Inheritance with chakracore-delphi

I’ve just pushed some updates to chakracore-delphi.

A new feature worth mentioning is support for inheritance (I mean Javascript-style, “prototypical inheritance“) in both directions. Suppose the following hierarchy:

First, here is Shape the “superclass”, defined in Javascript:

Next comes Circle, a “subclass” of Shape, defined in Javascript as well:

The following is Rectangle, defined in Pascal, as a “subclass” of Shape:

Here’s Square, defined in Javascript again, as a “subclass” of Rectangle:

And finally here are the tests, demonstrating that
– (Javascript) Circle descends from (Javascript) Shape
– (Pascal) Rectangle descends from (Javascript) Shape
– (Javascript) Square descends from (Pascal) Rectangle

As always, you can grab the latest code on GitHub. Cheers!
