TypeJS

Better TypeChecking in JavaScript using instanceof.

Installation

Use the package manager NPM to install TypeJS into your NodeJS Project.

npm install --save @power-industries/typejs

You can then import the module into your JavaScript File.

const Type = require('@power-industries/typejs')

Usage

TypeJS works by implementing Pseudo-Classes for some JavaScript Types. Those Pseudo-Classes allows for checking values directly with instanceof.

All the following examples return true:

undefined instanceof Type.Undefined
null instanceof Type.Null
true instanceof Type.Boolean
1.1 instanceof Type.Number
NaN instanceof Type.NaN
Infinity instanceof Type.Infinity
"Hello World" instanceof Type.String
[] instanceof Type.Array
{} instanceof Type.Object
Symbol() instanceof Type.Symbol
100n instanceof Type.BigInt
() => {} instanceof Type.Function

This module also treats Number, NaN and Infinity as three different Types, as well as Null, Array and Object, as opposed to the typeof Operator.

This module does not include Types which are already available as Class-Instances in JavaScript, such as Map or Set.
