Make an object out of form elements

Getting Started

Download the production version or the development version.

To Use

$.fn.serializeObject makes an object out of form elements inside of the specified item.

Example:

<div id="test">
  <input name="text1" value="txt-one" />
  <input type="checkbox" name="top[child][]" value="1" checked="checked" />
  <input type="checkbox" name="top[child][]" value="2" checked="checked" />
  <input type="checkbox" name="top[child][]" value="3" checked="checked" />

  <select name="another[select]">
    <option value="opt"></option>
  </select>
</div>
$( '#test' ).serializeObject();

Returns

{ text1: "txt-one",
  top: {
    child: [ "1", "2", "3" ]
  },
  another: {
    select: "opt"
  }
}

Important notes

Please don't edit files in the dist subdirectory as they are generated via grunt. You'll find source code in the src subdirectory!

While grunt can run the included unit tests via PhantomJS, this shouldn't be considered a substitute for the real thing. Please be sure to test the test/*.html unit test file(s) in actual browsers.

Installing grunt

This assumes you have node.js and npm installed already.

  1. Test that grunt is installed globally by running grunt --version at the command-line.
  2. If grunt isn't installed globally, run npm install -g grunt to install the latest version. You may need to run sudo npm install -g grunt.
  3. From the root directory of this project, run npm install to install the project's dependencies.

Installing PhantomJS

In order for the qunit task to work properly, PhantomJS must be installed and in the system PATH (if you can run "phantomjs" at the command line, this task should work).

Unfortunately, PhantomJS cannot be installed automatically via npm or grunt, so you need to install it yourself. There are a number of ways to install PhantomJS.

Note that the phantomjs executable needs to be in the system PATH for grunt to see it.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
