Magic-Params is a small Node modules that lets you re-order of the params in your functions, without chaging their value. Magic-Params was designed to support a simplified plugin architecure.

For example: the following function...

const fn = (args, in, any, order) => {}

... will work exactly the same if you re-order the arguments:

const fn = (any, order, in, args) => {}

Just pass your params object and function to Magic-Params:

const magicParams = require('magic-params')
 
const fn = (a, b) => {
    return a + b
}
 
const params = {
    a: 2,
    b: 2
}
 
const result = magicParms.pass(params, fn)
// Result = 4

Passing Arguments

const magicParams = require('magic-params')
 
const params = {
    a: 'Hello,',
    b: ' world!'
}
 
// You can switch the order of the arguments
 
const display1 = (a, b) {
    console.log(a + b)
}
 
const display2 = (b, a) {
    console.log(a + b)
}
 
// The values stay mapped to param names
 
magicParams.pass(params, display1)
// 'Hello, world!'
 
magicParams.pass(params, display2)
// 'Hello, world!'

Passing Context

You can pass context with magic params by using the magicParams.apply() method:

const magicParams = require('magic-params')
 
const params = {
    a: 'Hello,'
}
 
const context = {
    b: ' world!'
}
 
// The context is available on `this`
 
const display = function (a) {
    console.log(a + this.b)
}
 
magicParams.apply(params, display, context)
// 'Hello, world!'

Listing Params

You can also list params with the magicParams.list() method:

const magicParams = require('magic-params')
 
const display = function (a, b) {
    ...
}
 
magicParams.list(display)
// Returns array: ['a', 'b']
