As advertising: the author is looking for a good job :)

Modular standard library for JavaScript. Includes polyfills for ECMAScript 5, ECMAScript 6: promises, symbols, collections, iterators, typed arrays, ECMAScript 7+ proposals, setImmediate, etc. Some additional features such as dictionaries or extended partial application. You can require only needed features or use it without global namespace pollution.

Example:

Array.from(new Set([1, 2, 3, 2, 1]));          // => [1, 2, 3]
'*'.repeat(10);                                // => '**********'
Promise.resolve(32).then(x => console.log(x)); // => 32
setImmediate(x => console.log(x), 42);         // => 42

Without global namespace pollution:

var core = require('core-js/library'); // With a modular system, otherwise use global `core`
core.Array.from(new core.Set([1, 2, 3, 2, 1]));     // => [1, 2, 3]
core.String.repeat('*', 10);                        // => '**********'
core.Promise.resolve(32).then(x => console.log(x)); // => 32
core.setImmediate(x => console.log(x), 42);         // => 42

Index

Usage

Basic

npm i core-js
bower install core.js
// Default
require('core-js');
// Without global namespace pollution
var core = require('core-js/library');
// Shim only
require('core-js/shim');

If you need complete build for browser, use builds from core-js/client path:

Warning: if you use core-js with the extension of native objects, require all needed core-js modules at the beginning of entry point of your application, otherwise, conflicts may occur.

CommonJS

You can require only needed modules.

require('core-js/fn/set');
require('core-js/fn/array/from');
require('core-js/fn/array/find-index');
Array.from(new Set([1, 2, 3, 2, 1])); // => [1, 2, 3]
[1, 2, NaN, 3, 4].findIndex(isNaN);   // => 2

// or, w/o global namespace pollution:

var Set       = require('core-js/library/fn/set');
var from      = require('core-js/library/fn/array/from');
var findIndex = require('core-js/library/fn/array/find-index');
from(new Set([1, 2, 3, 2, 1]));      // => [1, 2, 3]
findIndex([1, 2, NaN, 3, 4], isNaN); // => 2

Available entry points for methods / constructors, as above examples, and namespaces: for example, core-js/es6/array (core-js/library/es6/array) contains all ES6 Array features, core-js/es6 (core-js/library/es6) contains all ES6 features.

Caveats when using CommonJS API:
  • modules path is internal API, does not inject all required dependencies and can be changed in minor or patch releases. Use it only for a custom build and / or if you know what are you doing.
  • core-js is extremely modular and uses a lot of very tiny modules, because of that for usage in browsers bundle up core-js instead of usage loader for each file, otherwise, you will have hundreds of requests.

CommonJS and prototype methods without global namespace pollution

In the library version, we can't pollute prototypes of native constructors. Because of that, prototype methods transformed to static methods like in examples above. babel runtime transformer also can't transform them. But with transpilers we can use one more trick - bind operator and virtual methods. Special for that, available /virtual/ entry points. Example:

import fill from 'core-js/library/fn/array/virtual/fill';
import findIndex from 'core-js/library/fn/array/virtual/find-index';

Array(10)::fill(0).map((a, b) => b * b)::findIndex(it => it && !(it % 8)); // => 4

// or

import {fill, findIndex} from 'core-js/library/fn/array/virtual';

Array(10)::fill(0).map((a, b) => b * b)::findIndex(it => it && !(it % 8)); // => 4

Custom build (from the command-line)

npm i core-js && cd node_modules/core-js && npm i
npm run grunt build:core.dict,es6 -- --blacklist=es6.promise,es6.math --library=on --path=custom uglify

Where core.dict and es6 are modules (namespaces) names, which will be added to the build, es6.promise and es6.math are modules (namespaces) names, which will be excluded from the build, --library=on is flag for build without global namespace pollution and custom is target file name.

Available namespaces: for example, es6.array contains ES6 Array features, es6 contains all modules whose names start with es6.

Custom build (from external scripts)

core-js-builder package exports a function that takes the same parameters as the build target from the previous section. This will conditionally include or exclude certain parts of core-js:

require('core-js-builder')({
  modules: ['es6', 'core.dict'], // modules / namespaces
  blacklist: ['es6.reflect'],    // blacklist of modules / namespaces, by default - empty list
  library: false,                // flag for build without global namespace pollution, by default - false
  umd: true                      // use UMD wrapper for export `core` object, by default - true
}).then(code => {
  // ...
}).catch(error => {
  // ...
});

Supported engines

Tested in:

  • Chrome 26+
  • Firefox 4+
  • Safari 5+
  • Opera 12+
  • Internet Explorer 6+ (sure, IE8- with ES3 limitations)
  • Edge
  • Android Browser 2.3+
  • iOS Safari 5.1+
  • PhantomJS 1.9 / 2.1
  • NodeJS 0.8+

...and it doesn't mean core-js will not work in other engines, they just have not been tested.

CommonJS entry points:

core-js(/library)/es6/promise
core-js(/library)/fn/promise

Basic example:

function sleepRandom(time){
  return new Promise(function(resolve, reject){
    setTimeout(resolve, time * 1e3, 0 | Math.random() * 1e3);
  });
}

console.log('Run');                    // => Run
sleepRandom(5).then(function(result){
  console.log(result);                 // => 869, after 5 sec.
  return sleepRandom(10);
}).then(function(result){
  console.log(result);                 // => 202, after 10 sec.
}).then(function(){
  console.log('immediately after');    // => immediately after
  throw Error('Irror!');
}).then(function(){
  console.log('will not be displayed');
}).catch(x => console.log(x));         // => => Error: Irror!

Promise.resolve and Promise.reject example:

Promise.resolve(42).then(x => console.log(x)); // => 42
Promise.reject(42).catch(x => console.log(x)); // => 42

Promise.resolve($.getJSON('/data.json')); // => ES6 promise

Promise.all example:

Promise.all([
  'foo',
  sleepRandom(5),
  sleepRandom(15),
  sleepRandom(10)             // after 15 sec:
]).then(x => console.log(x)); // => ['foo', 956, 85, 382]

Promise.race example:

function timeLimit(promise, time){
  return Promise.race([promise, new Promise(function(resolve, reject){
    setTimeout(reject, time * 1e3, Error('Await > ' + time + ' sec'));
  })]);
}

timeLimit(sleepRandom(5), 10).then(x => console.log(x));   // => 853, after 5 sec.
timeLimit(sleepRandom(15), 10).catch(x => console.log(x)); // Error: Await > 10 sec

ECMAScript 7 async functions example:

var delay = time => new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(resolve, time))

async function sleepRandom(time){
  await delay(time * 1e3);
  return 0 | Math.random() * 1e3;
};
async function sleepError(time, msg){
  await delay(time * 1e3);
  throw Error(msg);
};

(async () => {
  try {
    console.log('Run');                // => Run
    console.log(await sleepRandom(5)); // => 936, after 5 sec.
    var [a, b, c] = await Promise.all([
      sleepRandom(5),
      sleepRandom(15),
      sleepRandom(10)
    ]);
    console.log(a, b, c);              // => 210 445 71, after 15 sec.
    await sleepError(5, 'Irror!');
    console.log('Will not be displayed');
  } catch(e){
    console.log(e);                    // => Error: 'Irror!', after 5 sec.
  }
})();
Unhandled rejection tracking

In Node.js, like in native implementation, available events unhandledRejection and rejectionHandled:

process.on('unhandledRejection', (reason, promise) => console.log('unhandled', reason, promise));
process.on('rejectionHandled', (promise) => console.log('handled', promise));

var p = Promise.reject(42);
// unhandled 42 [object Promise]

setTimeout(() => p.catch(_ => _), 1e3);
// handled [object Promise]

In a browser on rejection, by default, you will see notify in the console, or you can add a custom handler and a handler on handling unhandled, example:

window.onunhandledrejection = e => console.log('unhandled', e.reason, e.promise);
window.onrejectionhandled = e => console.log('handled', e.reason, e.promise);

var p = Promise.reject(42);
// unhandled 42 [object Promise]

setTimeout(() => p.catch(_ => _), 1e3);
// handled 42 [object Promise]

ECMAScript 6: Symbol

Module es6.symbol.

Symbol(description?)  -> symbol
  .hasInstance        -> @@hasInstance
  .isConcatSpreadable -> @@isConcatSpreadable
  .iterator           -> @@iterator
  .match              -> @@match
  .replace            -> @@replace
  .search             -> @@search
  .species            -> @@species
  .split              -> @@split
  .toPrimitive        -> @@toPrimitive
  .toStringTag        -> @@toStringTag
  .unscopables        -> @@unscopables
  .for(key)           -> symbol
  .keyFor(symbol)     -> key
  .useSimple()        -> void
  .useSetter()        -> void
Object
  .getOwnPropertySymbols(object) -> array

Also wrapped some methods for correct work with Symbol polyfill.

Object
  .create(proto | null, descriptors?)    -> object
  .defineProperty(target, key, desc)     -> target
  .defineProperties(target, descriptors) -> target
  .getOwnPropertyDescriptor(var, key)    -> desc | undefined
  .getOwnPropertyNames(var)              -> array
  #propertyIsEnumerable(key)             -> bool
JSON
  .stringify(target, replacer?, space?) -> string | undefined

core-js(/library)/fn/symbol/key-for

Basic example:

var Person = (function(){
  var NAME = Symbol('name');
  function Person(name){
    this[NAME] = name;
  }
  Person.prototype.getName = function(){
    return this[NAME];
  };
  return Person;
})();

var person = new Person('Vasya');
console.log(person.getName());          // => 'Vasya'
console.log(person['name']);            // => undefined
console.log(person[Symbol('name')]);    // => undefined, symbols are uniq
for(var key in person)console.log(key); // => only 'getName', symbols are not enumerable

Symbol.for & Symbol.keyFor example:

var symbol = Symbol.for('key');
symbol === Symbol.for('key'); // true
Symbol.keyFor(symbol);        // 'key'

Example with methods for getting own object keys:

var O = {a: 1};
Object.defineProperty(O, 'b', {value: 2});
O[Symbol('c')] = 3;
Object.keys(O);                  // => ['a']
Object.getOwnPropertyNames(O);   // => ['a', 'b']
Object.getOwnPropertySymbols(O); // => [Symbol(c)]
Reflect.ownKeys(O);              // => ['a', 'b', Symbol(c)]
Caveats when using Symbol polyfill:
  • We can't add new primitive type, Symbol returns object.
  • Symbol.for and Symbol.keyFor can't be shimmed cross-realm.
  • By default, to hide the keys, Symbol polyfill defines setter in Object.prototype. For this reason, uncontrolled creation of symbols can cause memory leak and the in operator is not working correctly with Symbol polyfill: Symbol() in {} // => true.

You can disable defining setters in Object.prototype. Example:

Symbol.useSimple();
var s1 = Symbol('s1')
  , o1 = {};
o1[s1] = true;
for(var key in o1)console.log(key); // => 'Symbol(s1)_t.qamkg9f3q', w/o native Symbol

Symbol.useSetter();
var s2 = Symbol('s2')
  , o2 = {};
o2[s2] = true;
for(var key in o2)console.log(key); // nothing
  • Currently, core-js not adds setters to Object.prototype for well-known symbols for correct work something like Symbol.iterator in foo. It can cause problems with their enumerability.
  • Some problems possible with environment exotic objects (for example, IE localStorage).

ECMAScript 6: Collections

core-js uses native collections in most case, just fixes methods / constructor, if it's required, and in old environment uses fast polyfill (O(1) lookup).

Map

WeakSet

Module es6.weak-set.

new WeakSet(iterable?) -> weakset
  #add(key)            -> @
  #delete(key)         -> bool
  #has(key)            -> bool

CommonJS entry points:

core-js(/library)/es6/weak-set
core-js(/library)/fn/weak-set

Examples:

var a = [1]
  , b = [2]
  , c = [3];

var wset = new WeakSet([a, b, a]);
wset.add(c).add(b).add(c);
console.log(wset.has(b));   // => true
console.log(wset.has([2])); // => false
wset.delete(b);
console.log(wset.has(b));   // => false
Caveats when using collections polyfill:
  • Weak-collections polyfill stores values as hidden properties of keys. It works correct and not leak in most cases. However, it is desirable to store a collection longer than its keys.

Caveats when using typed arrays:
  • Typed Arrays polyfills works completely how should work by the spec, but because of internal use getter / setters on each instance, is slow and consumes significant memory. However, typed arrays polyfills required mainly for IE9 (and for Uint8ClampedArray in IE10 and early IE11), all modern engines have native typed arrays and requires only constructors fixes and methods.
  • The current version hasn't special entry points for methods, they can be added only with constructors. It can be added in the future.
  • In the library version we can't pollute native prototypes, so prototype methods available as constructors static.

Iterable DOM collections

Some DOM collections should have iterable interface or should be inherited from Array. That mean they should have keys, values, entries and @@iterator methods for iteration. So add them. Module web.dom.iterable:

  NodeList,
  DOMTokenList,
  MediaList,
  StyleSheetList,
  CSSRuleList
}
  #values()     -> iterator
  #keys()       -> iterator
  #entries()    -> iterator
  #@@iterator() -> iterator (values)

dict.toString;            // => undefined
'a' in dict;              // => true
'hasOwnProperty' in dict; // => false

Dict.isDict({});     // => false
Dict.isDict(Dict()); // => true

Dict.keys, Dict.values and Dict.entries returns iterators for objects.

Examples:

var dict = {a: 1, b: 2, c: 3};

for(var key of Dict.keys(dict))console.log(key); // => 'a', 'b', 'c'

for(var val of Dict.values(dict))console.log(val); // => 1, 2, 3

for(var [key, val] of Dict.entries(dict)){
  console.log(key); // => 'a', 'b', 'c'
  console.log(val); // => 1, 2, 3
}

new Map(Dict.entries(dict)); // => Map {a: 1, b: 2, c: 3}

Basic dict operations for objects with prototype examples:

'q' in {q: 1};            // => true
'toString' in {};         // => true

Dict.has({q: 1}, 'q');    // => true
Dict.has({}, 'toString'); // => false

({q: 1})['q'];            // => 1
({}).toString;            // => function toString(){ [native code] }

Dict.get({q: 1}, 'q');    // => 1
Dict.get({}, 'toString'); // => undefined

var O = {};
O['q'] = 1;
O['q'];         // => 1
O['__proto__'] = {w: 2};
O['__proto__']; // => {w: 2}
O['w'];         // => 2

var O = {};
Dict.set(O, 'q', 1);
O['q'];         // => 1
Dict.set(O, '__proto__', {w: 2});
O['__proto__']; // => {w: 2}
O['w'];         // => undefined

Other methods of Dict module are static equialents of Array.prototype methods for dictionaries.

Examples:

var dict = {a: 1, b: 2, c: 3};

Dict.forEach(dict, console.log, console);
// => 1, 'a', {a: 1, b: 2, c: 3}
// => 2, 'b', {a: 1, b: 2, c: 3}
// => 3, 'c', {a: 1, b: 2, c: 3}

Dict.map(dict, function(it){
  return it * it;
}); // => {a: 1, b: 4, c: 9}

Dict.mapPairs(dict, function(val, key){
  if(key != 'b')return [key + key, val * val];
}); // => {aa: 1, cc: 9}

Dict.filter(dict, function(it){
  return it % 2;
}); // => {a: 1, c: 3}

Dict.some(dict, function(it){
  return it === 2;
}); // => true

Dict.every(dict, function(it){
  return it === 2;
}); // => false

Dict.find(dict, function(it){
  return it > 2;
}); // => 3
Dict.find(dict, function(it){
  return it > 4;
}); // => undefined

Dict.findKey(dict, function(it){
  return it > 2;
}); // => 'c'
Dict.findKey(dict, function(it){
  return it > 4;
}); // => undefined

Dict.keyOf(dict, 2);    // => 'b'
Dict.keyOf(dict, 4);    // => undefined

Dict.includes(dict, 2); // => true
Dict.includes(dict, 4); // => false

Dict.reduce(dict, function(memo, it){
  return memo + it;
});     // => 6
Dict.reduce(dict, function(memo, it){
  return memo + it;
}, ''); // => '123'

Partial application

Module core.function.part.

Function
  #part(...args | _) -> fn(...args)

CommonJS entry points:

core-js/core/function
core-js(/library)/fn/function/part
core-js(/library)/fn/function/virtual/part
core-js(/library)/fn/_

Function#part partial apply function without this binding. Uses global variable _ (core._ for builds without global namespace pollution) as placeholder and not conflict with Underscore / LoDash.

Examples:

var fn1 = log.part(1, 2);
fn1(3, 4);    // => 1, 2, 3, 4

var fn2 = log.part(_, 2, _, 4);
fn2(1, 3);    // => 1, 2, 3, 4

var fn3 = log.part(1, _, _, 4);
fn3(2, 3);    // => 1, 2, 3, 4

fn2(1, 3, 5); // => 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
fn2(1);       // => 1, 2, undefined, 4

Number Iterator

Module core.number.iterator.

Number
  #@@iterator() -> iterator

CommonJS entry points:

core-js(/library)/core/number
core-js(/library)/fn/number/iterator
core-js(/library)/fn/number/virtual/iterator

Examples:

for(var i of 3)console.log(i); // => 0, 1, 2

[...10]; // => [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]

Array.from(10, Math.random); // => [0.9817775336559862, 0.02720663254149258, ...]

Array.from(10, function(it){
  return this + it * it;
}, .42); // => [0.42, 1.42, 4.42, 9.42, 16.42, 25.42, 36.42, 49.42, 64.42, 81.42]

Escaping strings

Modules core.regexp.escape, core.string.escape-html and core.string.unescape-html.

RegExp
  .escape(str) -> str
String
  #escapeHTML() -> str
  #unescapeHTML() -> str

CommonJS entry points:

core-js(/library)/core/regexp
core-js(/library)/core/string
core-js(/library)/fn/regexp/escape
core-js(/library)/fn/string/escape-html
core-js(/library)/fn/string/unescape-html
core-js(/library)/fn/string/virtual/escape-html
core-js(/library)/fn/string/virtual/unescape-html

Examples:

RegExp.escape('Hello, []{}()*+?.\\^$|!'); // => 'Hello, \[\]\{\}\(\)\*\+\?\.\\\^\$\|!'

'<script>doSomething();</script>'.escapeHTML(); // => '&lt;script&gt;doSomething();&lt;/script&gt;'

(async () => {
  await delay(3e3);
  console.log('after 3 sec');

  while(await delay(3e3))console.log('each 3 sec');
})();

Helpers for iterators

Modules core.is-iterable, core.get-iterator, core.get-iterator-method - helpers for check iterability / get iterator in the library version or, for example, for arguments object:

core
  .isIterable(var) -> bool
  .getIterator(iterable) -> iterator
  .getIteratorMethod(var) -> function | undefined

CommonJS entry points:

core-js(/library)/fn/is-iterable
core-js(/library)/fn/get-iterator
core-js(/library)/fn/get-iterator-method

Examples:

var list = (function(){
  return arguments;
})(1, 2, 3);

console.log(core.isIterable(list)); // true;

var iter = core.getIterator(list);
console.log(iter.next().value); // 1
console.log(iter.next().value); // 2
console.log(iter.next().value); // 3
console.log(iter.next().value); // undefined

core.getIterator({});   // TypeError: [object Object] is not iterable!

var iterFn = core.getIteratorMethod(list);
console.log(typeof iterFn);     // 'function'
var iter = iterFn.call(list);
console.log(iter.next().value); // 1
console.log(iter.next().value); // 2
console.log(iter.next().value); // 3
console.log(iter.next().value); // undefined

console.log(core.getIteratorMethod({})); // undefined

Missing polyfills

  • ES5 JSON is missing now only in IE7- and never will it be added to core-js, if you need it in these old browsers, many implementations are available, for example, json3.
  • ES6 String#normalize is not a very useful feature, but this polyfill will be very large. If you need it, you can use unorm.
  • ES6 Proxy can't be polyfilled, but for Node.js / Chromium with additional flags you can try harmony-reflect for adapt old style Proxy API to final ES6 version.
  • ES6 logic for @@isConcatSpreadable and @@species (in most places) can be polyfilled without problems, but it will cause a serious slowdown in popular cases in some engines. It will be polyfilled when it will be implemented in modern engines.
  • ES7 SIMD. core-js doesn't add polyfill of this feature because of large size and some other reasons. You can use this polyfill.
  • window.fetch is not a cross-platform feature, in some environments it makes no sense. For this reason, I don't think it should be in core-js. Looking at a large number of requests it may be added in the future. Now you can use, for example, this polyfill.
  • ECMA-402 Intl is missed because of size. You can use this polyfill.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
