    surely

    Can I add runtime type checking to JavaScript?

    Surely you can't be serious.

    I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

    Example

    var fs = require('fs');
    var Surely = require('surely');
     
     
    // --- Asynchronous error generation ---
    var read = Surely
                .string('filename')   // First argument is a string
                .object('options')    // Second argument is an object
                .callback('callback') // Second/Third argument is a callback function
                .wrap(fs.readFile);
     
    read(null, {}, function(err, data) {
      console.log(err);
      // [Error: Missing parameter: filename]
    });
     
     
    // --- Synchronous error generation ---
    var readSync = Surely
                    .string('filename')     // First argument is a string
                    .object('options?')     // Second argument is an optional object
                    .wrap(fs.readFileSync);
    var data = readSync(['foo.txt', 'bar.tar.gz']);
    console.log(data);
    // [TypeError: Expected string for "filename"]
     
     
    // --- Calling wrapped functions with objects ---
    var values = Surely.number('num').string('str').regex('reg').wrap(function(num, str, reg) {
      return [num, str, reg];
    });
     
    var myvals = values({
      num: 123,
      str: 'foo',
      reg: /^this\sis\sregex$/
    });
     
    console.log(myvals);
    // [123, 'foo', /^this\sis\sregex$]
     
    // --- Using defaults ---
    var random = Surely.number('min', 0).number('max', 100).wrap(function(min, max) {
      return min + Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1));
    });
     
    console.log(random());
    // A random value between 0 and 100
     
    console.log(random(10));
    // A random value between 10 and 100
     
    console.log(random(10, 20));
    // A random value between 10 and 20

    Types

    Surely comes with a set of default types. You can define your own types or override the default types with your own methods.

    Default Types

    • array
    • bool
    • callback
    • date
    • func
    • number
    • object
    • regex
    • string

    Surely.add(name, testFunction)

    You can add types by using the add method with a String name and Function test function.

    var Surely = require('surely');
     
    Surely.add('int', function(val) {
      return typeof val === 'number' && Math.floor(val) === val;
    });
     
    var double = Surely.int('num').wrap(function(num) {
      return num * 2;
    });
     
    console.log(double(3.1));
    // [TypeError: Expected int for 'num']

    Surely.add(object)

    You can also add types by using the add method with an object that contains key names and function values. Internally, surely uses this method to add the Default Types.

    var Surely = require('surely');
     
    var typetest = function(type) {
      return function(val) {
        return typeof val === type;
      };
    };
     
    Surely.add({
      'number': typetest('number'),
      'string': typetest('string'),
      'array': Array.isArray
    });

    Usage

    Surely uses a builder pattern to construct a wrapped function.

    Type(name, [defaultValue])

    Each type (from the list of Default Types above) is a method that is called with one required name argument and one optional defaultValue argument. To make an argument optional, append a ? to the end of the name.

    var Surely = require('surely');
     
    var log = Surely
      .string('message')                // 'message' string param
      .object('data?')                  // 'data' object param that is optional
      .func('logger', console.log)      // a logging function that defaults to console.log
      .wrap(
    function(message, opt_data, logger) {
      if (opt_data) {
        logger(message, opt_data);
      } else {
        logger(message);
      }
    });
     
    // Call log with parameters
    log('hello there');
    // hello there
     
    // Call log with an object
    log({
      message: 'Data overload',
      data: {overload: true}
    });
    //  Date overload { overload: true }

    Retains context

    Using Surely in a more Object Oriented way works, too. Scope is preserved in wrapped functions.

    function Silo() {
      this.population = 5000;
    }
     
    Silo.prototype.setNumber = Surely.number('siloNumber').wrap(function(siloNumber) {
      this.number = siloNumber;
    });
     
    var silo = new Silo();
     
    console.log(silo.number);
    // undefined
     
    silo.setNumber(18);
     
    console.log(silo.number);
    // 18
