About stdlib...

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

Prototypical Inheritance

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

Implement prototypical inheritance by replacing the prototype of one constructor with the prototype of another constructor.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/utils-inherit

Usage

var inherit = require( '@stdlib/utils-inherit' );

inherit( ctor, superCtor )

Implements prototypical inheritance by replacing the prototype of one constructor with the prototype of another constructor.

function Foo() {
    return this;
}

Foo.prototype.beep = function beep() {
    return 'boop';
};

function Bar() {
    Foo.call( this );
    return this;
}

inherit( Bar, Foo );

Notes

  • This function is not designed to work with ES2015/ES6 classes. For ES2015/ES6 classes, use class with extends.

Examples

var inherit = require( '@stdlib/utils-inherit' );

function Foo() {
    return this;
}
Foo.prototype = {};
Foo.prototype.beep = function beep() {
    return 'boop';
};

function Bar() {
    Foo.call( this );
    this._super = Foo.prototype;
    return this;
}

// Set up prototypical inheritance:
inherit( Bar, Foo );

var bar = new Bar();

var bool = ( bar instanceof Bar );
// returns true

bool = ( bar instanceof Foo );
// returns true

bool = bar.beep();
// returns 'boop'

Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
