    json-pick-keys npm version Build Status

    Select keys from JSON Object for inclusion or exclusion.

    Installation

    $ npm install --save json-pick-keys

    Usage

    json-pick-keys helps you pick keys for inclusion and exclusion using space separated values. You can also rename the keys.

    Examples:

    var pickKeys = require('json-pick-keys');
    
    var obj = {
            a: 'Hello',
            b: 'World!',
            c: {
                name: "welcome",
                text : "Welcome To",
                font : { family : 'Open Sans', style: 'bold'}
            },
            d: ['is', 'json', 'pick', 'keys']
        };

    You can then use the API like this:

    pickKeys(obj, 'a b'); //  { a: 'Hello', b: 'World!'}
    pickKeys(obj, 'c.name'); //   { c: { name: 'welcome' } }
    pickKeys(obj, '-c'); //    { a: 'Hello', b: 'World!', d: [ 'is', 'json', 'pick', 'keys' ] }

    Renaming keys

    Use the pipe | symbol to rename your keys. And of-course this only works for inclusion. It would just silently fall through if used with exclusion.

    pickKeys(obj, 'c.font.style|fontWeight d|array'); //  { c: { font: { fontWeight: 'bold' } }, array: [ 'is', 'json', 'pick', 'keys' ] }

    Using Spead Operator with Renaming keys

    Using the pipe | symbol to rename your key, you can also include other keys. This only works for inclusion and arrays are not supported. It would just silently fall through if used with an exclusion or array.

    pickKeys(obj, '... c.font.style|fontWeight d|array'); //  {a: 'Hello', b: 'World!',  c: { font: { fontWeight: 'bold' } }, array: [ 'is', 'json', 'pick', 'keys' ] }

    Using the Object Syntax

    You can supply an object instead of a space separated values. This might come in handing for dynamic cases.

    // for inclusion, these are equivalent
    pickKeys(obj, 'a b'); //  { a: 'Hello', b: 'World!'}
    pickKeys(obj, {a : 1, b : 1}); //  { a: 'Hello', b: 'World!'}
    
    
    // for exclusion, these are equivalent
    pickKeys(obj, '-c'); //    { a: 'Hello', b: 'World!', d: [ 'is', 'json', 'pick', 'keys' ] }
    pickKeys(obj, {c : 0}); //    { a: 'Hello', b: 'World!', d: [ 'is', 'json', 'pick', 'keys' ] }
    
    
    // for renaming, these are equivalent
    pickKeys(obj, 'c.font.style|fontWeight'); //  { c: { font: { fontWeight: 'bold' } } }
    pickKeys(obj, {'c.font.style|fontWeight' : 1}); //  { c: { font: { fontWeight: 'bold' } } }

    Having Data as array

    json-pick-keys works the same for arrays, so chill, no need to worry.

    var arr = [{
            a: 'Hello',
            b: 'World!',
            c: {
                name: "welcome",
                text : "Welcome To",
                font : { family : 'Open Sans', style: 'bold'}
            },
            d: ['is', 'json', 'pick', 'keys']
        }];
    
    pickKeys(arr, 'a b'); //  [{ a: 'Hello', b: 'World!'}]

    Note

    Don't use inclusion and exclusion together, but really, why would you wanna do that?

    However if you must do it, make sure that any nested key you want to exclude you include it first. Check this example:

    pickKeys(obj, 'a b c -c.font'); //  { a: 'Hello', b: 'World!', c: { name: 'welcome', text: 'Welcome To' } }

    If you don't include the c first then, automatically c would be excluded
