innerHTML = "We're done here!"))
  )
  .subscribe((val: any) => (countdownElem.innerHTML = val));
