object-observable-lite

Observe object changes deeply without cloning in an efficient manner.

Goals

The package must observe deeply. The package must not clone the nested objects. The package must handle all types. The package should attempt to minimize overhead

Caveats

Returned changes are not cloned. Instances and therefore will mutate as the observed object mutates

object-observable

This is a derivative of object-observable with many of the features striped for improved performance.

Opportunities for Improvements

The comparison of other packages suggests there is still room for improvement in the overall efficiency of this package.

Other packages will have to be more deeply analyzed to determine how this package could be improved.
