Usage

var objectUtil = require('js-object-util');

// Some deeply nested JSON example input:
var book = {
	publisher: {
		name: "dpunkt",
		address: {
			city: "Heidelberg",
			plz: 69123
		}
	},
	title : "React",
	year: 2015,
	properties: {
		includes_ebook: false,
		whatever: null,
		dunno: undefined
	},
	readers: [
		{
			type: "user",
			name: "Johnny",
			age: 32,
			nickname: null
		},
		{
			type: "user",
			name: "Brad",
			age: 13,
			nickname: "Bratze"
		}
	]
};

// Let's go. Checking for properties:
var keyExists;
keyExists = objectUtil.hasIn(book, ['publisher', 'address', 'city']);		// true
keyExists = objectUtil.hasIn(book, ['publisher', 'address', 'notthere']);	// false
// Retrieving properties:
var value;
value = ObjectUtil.getIn(book, ['year']);							// 2015
value = objectUtil.getIn(book, ['readers', 1, 'name']);			// Brad
value = objectUtil.getIn(book, ['readers', 5, 'notthere'], null);			// null
// Setting properties:
var new_book;
new_book = ObjectUtil.setIn(book, ['readers', 2, 'name'], 'Dan');
new_book = ObjectUtil.setIn(new_book, ['readers', 2, 'age'], 14);
