Deep understanding of javascript prototype and prototype chain

One, function object

  1. __proto: all reference types (functions, arrays, objects) have properties (implicit prototypes)
  2. Prototype: all functions have the prototype property (explicit prototype) (functions only)
  3. Constructor all prototype s have a constructor property that points to the associated constructor

When we declare a function keyword method, we will add a prototype property to the method, pointing to the default prototype object, and the constructor property of the prototype also points to the method object. These two properties are referenced by the object's properties when the object is created.

function Hello() {}; // Constructor
var h = new Hello();  // Instanced object

// Constructor has a prototype property
console.log(Hello.prototype); // Object {}
// The prototype property of a constructor has a constructor property that points to the constructor itself
console.log(Hello.prototype.constructor === Hello); // true

// Instantiated object has no prototype property
console.log(h.prototype); // undefined
// The constructor property of the instantiated object points to the constructor itself
console.log(h.constructor); // function Hello(){}
// Namely
console.log(h.constructor === Hello.prototype.constructor); // true 

// getPrototypeOf is to get the__
console.log(Object.getPrototypeOf(h) === Hello.prototype); // true  
// Namely
console.log(h.__proto__ === Hello.prototype); // true
console.log(h.__proto__ === h.constructor.prototype); //true
// Namely
console.log(Hello.prototype === h.constructor.prototype); //true

1. Difference between prototype and proto

2. Who does the proto attribute point to

/*1,Literal measure*/
var a = {};
console.log(a.constructor); //Function Object() {[native code]} (constructor Object)
console.log(a.__proto__ === a.constructor.prototype); //true

/*2,Constructor mode*/
var A = function (){}; 
var a = new A();
console.log(a.constructor); // function() {} (that is, constructor function A)
console.log(a.__proto__ === a.constructor.prototype); //true

var a1 = {a:1} 
var a2 = Object.create(a1);
console.log(a2.constructor); //Function object() {[native code]} (constructor Object)
console.log(a2.__proto__ === a1);// true 
console.log(a2.__proto__ === a2.constructor.prototype); //false (this is the exception in Figure 1)
