Gitlab Github Twitter Discord

A simple yet powerful utility to manage and create class instances in JavaScript applications. This registry allows you to define, override, and retrieve classes with ease. It also comes with built-in validation checks to ensure the integrity of the classes you're working with.

Features

  • Define classes once and access them globally.
  • Create instances of classes with runtime validation checks.
  • Support for deep-nesting of classes.
  • Override existing class definitions.

Installation

Install the package with:

npm install @basd/registry

Usage

First, import the Registry library.

import Registry from '@basd/registry'

or

const Registry = require('@basd/registry')

Then use the registry to set, validate and instantiate some class:

const Registry = require('@basd/registry')
const MyClass = require('./MyClass')

const registry = new Registry()

// Add MyClass to the registry
registry.set('MyClass', MyClass)

// Create a new instance
const instance = registry.createInstance('MyClass')

// Validate class and instance
if (registry.isValidClass(MyClass) && registry.isValidInstance(instance)) {
  console.log('Valid')
}

Documentation

API

constructor(config)

Initialize the Registry class with an optional configuration.

const Registry = require('@basd/registry')
const registry = new Registry({
  classes: {
    'MyClass': MyClassDefinition
  }
})

createInstance(name, args, baseClass)

Create an instance of a class with a given name. Optionally, specify a baseClass to validate against.

const instance = registry.createInstance('MyClass', [arg1, arg2], MyBaseClass)

isValidClass(targetClass, baseClass)

Validate whether targetClass is a valid class optionally against a baseClass.

isValidInstance(instance, baseClass)

Check if instance is a valid object and optionally belongs to a class derived from baseClass.

ingest(source)

Ingest classes from another source.

registry.ingest(anotherRegistry)

setWith(name, targetClass, baseClass, override = false)

Set a class with additional validation checks. Optionally, specify a baseClass and if the class can be overridden.

registry.setWith('MyClass', MyClass, MyBaseClass, true)

set(name, targetClass, override = true)

Set a class in the registry. Optionally, allow it to be overridden.

registry.set('MyClass', MyClass)

setMany(classes, override = false)

Set multiple classes at once.

registry.setMany({
  'MyClass1': MyClass1,
  'MyClass2': MyClass2
})

get(name, defaultValue = null)

Get a class from the registry by its name. If not found, return defaultValue.

const MyClass = registry.get('MyClass')

has(name)

Check if the registry contains a class with the specified name.

const exists = registry.has('MyClass')

static get(config)

A static method to get an existing registry instance or create a new one.

const registry = Registry.get(existingConfig)
