ES5-compatible object manipulation library for node and modern browsers
Why not use underscore or lo-dash
- They do NOT use properties that are non-enumerable when they extend/clone/etc.
- They DO use enumerable properties from prototypes when they extend/clone/etc.
- When they clone, they create instances of Object rather than of the same class as cloned object.
- They implement many methods that are already implemented natively.
- They don't implement methods for inheritance and extention of prototypes.
- They create confusion when you read code as you can't clearly differentiate between arrays and objects (maps), e.g. when each function is used.
- Underscore has clumbersome chaining syntax, chaining in proto is more succinct.
npm install mol-proto --save
To use and develop:
git clone email@example.com:milojs/proto.git cd proto npm link cd ../<your project> npm link mol-proto
var _ = require('mol-proto');
All functions are exported as properties of a global _ object when used with milo, there is no separate proto bundle yet (will be added shortly).
