Build Status

TupperwareJS is a dependency injection system for NodeJS that can be used in either functional or object-oriented contexts.

Getting Started

Install via npm using the following command in Terminal:

npm install --save tupperware

Object Usage

var tupperware = require('tupperware')
var container  = tupperware.create()

set( name [, options], value )

Adds a new value to your container's registry.

container.set('foo', function () {
  return 'foo'

container.set('bar', function (foo) {
  // The `foo` function will be called and injected into
  // the `bar` function
  return foo + 'bar'
Storing Functions as Values

By default, TupperwareJS stores functions as resolvable factories. If you want to store a function that will simply be returned (without be called), you can use the isValue option to store it as a value.

container.set('foo', { isValue: true }, function () {
  return 'foo'
Explicitly Define Argument Names

If you're planning on doing anything that obscures the argument names for a function (namely, minification), then you'll want to provide the names manually. You can do this using the inject option which should be an array of argument names.

container.set('foo', { inject: ['foo', 'bar'] }, function (a, b) {
  return a + b

get( name [, options] )

Resolves a set function's dependencies (and their dependencies) and then returns the value. It should be noted that stored functions (that are not values) will cache their result and that result will be used for all subsequent requests.

// => `foobar`

One added bonus of TupperwareJS is that any stored value can be returned as a factory object. Simply suffix the name of the argument with Factory and use the make() function when creating new instances of the value you are resolving.

container.set('random', function () {
  return Math.random()

container.inject(function (randomFactory) {
  var result1 = randomFactory.make() // => 0.2343245345
  var result2 = randomFactory.make() // => 0.6756572454
  var result3 = randomFactory.make() // => 0.4521243624
Optional Arguments

Sometimes, you might want to make certain arguments optional. Using the optional option allows you to specify an array of argument names that will insert null if a specified argument can't be resolved.

var result = container.get('bar', { optional: ['foo'] }, function (foo) {
  if (!foo) {
    return 'no foo set yet'
// => 'no foo set yet'
Overriding Resolved Values

Coming soon.

inject( [options, ] fn )

Automatically determines the dependencies of the given function and resolves them without the need of registering the function with the container.

container.inject(function (bar) {
  return bar + 'baz'
// => `foobarbaz`

provide( name, [options] )

Packages a container value into a function that can be called / resolve without the container object.

var bar = container.provide('bar')

// => `foobar`

Functional Usage

Coming soon.

register( registry, name, [options, ] value )

Identical to set() above, except that a registry object is needed as the first argument.

var register = tupperware.register
var registry = {}

register(registry, 'foo', function () {
  return 'foo'

// => 'foo'

resolve( registry, name [, options] )

Indentical to get() above, except that a registry object is needed as the first argument.

var resolve  = tupperware.resolve
var registry = { foo: 'bar' }

var foo = resolve(registry, 'foo')
// => 'bar'

inject( registry, fn [, options] )

Identical to inject() above, except that a registry object is needed as the first argument.

var inject    = tupperware.inject
var registry  = { name: 'world' }

var result = inject(registry, function (name) {
  return 'hello' + name
// => 'hello world'

provide( registry, name [, options] )

Identical to provide() above, except that a registry object is needed as the first argument.

var provide  = tupperware.provide
var registry = { foo: 'bar' }

var result = provide(registry, 'foo')

// => 'bar'

annotate( fn )

Returns an array containing all of the argument names for the given function.

var annotate = tupperware.annotate

var args = annotate(function (foo, bar) {})
// => ['foo', 'bar']
