const songs = [
  {title: 'Bluebird', artist: 'One Self'},
  {title: 'Sunshine', artist: 'Atmosphere'}
];

//   Bluebird: { title: 'Bluebird', artist: 'One Self' },
//   Sunshine: { title: 'Sunshine', artist: 'Atmosphere' }
// }

const arrayToObj = require('array-to-obj');
 
const browsers = [
  {engine: 'Blink', name: 'Chrome'},
  {engine: 'Gecko', name: 'Firefox'}
];
 
arrayToObj(browsers, {
  key: browser => browser.engine.toLowerCase()
});
 
// {
//   blink: { engine: 'Blink', name: 'Chrome' },

    try {
      return book.meta.upc;
    } catch (error) {
      return shortid.generate();
    }
  }
});

Pass a function as a key generator

const arrayToObj = require('array-to-obj');
const shortid = require('shortid');
 
const movies = [
  {released: '2001', title: 'Spirited Away'},
