As you know, there is a proposal for a shortcut for
.bind() function, so you can write:
and it will work like that in es5:
My question is: will it be possible to pass arguments this way?
I mean a way of writing this with the aforementioned shortcut:
It’s a pretty common pattern in React, so it would be nice to shorten it a little.
::obj.method ≡ obj.method.bind(obj)
“virtual method” calls
obj::function ≡ function.bind(obj) obj::function(…) ≡ function.call(obj, …)
Neither of them feature partial application. For what you want, you should use an arrow function:
(...args) => this.handleStuff('stuff', ...args) ≡ this.handleStuff.bind(this, 'stuff')
