to-object-path NPM version

Create an object path from a list or array of strings.


Install with npm

$ npm i to-object-path --save


var toPath = require('to-object-path');

toPath('foo', 'bar', 'baz');
toPath('foo', ['bar', 'baz']);
//=> ''

Also supports passing an arguments object (without having to slice args):

function foo()
  return toPath(arguments);

foo('foo', 'bar', 'baz');
foo('foo', ['bar', 'baz']);
//=> ''
