Attr

Special thanks to @Krisk for the NPM package name.

Using npm: npm install attr --save

Latest code can be found here: https://github.com/Macrofig/attr

import Attr from 'attr';
 
const myObj = { name: 'Juan' };
const attr = new Attr(myObj);
 
attr('name'); //> 'Juan' 
attr('name', 'Optimus Prime'); //> 'Optimus Prime' 
attr(); //> { name: 'Optimus Prime' } 

or

NOTE: It is not recommended to append to the Object prototype. This is just a simple example on how to attach attr to your custom class.

import Attr from 'attr';
 
const myObj = { name: 'Juan' };
Object.prototype.attr = Attr();
 
myObj.attr('name'); //> 'Juan' 
myObj.attr('name', 'Optimus Prime'); //> 'Optimus Prime' 
myObj.attr(); //> { name: 'Optimus Prime' } 

The code is in ES6 but it can be transpiled into AMD, CommonJS, or global modules. If you are using the NPM package, the dist is already available to you.

  • Clone to your machine: git clone https://github.com/Macrofig/attr
  • cd attr
  • npm install
  • Run the build npm run build

This will create a dist folder with three bundles, one for each of the following:

  • AMD
  • CommonJS
  • Global

Use the appropriate bundle as needed. :)

Make sure you have installed the dependencies (see "Build" above) and have Firefox installed on your machine.

Command line:

Simply run npm run test.

This will run tests using Firefox so make sure it is installed first.

Browser:

Simply run npm run develop. This will attempt to start a web server on port 8001, if successful, it will open your default browser.

Browse to /tests.html. Tests will run in the Mocha browser using StealJS and Testee.

  • Test coverage
  • Better documentation
  • Access deep properties with . (dot) operator. myObj.attr('name.last')
  • Hookable getter/setter. Create any plugin needed to change getter or setter behavior.
  • Get multiple items by passing array (filter): myObj.attr(['name', 'npm']);//> {name: 'Juan', twitter: 'macrofig'}
