Comments

This function can be used to delay the code execution for a specific time. Note that this function is asynchronous (like the most of javascript), so can't write "doSomething(); sleep(1000); doAfterDelay;". See the examples below.

Examples

The function can be used in two way:

1. Standalone:

console.log("one1");

sleep(2000)
	.then(function() {
		console.log("two2");
	});

2. Within the chain:

// SmartBots Playground code start v1.0 (automatic line)
http.get("https://mysmartbots.com")
	.then(function() {
		console.log("one");	
		
	return sleep(2000);
	})
	.then(function() {
		console.log("two");
	})

	.then(function() {
		// Gracefully stop the test script
		exit();
	});
