InferJS Example

Heading  InferJS-Library: Package Overview

InferJS-Library allows you to easily add runtime type checking by utilizing JSDoc multi-line comments in both client and server side JavaScript. The library is part of the package named InferJS.

InferJS is provided with an InferJS-Compiler. The compiler interprets your JSDoc comments from your source code and compiles them into an InferObject file, that you can import into any JavaScript file.

With this library, you can also enable extended type checking and narrow down your data types with @infer expectation rules.
