typeof

typeof

Small node.js module that dramatically extends functionality of native typeof

Inspired by Batman.js typeOf util

UPD: now it returns lowercased name of any javascript class. Thanks to @BallBearing for idea

Usage:

$ npm install typeof
var typeOf = require('typeof');
 
console.log(typeOf("a string"));
// -> "string" 
 
console.log(typeOf([1, 2, 3, "array"]));
// -> "array" 
 
console.log(typeOf(null));
// -> "null" 
 
console.log(typeOf(new Buffer(0)));
// -> "buffer" 
 
function MyClass() {
  this.is = "class constructor"  
}
console.log(typeOf(new MyClass));
// ->"myclass"
