hydration

Type-accurate serialization of javascript objects

Type-accurate serialization of javascript objects

out-of-the-box support for Date, RegExp, arrays, buffers

var hydra = require('hydration')
var obj = {
  date: new Date(),
  regex: /^something/,
  array: ['of', 747]
}
 
// basic 
 
var dehydrated = hydra.dehydrate(obj)
// JSON.stringify + JSON.parse if you like 
var hydrated = hydra.hydrate(dehydrated)
 
// hydrated deepEquals obj 

you can add support for custom types yourself

var hydra = require('hydration')
 
function OogaBooga (name) {
  this.name = name
}
 
var custom = hydra()
custom.addType('oogabooga', {
  testfunction (val) {
    return val instanceof OogaBooga
  },
  dehydratefunction (val) {
    return val.name
  },
  hydratefunction (val) {
    return new OogaBooga(val)
  }
})
 
var obj = {
  //... 
  someprop: new OogaBooga('yum')
  //... 
}
 
var dehydrated = hydra.dehydrate(obj)
// JSON.stringify + JSON.parse if you like 
var hydrated = hydra.hydrate(dehydrated)

Thanks to @mvayngrib for Buffer and custom type support, and documentation.
