Utilities for cloning, extending, and de-referencing objects in shallow, deep, and safe ways

Install

NPM

  • Install: npm install --save extendr
  • Use: require('extendr')

Browserify

  • Install: npm install --save extendr
  • Use: require('extendr')
  • CDN URL: //wzrd.in/bundle/extendr@3.1.0

Ender

  • Install: ender add extendr
  • Use: require('extendr')

Usage

API

  • require('extendr').extend(target, ...objects) - shallow extend the properties from the objects into the target
  • require('extendr').deep(target, ...objects) - deep extend the properties from the objects into the target
  • require('extendr').defaults(target, ...objects) - shallow extend the properties from the objects into the target where the target's value is undefined or null
  • require('extendr').deepDefaults(target, ...objects) - deep extend the properties from the objects into the target where the target's value is undefined or null
  • require('extendr').clone(...objects) - deep extend the properties from the objects into a new object
  • require('extendr').dereferenceJSON(object) - clones the object by stringifg it, then parsing the result, to ensure all references are destroyed (objects that not plain objects or arrays will be lost)

Implementation

  • Extendr arguments can only be plain JavaScript objects, anything else will throw. This is intentional to guarantee consistency of references.
  • Object property values that are plain objects or arrays will be dereferenced. All other object types will keep their reference.
