Please consider following this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, and consider starring the project to show your ❤️ and support.

Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save class-utils

Usage

var cu = require('class-utils');

API

.has

Returns true if an array has any of the given elements, or an object has any of the give keys.

Params

  • obj {Object}
  • val {String|Array}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

cu.has(['a', 'b', 'c'], 'c');
//=> true

cu.has(['a', 'b', 'c'], ['c', 'z']);
//=> true

cu.has({a: 'b', c: 'd'}, ['c', 'z']);
//=> true

.hasAll

Returns true if an array or object has all of the given values.

Params

  • val {Object|Array}
  • values {String|Array}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

cu.hasAll(['a', 'b', 'c'], 'c');
//=> true

cu.hasAll(['a', 'b', 'c'], ['c', 'z']);
//=> false

cu.hasAll({a: 'b', c: 'd'}, ['c', 'z']);
//=> false

.arrayify

Cast the given value to an array.

Params

  • val {String|Array}
  • returns {Array}

Example

cu.arrayify('foo');
//=> ['foo']

cu.arrayify(['foo']);
//=> ['foo']

.hasConstructor

Returns true if a value has a contructor

Params

  • value {Object}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

cu.hasConstructor({});
//=> true

cu.hasConstructor(Object.create(null));
//=> false

.nativeKeys

Get the native ownPropertyNames from the constructor of the given object. An empty array is returned if the object does not have a constructor.

Params

  • obj {Object}: Object that has a constructor.
  • returns {Array}: Array of keys.

Example

cu.nativeKeys({a: 'b', b: 'c', c: 'd'})
//=> ['a', 'b', 'c']

cu.nativeKeys(function(){})
//=> ['length', 'caller']

.getDescriptor

Returns property descriptor key if it's an "own" property of the given object.

Params

  • obj {Object}
  • key {String}
  • returns {Object}: Returns descriptor key

Example

function App() {}
Object.defineProperty(App.prototype, 'count', {
  get: function() {
    return Object.keys(this).length;
  }
});
cu.getDescriptor(App.prototype, 'count');
// returns:
// {
//   get: [Function],
//   set: undefined,
//   enumerable: false,
//   configurable: false
// }

.copyDescriptor

Copy a descriptor from one object to another.

Params

  • receiver {Object}
  • provider {Object}
  • name {String}
  • returns {Object}

Example

function App() {}
Object.defineProperty(App.prototype, 'count', {
  get: function() {
    return Object.keys(this).length;
  }
});
var obj = {};
cu.copyDescriptor(obj, App.prototype, 'count');

.copy

Copy static properties, prototype properties, and descriptors from one object to another.

Params

  • receiver {Object}
  • provider {Object}
  • omit {String|Array}: One or more properties to omit
  • returns {Object}

.inherit

Inherit the static properties, prototype properties, and descriptors from of an object.

Params

  • receiver {Object}
  • provider {Object}
  • omit {String|Array}: One or more properties to omit
  • returns {Object}

.extend

Returns a function for extending the static properties, prototype properties, and descriptors from the Parent constructor onto Child constructors.

Params

  • Parent {Function}: Parent ctor
  • extend {Function}: Optional extend function to handle custom extensions. Useful when updating methods that require a specific prototype.
  • Child {Function}: Child ctor
  • proto {Object}: Optionally pass additional prototype properties to inherit.
  • returns {Object}

Example

var extend = cu.extend(Parent);
Parent.extend(Child);

// optional methods
Parent.extend(Child, {
  foo: function() {},
  bar: function() {}
});

.bubble

Bubble up events emitted from static methods on the Parent ctor.

Params

  • Parent {Object}
  • events {Array}: Event names to bubble up
