    There is a nice feature of JSON.stringify that removes undefined object properties which works as follows:

    var obj: {
      a: 'test',
      b: null,
      c: undefined
    }
     
    console.log(JSON.stringify(obj)) // '{"a":"test","b":null}'

    This makes for handy formatting of JSON when responding to requests. This module provides some utility methods for working with undefined object properties, so if you're sick of writing or seeing typeof x !== undefined multiple times in your codebase when using the above method to format JSON, this module comes in handy.

    Usage:

    var defined = require('isdefined')
     
    var x = {
      a: true
    }
     
    console.log(defined.is_defined(x.a)) // true
     
    console.log(defined.is_defined(x.b)) // false
     
    console.log(defined.boolean_to_binary(x.a)) // 1 /* handy for when 1 or 0 is used for storing true/false */
     
    console.log(defined.boolean_to_binary(x.b)) // undefined
     
    // useful for the likes of this statement:
    var test = typeof x['a'] !== 'undefined' ? (i['active'] == 1) : undefined
    // converts to
    var test = defined.binary_to_boolean(x['a'])
