      • Editions

        This package is published with the following editions:

        • extendr aliases extendr/index.js which uses Editions to automatically select the correct edition for the consumers environment
        • extendr/source/index.js is Source + ESNext + Require
        • extendr/es2015/index.js is Babel Compiled + ES2015 + Require

        Older environments may need Babel's Polyfill or something similar.

        • require('extendr').extend(target, ...objects) - shallow extend the properties from the objects into the target
        • require('extendr').deep(target, ...objects) - deep extend the properties from the objects into the target
        • require('extendr').defaults(target, ...objects) - shallow extend the properties from the objects into the target where the target's value is undefined or null
        • require('extendr').deepDefaults(target, ...objects) - deep extend the properties from the objects into the target where the target's value is undefined or null
        • require('extendr').clone(...objects) - deep extend the properties from the objects into a new object
        • require('extendr').dereferenceJSON(object) - clones the object by stringifg it, then parsing the result, to ensure all references are destroyed (objects that not plain objects or arrays will be lost)
        • Extendr arguments can only be plain JavaScript objects, anything else will throw. This is intentional to guarantee consistency of references.
        • Object property values that are plain objects or arrays will be dereferenced. All other object types will keep their reference.
