n8iv.js build status

n8iv is a functional programming library – for modern javascript engines – which correctly extends JavaScript Natives. Giving you a – relatively – safe and easy to use API, to make your code more succinct and efficient.

n8iv is based on the awesomeness of prototypejs.

If you like the idea of having one global variable with a bunch of static functions – in no particular order – attached to it, then this is probably not the framework for you.

If you think that extending JavaScript Natives is a "bad part" of JavaScript, then this is probably not the framework for you.

If, however, you like your methods bound to your types, then come on in and sit a spell!

n8iv will not overwrite any implementations – native or otherwise – of any methods, properties or accessors already defined.

Dependencies

n8iv.js only has one dependency m8.js.

NOTE: If you are using n8iv within a commonjs module, you don't need to require m8 before requiring n8iv as this is done internally and a reference to m8 is available as: n8iv.m8.


   var n8iv = require( 'n8iv' ),
       m8  = n8iv.m8; // <= reference to m8

// if running in a sandboxed environment remember to:
   m8.x( Object, Array, Boolean, Function, String ); // and/ or any other Types that require extending.
// alternatively, this does the same and returns the n8iv global
   n8iv( Object, Array, Boolean, Function, String );

See m8: Extending into the future for more information on working with sandboxed modules.

Support

Tested to work with nodejs, FF4+, Safari 5+, Chrome 7+, IE9+. Should technically work in any browser that supports ecma 5 without throwing any JavaScript errors.
