import * as smartdelay from 'smartdelay';

(async () => {
  await smartdelay.delayFor(3000); // excution will halt here 3 seconds for this function scope BUT NOT BLOCK anything else
  console.log('hi there');

  // You can also go random
  await smartdelay.delayForRandom(2000, 6000); // this will delay exection somewhere between 2 and 6 seconds.
  console.log('Yay. You did not see me coming at this exact time');
