    What is DataField

    DataField is a library that helps you wrangle your awesome collections of data you obtain from different sources.

    Imagine you are building a web application that deals with users. You make an API request and receive an array of 100 entries which look like this one below:

      "_id": "5b420ae94fe6464ff91f5de8",
      "index": 0,
      "guid": "871eebf0-9983-4eb5-a0b5-59372a2fbecd",
      "isActive": true,
      "balance": "$1,268.06",
      "age": 41,
      "name": {
        "first": "Pearlie",
        "last": "Osborne"
      "company": "PIVITOL",
      "email": "",
      "phone": "+1 (992) 418-2307",
      "address": "190 River Street, Spelter, Tennessee, 1088",
      "registered": "Monday, April 18, 2016 7:35 AM",
      "tags": ["ad", "magna", "aliqua"],
      "friends": [{"id": 0, "name": "Whitney Snow"}, {"id": 1, "name": "Garza Hernandez"}, {"id": 2,"name": "Lourdes Conley"}]

    With this library it is rather easy to perform various actions on your data.

    How It Works

    const users = new DataField(arrayOfUsers)

    Now your data is stored in an instance of DataField class.

    Each method that performs any kind of selection or filtering returns a new instance of DataField and can be chained.

    Math methods return primitives and can not be chained

    To extract your data use .values() or toArray()

    Lets filter our data. We need users who are 30 years old or older, but not 41 years old and have at least 2 friends, but less than 10. Also we want our list sorted by last name in descending order. Then we are done so we want an array out of that:

    users.where('age').gte(30).not(41).where('friends').range(2, 10).sort({by: 'name.last', order: 'desc'}).toArray()

    Or you can go more object-oriented way (this one below is kinda weird request although):

      range: [8, 88],
      lte: 18,
      gt: 60,
      not: 42,
      is: false

    That's it. API is short and simple. Also, read the Documentation
