Example

var deep = require('js-dict-deep');

var obj = {
    foo: {
      'bar.baz': 'qux',
      foo: [
        "foo1", "foo2"
      ],
      bar: [
        {id:1, name:"bar1"},
        {id:2, name: "bar2"},
      ]
    }
  };


console.log(deep(obj, "foo.bar[1]"))
//Get -> {id: 2, name: 'bar2'}
console.log(deep(obj, "foo.bar[id=3]"))
//Get -> undefined  # object not exist
console.log(deep(obj, "foo.sir.bar"))
//Get -> undefined # path not exist

deep(obj, "foo.sir.name", "bar22")
console.log(JSON.stringify(obj))
//Set -> {"foo":{"bar.baz":"qux","foo":["foo1","foo2"],"bar":[{"id":1,"name":"bar1"},{"id":2,"name":"bar2"}]}}
# path not exist
deep(obj, "foo.bar[id=3].name", "bar22")
console.log(JSON.stringify(obj))
//Set -> {"foo":{"bar.baz":"qux","foo":["foo1","foo2"],"bar":[{"id":1,"name":"bar1"},{"id":2,"name":"bar2"}]}}
# object not exist
deep(obj, "foo.bar[3].name", "ba2r22")
console.log(JSON.stringify(obj))  
//Set -> {"foo":{"bar.baz":"qux","foo":["foo1","foo2"],"bar":[{"id":1,"name":"bar1"},{"id":2,"name":"bar2"}]}}
# index object not exist
deep(obj, "foo.bar[0].name", "bar--00")
console.log(JSON.stringify(obj))  
//Set -> {"foo":{"bar.baz":"qux","foo":["foo1","foo2","ba2r22"],"bar":[{"id":1,"name":"bar--00"},{"id":2,"name":"bar2"}]}}
# Set success for existing object
deep(obj, "foo.foo[4]", "ba2r22")
console.log(JSON.stringify(obj))
//Set -> {"foo":{"bar.baz":"qux","foo":["foo1","foo2","ba2r22"],"bar":[{"id":1,"name":"bar--00"},{"id":2,"name":"bar2"}]}}
# Add item to list object
deep(obj, "foo.bar[name=ba2r22]", {id: 3})
console.log(JSON.stringify(obj))
//Set -> {"foo":{"bar.baz":"qux","foo":["foo1","foo2","ba2r22"],"bar":[{"id":1,"name":"bar--00"},{"id":2,"name":"bar2"},{"id":3,"name":"ba2r22"}]}}
# Add item to list object
deep(obj, "foo.foo[2]", "ba2r22.....")
console.log(JSON.stringify(obj))
//Set -> {"foo":{"bar.baz":"qux","foo":["foo1","foo2","ba2r22....."],"bar":[{"id":1,"name":"bar--00"},{"id":2,"name":"bar2"},{"id":3,"name":"ba2r22"}]}} 
# Update item of a list object
deep(obj, "foo.sir.name", "bar22", true)
console.log(JSON.stringify(obj))
//Set -> {"foo":{"bar.baz":"qux","foo":["foo1","foo2","ba2r22....."],"bar":[{"id":1,"name":"bar--00"},{"id":2,"name":"bar2"},{"id":3,"name":"ba2r22"}],"sir":{"name":"bar22"}}}
# Append if the path not exist

deep(object, path[, value[, append]])

Where path is a dot-notation string foo.bar, for.car[0] or an array of strings.

  • If path step with qualificaiton [filter] and the value is array type, will search the specific item from the array. filter can be key=value or index.
  • If value is passed it will be set on the path.
