This module allows you to create an ES6 class that is callable as a function. The invocation is sent to one of the object's normal prototype methods.
npm install callable-instance2
ExampleClass instances have all of the normal properties and methods, but are actually functions as well.
;;// Invoke the method normallytest.instanceMethod;// Call the instance itself, redirects to instanceMethodtest;// The instance is actually a closure bound to itself and can be used like a// normal function.test.applynull, ;
All instances of CallableMethod are also an instances of Function, and have all of Function's properties.
Libraries that accept functions will expect that they behave as Function objects do. For example, if you alter the semantics of the
apply methods, library code may fail to work with your callable instance. In these cases, you can simply bind the instance method to the callable instance and pass that instead (e.g.
This can also cause problems if your derived class wants to have a
length property, which are built-in properties and not configurable by default. You can have your class disable the built-in descriptors of these properties to make them available for your use.
;test.name = "hello!"console.logtest.name; // Will print 'instanceMethod'test = new NameableClass;test.name = "hello!";console.logtest.name; // Will print 'hello!'
