Nan::Callback makes it easier to use v8::Function handles as callbacks. A class that wraps a v8::Function handle, protecting it from garbage collection and making it particularly useful for storage and use across asynchronous execution.

### Nan::Callback

class Callback {

  explicit Callback(const v8::Local<v8::Function> &fn);


  bool operator==(const Callback &other) const;

  bool operator!=(const Callback &other) const;

  v8::Local<v8::Function> operator*() const;

  v8::Local<v8::Value> operator()(v8::Local<v8::Object> target,
                                  int argc = 0,
                                  v8::Local<v8::Value> argv[] = 0) const;

  v8::Local<v8::Value> operator()(int argc = 0,
                                  v8::Local<v8::Value> argv[] = 0) const;

  void SetFunction(const v8::Local<v8::Function> &fn);

  v8::Local<v8::Function> GetFunction() const;

  bool IsEmpty() const;

  void Reset(const v8::Local<v8::Function> &fn);

  void Reset();

  v8::Local<v8::Value> Call(v8::Local<v8::Object> target,
                            int argc,
                            v8::Local<v8::Value> argv[]) const;

  v8::Local<v8::Value> Call(int argc, v8::Local<v8::Value> argv[]) const;

Example usage:

v8::Local<v8::Function> function;
Nan::Callback callback(function);
callback.Call(0, 0);
