    derby-vm

    Derby plugin for making a better distinction between vm (component's scoped model) and model (model.root).

    vm refers to ViewModel, e.g. the model pertaining to a specific (component's) view/template. This is oddly named in Derby to model, which makes it difficult to separate the two. Thus, the need for this plugin.

    How to use

    Add the plugin:

    derby.use(require('derby-vm'));

    In any init method of any component, you get two arguments instead of one:

    MyComponent.prototype.init = function (vm, model) {
      // vm === old model - i.e. the component's scoped model
      // model === old model.root - i.e. the root of all model data
    };
    MyComponent.prototype.components = [require('subcomponent')]

    Added to every component is two additional variables, vm and root:

    MyComponent.prototype.myMethod = function () {
      // New style === Old style
      // this.vm === this.model
      // this.root === this.vm.root
    };
