JavaScript: Design Patterns

Developers often encounter coding problems in JavaScript that can be solved by using well-established design patterns. Because JavaScript is not a traditional Object Oriented programming language, design patterns are harder to discern, but not impossible to accomplish.

Design patterns are not code snippets that can be used directly in your code (like a data structure). Rather, they’re a recipe for how to solve a problem in software engineering. Design patterns are structured best practices that the programmer can use to solve common problems when developing (or designing) an application or system.

It is important for developers to be able to recognize and apply these patterns correctly to avoid reinventing the wheel. I will detail some commonly used design patterns in JavaScript to show it is possible to use design patterns in the JavaScript world.

  • Creational Patterns
  • Behavioral Patterns
  • Structural Patterns
  • Cleaner, Clearer Code
