collection-deep-merge

1.2.2 • Public • Published

collection-deep-merge Build Status

Genereal purpose arrays of objects by key merger.

Ready for browsers (const, let compatible) and node.js v4+. IE11+, FF36+, Safari5.1+, Android

Works well as redux store helper.

Extensible via custom merger and comparator (Dependency Injection factory). Look more below.

It does not mutate arguments, it returns a new collection (Immutability).

usage

Open test.js with examples

const mergeById = mergeCollectionsBy('id')
 
//
// Deep merge object-items
const list1 = [ { a: 1, b: { c: 1 } }, { a: 2, b: { d: 2 } } ];
const list2 = [ { a: 1, b: { c: 3 } }, { a: 2, b: { c: 4 } } ];
const merged = [ { a: 1, b: { c: 3 } }, { a: 2, b: { c: 4, d: 2 } } ];
 
mergeById(list, [ item ]) ==== merged // deep equal
 
//
// Merge item with a collection
const list = [ { a: 1, b: 2 }, { a: 2, d: 4 } ];
const item = { a: 1, c: 3 };
const merged = [{ a: 1, b: 2, c: 3 }, { a: 2, d: 4 }]
 
mergeById(list, [ item ]) ==== merged // deep equal

tips & tricks

Custom item[key]s comparators and items mergers

const mergeCollectionsBy = require('collection-deep-merge');
const is = (a, b) => a !== undefined && a === b;
 
// You can merge in a shallow manner
// or implement very custom strategy
const merge = (a, b) => {/* custom merger */};
 
const mergeDeepById = mergeCollectionsBy('id', { is, merge });

Shallow merge

import mergeCollectionsBy, { mergeShallow } = 'collection-deep-merge';
const mergeShallowById = mergeCollectionsBy('id', { merge: mergeShallow });

Nested collections

You can implement custom merger based on const { mergeDeep } = require('collection-deep-merge') with an especial behaviour on nested collections.

You should support followed api:

  • merger is immutable
  • merger invokes with (Object a, Object b) args
  • merger returns Object c

Alternatives

array-join

collection-deep-merge like its fullJoin with deep item-objects merge

Map from ES6

New native Map has all you need:

  • preserve order
  • O(1) access
  • iterable

You can implement tiny union function (w/o deep items merging):

function union(map1, map2) {
  return new Map([...map1, ...map2]);
}

or you can use the collection-deep-merge if you want to merge items deeply O(n*m) + O(?) complexity (n*m not so good; ? stands for deep merge).

import mergeArrays from 'collection-deep-merge';
const mergeById = mergeArrays('id', { eq: (item1, item2) => {} });
const mergeMapsById = (map1, map2) => {
  mergeById([...map1], [...map2])
};

or ... // todo: create map-deep-union library special for Maps with O(n)+O(?) complexity.
