Consider Making Dot Notation into a Smart Accessor for ZWrapper
Open, MediumPublic



In order to ensure that a given member in a ZWrapper is available, it is necessary to call resolve (or resolveKey or resolveKeyEphemeral if the result of resolution is to be persisted). It isn't always obvious which members of a ZObject have already been resolved.

It would be cleaner if the dot notation on ZWrappers were defined as a smart getter: it would attempt to resolve the requested element ephemerally if not already resolved, then return the result of that resolution.

The block beginning if ( evaluator.allowCustomDerializers ) in src/implementation.js is a good place to see where this functionality might be useful: instead of explicitly calling resolveKey everywhere, we could simply use the dot notation directly, and resolveKey would automatically be called on any object that has not yet been resolved.
