Shorthand notation for Object.create(null) via node module hook


Build status dependencies devdependencies


naked-objects installs a Node loader hook that transforms each loaded JavaScript file and expands <> syntax into Object.create(null)

var foo = <>; = 'bar'; // use just like normal objects 

Because naked objects do not inherit from Object, there are no weird cases like

{} + {}     // NaN 
var foo = <>;
foo + foo   // TypeError: Cannot convert object to primitive value 


Sweet naked objects

Small print
