Simple Rocket.jl example: Error in Timer

Hello people

I am currently working with the package Rocket.jl and would like to run the sample code at GitHub - biaslab/Rocket.jl: Functional reactive programming extensions library for Julia

but the following code always brings an error message.

using Rocket, Compose, IJulia ; set_default_graphic_size(35cm, 2cm)

function draw_ball(t)
    x = -exp(-0.01t) + 1                     # x coordinate
    y = -abs(exp(-0.04t)*(cos(0.1t))) + 0.83 # y coordinate
    display(compose(context(), circle(x, y, 0.01)))

source = interval(20) |> take(200) # Take only first 200 emissions

subscription = subscribe!(source, draw_ball)

Message under WIN11 - Julia 1.8.5:

Error in Timer:

What am I doing wrong here?

Hey @Ralf_Dietrich ,

In what environment are you trying to run this code? It is supposed to work only in Jupyter notebook.

Your hint put me on the right track. Thank you very much.

  1. I have now run the code under VSCode as ipynb file.
  2. The code does not work here either because of a bug that is already reported (Undefined reference when using `clear_output` · Issue #1066 · JuliaLang/IJulia.jl · GitHub)
  3. I deleted the line that causes the bug, then you can run the program as a flipbook and you get at least an impression what it should do originally. ==> Just delete the line IJulia.clear_output(true)
