About stdlib...

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

propertyDescriptor

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

Return a property descriptor for an object's own property.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/utils-property-descriptor

Usage

var propertyDescriptor = require( '@stdlib/utils-property-descriptor' );

propertyDescriptor( obj, property )

Returns a property descriptor for an object's own property.

var obj = {
    'a': 1,
    'b': 2
};

var desc = propertyDescriptor( obj, 'a' );
// returns {'configurable':true,'enumerable':true,'writable':true,'value':1}

Notes

  • This function differs from the built-in Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor() as follows:

    • If provided null or undefined, the function returns null, rather than throwing an error.
    • If an object does not have a provided property, the function returns null, rather than undefined.

Examples

var defineProperty = require( '@stdlib/utils-define-property' );
var propertyDescriptor = require( '@stdlib/utils-property-descriptor' );

function Foo() {
    this.beep = 'boop';
    this.a = {
        'b': 'c'
    };
    defineProperty( this, 'baz', {
        'value': 'qux',
        'configurable': true,
        'writable': true,
        'enumerable': false
    });
    return this;
}

Foo.prototype.foo = [ 'bar' ];

var obj = new Foo();
var desc = propertyDescriptor( obj, 'baz' );

console.log( desc );
// => {'configurable':true,'enumerable':false,'writable':true,'value':'qux'}
