Immutable Object

Use in Node.js:

npm install immutable-object

Or, in a web app. You'll need ES5-shim for this to work in older web browsers.

Examples

var immutable = require("immutable-object");
 
var first = immutable({ foo: 1, bar: 2 });
var second = first.set({ foo: 2, buz: 3 });

You can use immutable.createClass to define an immutable object constructor that adds methods to the prototype.

var Task = immutable.createClass({
  // The constructor will call the `init` method when constructing an instance.
  // It *must* return an object.
  init: function(text) {
    return this.set({ text: text, isDone: false });
  },
  // Mutation methods return a new object, the original is unchanged.
  setText: function(text) {
    // Use the `set` method to create the new object.
    return this.set({ text: text });
  },
  done: function() {
    return this.set({ isDone: true });
  },
 
  // Properties of the object are accessible as normal.
  toString: function() {
    return this.text + (this.isDone ? " - done" : "");
  }
});
 
var task = new Task("Buy ice cream");
console.log(task.toString());
 
// Any change results in a new object.
// So be sure to assign the result to use it.
task = task.setText("Eat ice cream");
console.log(task.toString());
 
task = task.done();
console.log(task.toString());
