    @composi/merge-objects

    This function takes objects and returns a new object with all of their properties. The last object's properties will replace those of the earlier when these have the same name. Since arrays are also objects, this will merge a series of arrays together.

    Merge does a deep copy of objects, but ignores non-iterable properties.

    Note:

    Passing in non-object values, such as string or numbers, will result in unpredictable results. Merge must be used only for combining objects or arrays. Although this handles objects or arrays, you cannot merge objects and arrays together, this will create an unexecpte result.

    Install

    npm install --save-dev @composi/merge-objects
    

    Using

    Merge two objects:

    import { mergeObjects } from '@composi/merge-objects'
     
    const obj1 = {name: 'Mary'}
    const obj2 = {job: 'project manager'}
    const person = mergeObjects(obj1, obj2)
    // returns {name: 'Mary', job: 'project manager'}

    Clone an Object

    You can clone an object with merge. Just pass in the object. The return object will be a clone:

    import { mergeObjects } from '@composi/merge-objects'
     
    const obj1 = {name: 'Joe', job: 'mechanic'}
    const obj2 = mergeObjects(obj1)
    obj1 === obj2 // returns false

    Merge Arrays Together

    You can use mergeObjects to merge any number of arrays together. This is a deep clone, which means you can use it safely with arrays of objects.

     
      const arr1 = [{name: 'Joe'}, {name: 'Jane'}]
      const arr2 = [{name: 'Mary'}, {name: 'Sam'}]
      const arr3 = mergeObjects(arr1, arr2)
      // arr3 equals [{name: 'Joe'}, {name: 'Jane'}, {name: 'Mary'}, {name: 'Sam'}])
      arr1[0].name = 'Joseph' // [{name: 'Joseph'}, {name: 'Jane'}]
      arr2[1].name = 'Samuel' // [{name: 'Mary'}, {name: 'Samuel'}]
      // The above changes do not affect arr3:
      // [{name: 'Joe'}, {name: 'Jane'}, {name: 'Mary'}, {name: 'Sam'}])

    ## Clone an Array

    If you want to clone an array, just pass it as the argument:

    const arr1 = [{name: 'Joe'}, {name: 'Jane'}]
    // Create clone of arr1:
    const clonedArr1 = mergeObjects(arr1)
    arr1[0].name = 'Joseph'
    arr2[0].name // 'Joe'
