auto-bind

Automatically bind methods to their class instance

It also correctly binds inherited properties.

Install

npm install auto-bind

Usage

import autoBind from 'auto-bind';

class Unicorn {
	constructor(name) {
		this.name = name;
		autoBind(this);
	}

	message() {
		return `${this.name} is awesome!`;
	}
}

const unicorn = new Unicorn('Rainbow');

// Grab the method off the class instance
const message = unicorn.message;

// Still bound to the class instance
message();
//=> 'Rainbow is awesome!'

// Without `autoBind(this)`, the above would have resulted in
message();
//=> Error: Cannot read property 'name' of undefined
