What are Custom JS Events?

Explo uses the CustomEvent spec to fire our own events when certain things happen in the app that you might want to respond to in your app.

How do I interact with Custom JS events?

You should be able to add an event listener in your app to respond to any of the available events listed on this page.

const listener = (e) => {
  console.log(e.detail);
};

elem.addEventListener("EVENT_NAME", listener);

Just make sure you clean up the event listener when you’re done with it.

elem.removeEventListener(listener);
