Typescript support

immhelper.d.ts

declare namespace ImmHelper {
    // tuple [selector, action, ...args]
    type UpdateSpec<T> = [(model: T) => any, string | Function, ...any[]];
    interface Update {
        <T>(model: T, ...specs: UpdateSpec<T>[]): T;

        default: ImmHelper.Update;
    }
}

declare var updatePath: ImmHelper.Update;
export = updatePath;

Usages

/// <reference path="./immhelper.d.ts"/>
import { updatePath, $push, $set } from "immhelper";
const state = {
  a: {
    b: {
      c: []
    }
  }
};
const newState1 = updatePath(
  state,
  [x => x.a.b.c, $push, 1, 2, 3],
  [x => x.a.b, $set, "newProp", 100]
);
// this is shorter way but there are some limitations
// 1. Do not try to get prop value from obj, using originalState to get value instead
// 2. Only mutating actions are allowed
// 3. Mutating actions must be defined by using define(actionName, func) or define({ actionName: func })
const newState2 = updatePath(
  state,
  x => x.a.b.c.push(1, 2, 3),
  x => (x.a.b.newProp = 100)
);
console.log(newState1, newState2);

Mutating actions

[$push, ...items]
['push', ...items]
actions.push(target, ...items)
actions.$push(target, ...items)

push() all the items in array on the target

[$pop]
['pop']
actions.pop(target)
actions.$pop(target)

[$unshift, ...items]
['unshift', ...items]
actions.unshift(target, ...items)
actions.$unshift(target, ...items)

unshift() all the items in array on the target.

[$splice, index, count, ...items]
['splice', index, count, ...items]
actions.splice(target, index, count, ...items)
actions.$splice(target, index, count, ...items)

splice() remove item at specified index and push new items at there.

[$remove, ...items]
['remove', ...items]
actions.remove(target, ...items)
actions.$remove(target, ...items)

remove specified items from target array

[$removeAt, ...indexes]
['removeAt', ...indexes]
actions.removeAt(target, ...indexes)
actions.$removeAt(target, ...indexes)

remove items from array by indexes

[$set, value]
['set', value]
actions.set(target, value)
actions.$pop(target, value)

replace the target entirely.

[$set, prop, value]
['set', prop, value]
actions.set(target, prop, value)
actions.$set(target, prop, value)

set value for specified prop of the target

[$toggle]
['toggle']
actions.toggle(target)
actions.$toggle(target)

toggle target's value.

[$toggle, ...props]
['toggle', ...props]
actions.toggle(target, ...props)
actions.$toggle(target, ...props)

toggle all prop values of the target

[$unset, ...props]
['unset', ...props]
actions.unset(target, ...props)
actions.$unset(target, ...props)

remove keys from the target object or set undefined for array indexes

[$assign, ...objects]
['assign' ...objects]
actions.assign(target ...objects)
actions.$assign(target, ...objects)

copy the values of all enumerable own properties from one or more source objects to a target object

define(actionName, actionFunc, disableAutoClone)

define new mutating action, if disableAutoClone = true, original value will be passed instead of cloned value. Set disableAutoClone = true if you want to handle value manually, return original value if no change needed.

define("removeAt", function(originalArray, index) {
  // nothing to remove
  if (index >= originalArray.length) return originalArray;
  const newArray = originalArray.slice();
  newArray.splice(index, 1);
  return newArray;
}, true);

Special use cases

import { without, compact, zip } from "lodash";
import { define, updatePath } from "immhelper";

define({
  "+"(current, value) {
    return current + value;
  },
  "-"(current, value) {
    return current - value;
  },
  without,
  compact,
  zip
});

const state = { counter: 0 };

updatePath(state, [x => x.counter, "+", 1]);
updatePath(state, [x => x.counter, "-", 1]);

Define custom mutating actions

import { define, $set } from "immhelper";
define({
  "=": $set,
  addOne(currentValue, ...args) {
    return currentValue + 1;
  }
});
