re: What's your thought about pseudoclassical OOP in JS? VIEW POST

re: To this day I've never found a good reason to try an OOP approach with JavaScript.

So you never used an object literal?


Sorry for the late reply, I had somehow missed this.

Yes, I have used object literals in JavaScript. I have also coded in an OOP paradigm with php. As Avalander said, they're different things. An object literal is a list of name-value pairs. OOP is a programing paradigm based on objects.


Using objects doesn't make your code object-oriented programming any more than using functions makes it functional programming. At least not if we go back to Alan Kay's intent when he coined the term.
