mixin-object NPM version NPM monthly downloads NPM total downloads Linux Build Status

Mixin the own and inherited properties of other objects onto the first object. Pass an empty object as the first arg to shallow clone.

Follow this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, for updates on this project and others.


Install with npm:

$ npm install --save mixin-object

If you only want to combine own-properties, use extend-shallow.


var mixin = require('mixin-object');

var obj = {c: 'c'};
var foo = mixin({a: 'a'}, {b: 'b'});
//=> {c: 'c', a: 'a', b: 'b'}
//=> {c: 'c'}

mixin({}, {a: 'a'}, {b: 'b'});
//=> {a: 'a', b: 'b'}
