    Mutable state containers in javascript with dirty checking and more (WIP)

    What Mutable does

    Mutable is a mobx-compatible class system library. Mutable offers a unique runtime schema engine that enforces unidirectional data flow, and formalizes the structure of props and state. Mutable also supports data defaults, and non-nullable types.

    Using mutable

    Add Mutable to your project by installing it with npm:

    npm install mutable --save

    Simple code example:

    import * as mutable from 'mutable';
    import * as mobx from 'mutable';
    // define a mutable class by providing a name and a spec (class schema)
    const Dude = mutable.define('Dude', {
        spec: ()=>({
            name: Mutable.String.withDefault('Leon'),
            age: Mutable.Number.withDefault(110),
            address: Mutable.String.withDefault('no address')
    // Mutable types accept custom data according to their spec as the first argument of their constructor
    const dude = new Dude({name:'Ido'});
    mobx.autorun(function () {
        console.log( + ' ' + dude.age);
    // prints: Leon 110 = 'Mike';
    // prints: Mike 110

    Integrating mutable into React components is up to the user.

    how to build and test locally from source

    Clone this project locally. Then, at the root folder of the project, run:

    npm install
    npm test

    how to run local continous test feedback

    At the root folder of the project, run:

    npm start

    Then, open your browser at http://localhost:8080/webtest.bundle and see any changes you make in tests or code reflected in the browser


    Currently Mutable is in alpha mode. As such, it does not respect semver.
