Debouncing for YUI

Debouncing for YUI Build Status

Debouncing is a similar strategy to throttling (see yui-throttle)

Y.debounce delays the execution of a function by a certain number of milliseconds, starting over every time the function is called. That way it allows you to listen only once to events happening repeated times over a time span.

For example, you can debounce a callback to a keypress event so that you know when the user stopped typing:'input').on('keypress', Y.debounce(500, function () {
    alert('The user stopped typing');
