    node-inherits

    Inheritance module for node.js

    Getting started

    npm install node-inherits
    

    Overview

    Inherits

    To inherit from a super constructor, call inherits with your constructor and the super one:

    Super       = function () {};
    Constructor = inherits(function () {}, Super);
    

    Another way to do this is to call inherits with your super constructor and use its new inherits method:

    Super       = inherits(function () {});
    Constructor = Super.inherits(function () {});
    

    During inheritance, all constructor are called from the super to last inherited.

    Super       = inherits(function () {
      this.name = 'Super';
    });
    Constructor = Super.inherits(function () {
      this.name += ' > Constructor';
    });
    
    object = new Constructor();
    console.log(object.name); // 'Super > Constructor';
    

    instanceof

    Like with node.js util.inherits, your constructor instances will be also instance of super constructor:

    object  = new Constructor();
    console.log(object instanceof Constructor); // true
    console.log(object instanceof Super);       // true
    

    prototype and constructor properties

    All properties attached to the constructor and prototype are inherited, taking care of their descriptors.
    This means that if Super constructor declared a property with configurable set to false, it will be preserved.

    Install
