Untracked

Untracked allows you to run a piece of code without establishing observers. Like transaction, untracked is automatically applied by (@)action, so usually it makes more sense to use actions then untracked directly. Example:


const person = observable({
    firstName: "Michel",
    lastName: "Weststrate"
});

autorun(() => {
    console.log(
        person.lastName,
        ",",
        // this untracked block will return the person's firstName without establishing a dependency
        untracked(() => person.firstName)
    );
});
// prints: Weststrate, Michel

person.firstName = "G.K.";
// doesn't print!

person.lastName = "Chesterton";
// prints: Chesterton, G.K.
