jQuery getObject: get.and.set.deep.objects.easily = true;

Version: 1.0, Last updated: 12/19/2009

jQuery getObject allows you to get and set properties of an object via dot-delimited name string. Inspired by the Dojo methods of the same names.

Visit the project page for more information and usage examples!

Note for Dojo users

The setObject, getObject, and exists methods are similar to their Dojo counterparts, with the exception that exists returns true or false based on whether or not a property is defined, not whether it is truthy.
