Simple Serialize

  id: 1,
  firstName: 'Joe',
  lastName: 'Doe',
  address: {
    id: 1,
  },
  images: [{ id: 1 }, { id: 2 }],
}

const serialized = serialize(entity, 'users', {
  relationships: ['address', 'images'],
  changeCase: CaseType.kebabCase,
})

console.log(JSON.stringify(serialized))

Serialize with transformers

// examples/serialize-with-transformers.js

      .withInput(user.images)
      .withTransformer(new DefaultTransformer('images'))

      .toContext()
  }
}

const user = {
  _id: 1,
  firstName: 'Joe',
  lastName: 'Doe',
  images: [{ _id: 5, url: 'http://' }],
}

const serialized = transform()
  .withInput(user)
