Reference

Troop features

  • multiple inheritance with traits
  • makes use of ES5 property attributes
    • pseudo-privates are non-enumerable
    • constants are actually read-only
  • testing mode for applying mock methods
  • postponed, on-demand property definitions
  • delegation of instantiation with surrogates
  • support for instance memoization

Troop is distinguished from other OOP-related libs such as MooTools or Backbone by

  • not littering your classes and instances with its own meta-properties
  • non-declarative API leads to better IDE integration
  • offering simpler unit testing with built-in mocks to speed up TDD process

Example

var MyClass = troop.Base.extend()
    .addPrivate({
        _secret: "ufo" // static private property
    })
    .addPublic({
        hello: "world" // static public property
    })
    .addConstants({
        pi: 3.14 // static public constant
    })
    .addMethods({
        init: function (who) {
            this.addPublic({
                hello: who
            });
        }
    });

var myInstance = MyClass.create("all");
