Javascript event helper

Event handling helper, always bind and unbind correctly. The type/listener/options need to be exact the same to be able to unbind. The listener needs to be the same by reference. An anonymous function will therefor never unbind. This is a pitfall even seasoned devs fall into. This wrapper fixes that.

export default function bind(target, { type: Event, listener, options }) {
  target.addEventlistener(type, listener, options)
  return function unbind() {
    target.removeEventlistener(type, listener, option)

In a React useEffect it gets very slim having the unbind being returned and therefor preventing memory leaks.

useEffect(() => bind(window, {'click', () => console.log('A click happended')}));
