Function chain

Wrap any value in a chain, allowing to perform chained operations on the value.

All methods available in the js library can be called upon the chain, and then will be evaluated with the value itself as first argument. The chain can be closed by executing chain.done(), which returns the final value.

The chain has a number of special functions:

  • done() Finalize the chain and return the chain's value.
  • valueOf() The same as done()
  • toString() Executes format() onto the chain's value, returning a string representation of the value.




Parameter Type Description
value * A value of any type on which to start a chained operation.
