This module will take paths in documents which can include nested paths specified by '.'s and can evaluate the path to a value, or can set the value at that path depending on the function called.

Installation

$ npm install doc-path

Usage

let path = require('doc-path');

API

path.evaluatePath(document, key)

  • document - Object - A JSON document that will be iterated over.
  • key - String - A path to the existing key whose value will be returned.

If the key does not exist, undefined is returned.

path.evaluatePath Example:
const path = require('doc-path');
 
let document = {
    Make: 'Nissan',
    Model: 'Murano',
    Year: '2013',
    Specifications: {
        Mileage: '7106',
        Trim: 'S AWD'
    },
    Features: [
        {
            feature: 'A/C',
            packages: [
                {name: 'Base'},
                {name: 'Premium'}
            ]
        },
        {
            feature: 'Radio',
            packages: [
                {name: 'Convenience'},
                {name: 'Premium'}
            ]
        }
    ]
};
 
console.log(path.evaluatePath(document, 'Make'));
// => 'Nissan'
 
console.log(path.evaluatePath(document, 'Specifications.Mileage'));
// => '7106'
 
console.log(path.evaluatePath(document, 'Features.feature'));
// => [ 'A/C', 'Radio' ]
 
console.log(path.evaluatePath(document, 'Features.packages.name'));
// => [ ['Base', 'Premium'], ['Convenience', 'Premium'] ]

path.setPath(document, key, value)

  • document - Object - A JSON document that will be iterated over.
  • key - String - A path to the existing key whose value will be set.
  • value - * - The value that will be set at the given key.

If the key does not exist, then the object will be built up to have that path. If no document is provided, an error will be thrown.

path.setPath Example:

const path = require('doc-path');
 
let document = {
    Make: 'Nissan',
    Features: [
        { feature: 'A/C' }
    ]
};
 
console.log(path.setPath(document, 'Color.Interior', 'Tan'));
/*
   { 
    Make: 'Nissan',
    Features: [
    { feature: 'A/C' }
    ]
    Color: { 
    Interior: 'Tan'
    }
   }
*/
 
console.log(path.setPath(document, 'StockNumber', '34567'));
/*
   { 
    Make: 'Nissan',
    Features: [
    { feature: 'A/C' }
    ]
    Color: { 
    Interior: 'Tan'
    },
    StockNumber: '34567'
   }
*/
 
console.log(path.setPath(document, 'Features.cost', '$0 (Standard)'));
 /*
    { 
    Make: 'Nissan',
    Features: [
    {
    feature: 'A/C',
    cost: '$0 (Standard)'
    }
    ]
    Color: { 
    Interior: 'Tan'
    },
    StockNumber: '34567'
    }
 */
