Javascript extend prototype, and for-in

    You shouldn't use a for-in loop to loop over an array.

    for (var i = 0, len = arr.length; i < len; ++i) {

    for in is used for iterating the keys of an object.

    Objects in JavaScript have an internal property known as prototype. It is simply a reference to another object and contains common attributes/

    If you really need to do this, use

    Object.defineProperty(Array.prototype, 'first', {
        value: function() { return this[0]; },
        enumerable: false

    But some consider this a bad practice. Think twice before doing it.

    object is a property.

    The root object in JavaScript is Object.prototype and all other objects are descendants of this one. The __proto__ property of the root object is null, which represents the end of inheritance chain. You'll notice that prototype is a property of functions.

    Evan is correct. However, when using statements in javascript, it is always best to test that the current attribute is a property of the object and not something inherited from the prototype chain:

    for(var attr in obj){
           // first will not appear here

    JavaScript is a prototype-based language, meaning object properties to use the constructor function to extend prototypes into new objects.

    Inheritance in most class-based object-oriented languages is a mechanism in which one object acquires all the properties and behaviors of another object. JavaScript is not a class-based language…

    The constructor property returns a reference to the Object constructor function that created the instance object. Note that the value of this property is a reference to the function itself, not a string containing the function's name.

    The JavaScript prototype chain is a little different than how most languages work, so it can be tricky understand. It doesn’t make it any easier when JavaScript gets syntax that makes it looks more like other languages, like inheriting Java’s new operator.

    When it comes to inheritance, JavaScript only has one construct: objects. Each object has a private property which holds a link to another object called its prototype. That prototype object has a prototype of its own, and so on until an object is reached with null as its prototype.

    The prototype of Person.prototype is Object.prototype. You can go from statement 1 to 2 by first substituting Person with Object, and then substituting alex with Person.prototype. To recap, we have seen that the prototype of alex is Person.prototype, and the prototype of Person.prototype is Object.prototype.

    Two awesome javascript inheritance libraries that come to mind are klass and selfish.js (I've used both, they're amazing.) – bejonbee Sep 20 '11 at 14:41 I have used Klass but there is some problem in overriding array variables.

    In this article, we learned about objects in JavaScript, that the old phrase “everything in JavaScript is an object” is not quite true, and finally about Prototypes and Prototype Chains. These are very important concepts to know, because they are core to JavaScript, and to Object-Oriented programming concepts.

    The prototype is an object that is associated with every functions and objects by default in JavaScript, where function's prototype property is accessible and modifiable and object's prototype property (aka attribute) is not visible. Every function includes prototype object by default. Prototype in JavaScript.

    On a parting note I would like to remark that there are two patterns of prototypal inheritance: the prototypal pattern and the constructor pattern. The prototypal pattern is the canonical pattern of prototypal inheritance whereas the constructor pattern is used to make prototypal inheritance look more like classical inheritance.
