Several recent contributions in the field of iterative STFT phase retrieval have demonstrated that the performance of the classical Griffin-Lim method can be considerably improved upon. By using the same projection operators as Griffin-Lim, but combining them in innovative ways, these approaches achieve better results in terms of both reconstruction quality and required number of iterations, while retaining a similar computational complexity per iteration. However, like Griffin-Lim, these algorithms operate in an offline manner and thus require an entire spectrogram as input, which is an unrealistic requirement for many real-world speech communication applications. We propose to extend RTISI -- an existing online (frame-by-frame) variant of the Griffin-Lim algorithm -- into a flexible framework that enables straightforward online implementation of any algorithm based on iterative projections. We further employ this framework to implement online variants of the fast Griffin-Lim algorithm, the accelerated Griffin-Lim algorithm, and two algorithms from the optics domain. Evaluation results on speech signals show that, similarly to the offline case, these algorithms can achieve a considerable performance gain compared to RTISI.
