πŸŽ› Extending Controller

You can use inheritance to extend the functionality of any Stimulus component:

import Lightbox from 'stimulus-lightbox'

export default class extends Lightbox {
  connect() {
    super.connect()
    console.log('Do what you want here.')

    // Default options for every lightboxes.
    this.defaultOptions
  }

  // You can set default options in this getter.
  get defaultOptions() {
    return {
      // Your default options here
    }
  }
}

This controller will automatically have access to targets defined in the parent class.

If you override the connect, disconnect or any other methods from the parent, you'll want to call super.method() to make sure the parent functionality is executed.
