This is a Node.js port of the classic extend() method from jQuery. It behaves
as you would expect.

Comment 1 Tom Hughes 2014-03-10 18:57:06 UTC
As you would expect for a "port" there is an obvious bundling issue here - the code is largely copied from jQuery...

Comment 2 Jamie Nguyen 2014-03-10 20:17:48 UTC
Argh. For some reason that didn't register.

Think I'll just patch out the use of that jquery function in superagent.

Comment 3 T.C. Hollingsworth 2014-03-10 23:18:24 UTC
I'd say this is okay.  Requiring the nodejs "jquery" module for something like this is way overkill; you don't need a DOM implementation ("npm install jquery" drags in jsdom) to extend the contents of an array with another one.

But you already seemed to have patched it away so I guess it's not worth bothering over now.  Let me know if you want to revisit this, I think FPC would be okay with a general exception to expose small bits of jQuery like this.

Comment 4 Jamie Nguyen 2014-03-11 23:02:57 UTC
Thanks for the input T.C.!

When I find the energy I'll open an FPC ticket. It's quite a popular module (as of right now, 247 other modules list it as a dependency) so it would probably be worth getting into Fedora.
