Extended clock

importance: 5

We’ve got a Clock class. As of now, it prints the time every second.

class Clock {
  constructor({ template }) {
    this.template = template;
  }

  render() {
    let date = new Date();

    let hours = date.getHours();
    if (hours < 10) hours = '0' + hours;

    let mins = date.getMinutes();
    if (mins < 10) mins = '0' + mins;

    let secs = date.getSeconds();
    if (secs < 10) secs = '0' + secs;

    let output = this.template
      .replace('h', hours)
      .replace('m', mins)
      .replace('s', secs);

    console.log(output);
  }

  stop() {
    clearInterval(this.timer);
  }

  start() {
    this.render();
    this.timer = setInterval(() => this.render(), 1000);
  }
}

Create a new class ExtendedClock that inherits from Clock and adds the parameter precision – the number of ms between “ticks”. Should be 1000 (1 second) by default.

  • Your code should be in the file extended-clock.js
  • Don’t modify the original clock.js. Extend it.

Open a sandbox for the task.

class ExtendedClock extends Clock {
  constructor(options) {
    super(options);
    let { precision=1000 } = options;
    this.precision = precision;
  }

  start() {
    this.render();
    this.timer = setInterval(() => this.render(), this.precision);
  }
};

Open the solution in a sandbox.
