Some utilities for JSON pointers described by RFC 6901

Provides some additional stuff i needed but is not included in node-jsonpointer

node.js

$ npm install json-pointer

component

$ component install manuelstofer/json-pointer
var pointer = require('json-pointer');

Looks up a JSON pointer in an object.

var obj = {
    example: {
        bla: 'hello'
    }
};
pointer.get(obj, '/example/bla');

Sets a new value on object at the location described by pointer.

var obj = {};
pointer.set(obj, '/example/bla', 'hello');

Removes an attribute of object referenced by pointer

var obj = {
    example: 'hello'
};
pointer.remove(obj, '/example');
// obj -> {}

Creates a dictionary object (pointer -> value).

var obj = {
    hello: {bla: 'example'}
};
pointer.dict(obj);
 
// Returns:
// {
//    '/hello/bla': 'example'
// }

Just like:

each(pointer.dict(obj), iterator);

Tests if an object has a value for a JSON pointer.

var obj = {
    bla: 'hello'
};
 
pointer.has(obj, '/bla');               // -> true
pointer.has(obj, '/non/existing');      // -> false

Escapes a reference token.

pointer.escape('hello~bla');            // -> 'hello~0bla'
pointer.escape('hello/bla');            // -> 'hello~1bla'

Unescape a reference token.

pointer.unescape('hello~0bla');         // -> 'hello~bla'
pointer.unescape('hello~1bla');         // -> 'hello/bla'

Converts a JSON pointer into an array of reference tokens.

pointer.parse('/hello/bla');            // -> ['hello', 'bla']

Builds a json pointer from an array of reference tokens.

pointer.compile(['hello', 'bla']);      // -> '/hello/bla'

Convenience wrapper around the api.

pointer(object)                 // bind object
pointer(object, pointer)        // get
pointer(object, pointer, value) // set

The wrapper supports chainable object oriented style.

var obj = {anything: 'bla'};
var objPointer = pointer(obj);
objPointer.set('/example', 'bla').dict();
