TimeThis : Simple stopwatch for scope

CodeQL Build Status


Provide for a simple utility class where we can time the operation of a code block and allow the time to be updated in an optional lambda.

auto handleHTTPMessage(auto req)
    if( req == HTTP_GET )
        if( req == "/v1/something" )
            // Consider the scenario where we would like to inform
            // the client time taken.
            auto     resp= createResponse();
            // Declaration of the lambda takes the resp object
            // and sets the header and logs to our global logger
            TimeThis tt{ [&g_logger,&resp](const auto& delta) {
                            auto ttx= std::chrono::duration_cast<milliseconds>(tt.elapsed());
                            // Set the diagnostic header
                            resp->addHeader("X-Diagnostic-Time", std::to_string(ttx.count()) );
                            // Log this response
                            g_logger->debug("Processing /v1/something took {}ms", ttx );
                     }; // notes the call function and starts the stopwatch
            // Some other work..Perhaps lookup db, etc.
            resp= ...; // set the body
            return resp;
  • Support formatter for std::format when available
  • Support use of std::source_location when available
  • Simple "api" where all of your work is in your lambda

        // Use initializer list-style instantiation; we do not allow move/assignment construction.
        // Note that the `()` is not required when the lambda/function takes no argument.
        siddiqsoft::TimeThis tt {[&passTest] {
            // Runs when this scope ends
            passTest = true;

        auto timeTaken= tt.elapsed();
    catch (...) {
        EXPECT_TRUE(false); // if we throw then the test fails.

    // Iff the lambda runs, it should be true
