array-index

Invoke getter/setter functions on array-like objects

Build Status

This little module provides an ArrayIndex constructor function that you can inherit from with your own objects. When a numbered property gets read, then the __get__ function on the object will be invoked. When a numbered property gets set, then the __set__ function on the object will be invoked.

Installation

Install with npm:

$ npm install array-index

Examples

var ArrayIndex = require('array-index')
var inherits = require('util').inherits

function MyArray (length) {
  // be sure to call the ArrayIndex constructor in your own constructor
  ArrayIndex.call(this, length)
}

// inherit from the ArrayIndex's prototype
inherits(MyArray, ArrayIndex)

MyArray.prototype.__get__ = function (index) {
  return index * 2
}


// and now you can create some instances
var a = new MyArray(100)
a[0] // 0
a[1] // 2
a[2] // 4
a[3] // 6

a[0] = 1
// Error: you must implement the __set__ function
