heterarchy

Cooperative multiple inheritance for CoffeeScript, à-la Python.

Adds multiple inheritance support to CoffeeScript (and JavaScript). It uses the C3 linearization algorithm as described in the famous Dylan paper.

Example

The library handles multiple inheritance and chains calls to super in a linear order, solving the diamond problem and allowing for cooperative methods. For example, the following class heterarchy:

Can be implemented with the following code.

{multi} = require 'heterarchy'

class A
    method: -> "A"

class B extends A
    method: -> "B > #{super}"

class C extends A
    method: -> "C > #{super}"

class D extends multi B, C
    method: -> "D > #{super}"

Calling method on a D instance would return the string D > B > C > A showing the class linearization.
