    Heritable

    Inheritance mechanisms for making prototypal classes

    Installation

    via [npm]

    npm install heritable
    

    Usage

    var	Heritable = require('heritable.js'),
    	Animal, Human,	// Constructors
    	animal, human;	// instances
    
    Animal = new Heritable('Animal');
    animal = new Animal();
    console.log('animal instanceof Animal: ' + (animal instanceof Animal));
    
    Human = new Heritable('Human');
    human = new Human();
    console.log('human instanceof Animal: ' + (human instanceof Animal));
    console.log('human instanceof Human: ' + (human instanceof Human));
    console.log('animal instanceof Human: ' + (animal instanceof Human));
    

    Some details

    You can provide an initializer function and methods for a Heritable class:

    animalInitializer = function (o) {
    	o = o || {};
    	this.type = o.type;
    };
    
    animalMethods = {
    	getType: function () {
    		return this.type;
    	}
    };
    
    Animal = new Heritable('Animal', null, animalInitializer, animalMethods);
    animal = new Animal({type: 'gorilla'});
    console.log('animal type:   ' + animal.getType());
    

    To Do

    1 do not init if already an object
    2 add a method for adding methods to a Heritable class
    3 perhaps: distinguish Heritable class methods from members
