A user has expressed interest in this feature for interface reflection (see dependencies); will work on this next.

Reflection in ECMAScript is accomplished through the use of for..in and similar statements. In the case of for..in, there are two issues ease.js faces:

  • Certain members may not be enumerable
  • Protected, private and static members are not part of the conventional prototype chain (unless falling back)
  • We must expose the keywords used to create the members, as well as additional metadata.

Additional details will be considered once development gets underway. Some initial planning was done a while back and must be dug up from Mike's notes.
