This package is ESM only: Node 12+ is needed to use it and it must be imported instead of required.

Use

import {EventEmitter} from 'events'
import {unherit} from 'unherit'

// Create a private class which acts just like `EventEmitter`.
var Emitter = unherit(EventEmitter)

Emitter.prototype.defaultMaxListeners = 0
// Now, all instances of `Emitter` have no maximum listeners, without affecting
// other `EventEmitter`s.

new Emitter().defaultMaxListeners === 0 // => true
new EventEmitter().defaultMaxListeners === undefined // => true
new Emitter() instanceof EventEmitter // => true
