Readme

auto-bind-inheritance
Automatically bind methods to their class instance and works on parent methods.

This package was created directly as a result of failing on extended classes in the auto-bind package.

There are issues with getters which are initialized in the constructor: 1) initialize the getter/setter inside the getter/setter (not ideal) 2) call autoBindI at end of final child (not ideal) 3) manually call autoBindI 4) avoid getter/setters

Install

$ npm install --save auto-bind-inheritance

Usage

// const autoBind = require('auto-bind'); // drop-in replacement
const autoBindI = require('auto-bind-inheritance');

class A {
	constructor() {
		this.val = 'A';
		autoBindI(this);
	}
	method2() { console.log('A.method2 ', this.val); }
}
  
class B extends A {
	constructor() {
		super();
		this.val = 'B';
	}
	method1() { console.log('B.method1 ', this.val); }
}


let a = new A();
let b = new B();


b.method1();
b.method2();
let mb1 = b.method1;
let mb2 = b.method2;
console.log(mb1.name);
console.log(mb2.name);
mb1();
mb2();


// With `autoBind(this)`, the above could have resulted in:
//=> 'B.method1  B'
//=> 'A.method2  B'
//=> 'bound bound method1'
//=> 'method2'
//=> 'B.method1  B'
//=> 'exception "Cannot read property 'val' of undefined"'

// With `autoBindI(this)`, the above now correctly results in bound and callable methods:
//=> 'B.method1  B'
//=> 'A.method2  B'
//=> 'bound method1'
//=> 'bound method2'
//=> 'B.method1  B'
//=> 'A.method2  B'

API
