javascript fixing the ‘new’ keyword

javascript fixing the lack of ‘new’ keyword when creating an instance of an object

when creating an instance of the object and forget to use the ‘new’ keyword
the ‘this’ variable will refer to the ‘window’ object.
we can use this behavior to initialize a fresh instance of the current object and return it.
this way we’ll be able to fix the issue and it would work the same as
if we used the ‘new’ keyword.

function Person() {
if(this === window) // someone forget to use the ‘new’ keyword
return new Person();

this.firstName = ‘Roby’;
this.lastName = ‘Cohen’;
this.sayYourName = function () {
return this.firstName + ‘ ‘ + this.lastName;

var person = Person(); // issue fixed by the Person constructor
var person2 = new Person(); // ok
