Description

describe 'properties', ->
  it 'is an Object', ->
    (_.isObject properties).should.be.ok

The "aspect" field defines which section of the class definition the module handles.

  it 'has a "aspect" string"', ->
    properties.aspect.should.be.a 'string'

  it 'its aspect is "properties"', ->
    properties.aspect.should.equal 'properties'

This aspect is optional.

  it 'does not crash if the class has no properties', ->
    Person = ->
    Person.definition = {}
    properties.augment Person

The augment function exists...

  it 'has a "augment" function', ->
    (_.isFunction properties.augment).should.be.ok

...and adds properties.

  it 'adds a property to a class prototype', ->
    Person = ->
    Person.definition =
      properties:
        name:
          get: -> @_name
          set: (newValue) -> @_name = newValue
    properties.augment Person
    x = new Person
    x.name = 'sam'
    x.name.should.equal 'sam'

The module can be used as a nail module.

  it 'can be used as a nail module', ->
    nail = nailCore.use fields, properties
    lib = nail.to Person:
      properties:
        name:
          get: -> @_name
          set: (newValue) -> @_name = newValue

    x = new lib.Person
    x.name = 'someone'
    x.name.should.equal 'someone'

Properties can be initialized wih is.

  it 'can be initialized wih `is`', ->
    nail = nailCore.use fields, properties
    lib = nail.to Person:
      properties:
        name:
          get: -> @_name
          set: (newValue) -> @_name = newValue
          is:  'anon'

    x = new lib.Person
    x.name.should.equal 'anon'

More than one property can be defined.

  it 'can create multiple properties', ->
    nail = nailCore.use properties

    lib = nail.to Person:
      properties:
        firstName:
          get: -> @_firstName
          set: (newValue) -> @_firstName = newValue
        lastName:
          get: -> @_lastName
          set: (newValue) -> @_lastName = newValue

    x = new lib.Person
    x.firstName = 'someone'
    x.lastName  = 'else'
    x.firstName.should.equal 'someone'
    x.lastName.should.equal  'else'
    console.log x

Values are stored per instance.

  it 'can be used with multiple instances', ->
    nail = nailCore.use fields, properties
    lib = nail.to Person:
      properties:
        name:
          get: -> @_name
          set: (newValue) -> @_name = newValue

    x = new lib.Person
    y = new lib.Person
    x.name = 'someone'
    y.name = 'thisone'
    x.name.should.equal 'someone'
    y.name.should.equal 'thisone'

Initializing a property with a function creates readonly property

  it 'can be used as a nail module', ->
    nail = nailCore.use fields, properties
    lib = nail.to Rectangle:
      fields:
        length: 0
        height: 0
      properties:
        area: ->@length * @heigth

    x = new lib.Rectangle
    x.length = 2
    x.heigth = 3
    x.area.should.equal 6

An attemp to set a readonly property throws an error

  it 'throws an error on setting a readonly property', ->
    nail = nailCore.use fields, properties
    lib = nail.to Rectangle:
      fields:
        length: 0
        height: 0
      properties:
        area: ->@length * @heigth

    x = new lib.Rectangle
    (-> x.area = 2).should.throw(
      'Set error: Rectangle.area is a readonly property.'
    )
