npm add extend-bases
yarn add extend-bases
To inherit from multiple bases simply extend from
bases(Class1, Class2, ...). In the constructor pass the instances of the classes to the
Then you can access the base properties and methods directly from
this., the first class with that property or method will be given precedence.
To access a particular base use
Replace all instances of
v instanceof Class with
isInstanceOf(v, Class), it’s just that simple.
For more details
- Read the Handy manual, it’s very simple & small and gives enough information to get started.
- Then read the Documentation. it’s not too big and easy to go through.
- Then, if you have enough time or are interested, read the tests and source code of the project.
This library uses Proxies, so sadly no IE11 support, but otherwise this library also imports es-shims for
Reflect.ownKeys(ES6 but used very often and an es-shim exists for it) and
Array.prototype.flatMap(ES2019, very new), which were found to be the bottlenecks, for some browsers.
This library uses proxies for easy access in the class instances, and it merges the prototypes of the base classes, but for isolation of base classes it creates a new function wrapping the method call. It’s just best to look at the source code for this.
The library is by default written in TypeScript, which you all should be using if you aren’t, for great code completion. The details of the TypeScript definitions are a bit fiddly, so it’s best not to worry about them, they work, or you can just look at the source code.
Feel free to open a pull request, fix bugs, or read the source code. It’s all up to you.
