I'm testing OpenLayers 6 beta. ol.inherits looks missing in OpenLayers 6.

ol.inherits(ol.source.NowMap, ol.source.OSM);

This causes error

Uncaught TypeError: ol.inherits is not a function

What should I use instead?


It's mentioned in the update notes https://github.com/openlayers/openlayers/blob/master/changelog/upgrade-notes.md

A simple fix which the ol-ext library uses is to replace it with the something based on the old function

var ol_ext_inherits = function(child,parent) {
  child.prototype = Object.create(parent.prototype);
  child.prototype.constructor = child;

or see the OL6 examples for a method which will need some recoding https://openlayers.org/en/master/examples/custom-controls.html https://openlayers.org/en/master/examples/custom-interactions.html
