Keypath-resolve

NoDependencies Browser Node

Tiny and flexible library ( 1Kb gziped, 3Kb minified), for safe (any form of code evaluation is used internally) resolution and manipulation of Keypaths. Accepts keypaths formated using dot and bracket notation (or mixed).

  // simple resolution example
  Keypath.resolve( targeObj , 'myProperty.myNestedArray[3]["deepProperty"]' )

Features

  • No dependencies. Tiny and compact.
  • Accepts Keypaths in dot notation and bracket notation (or mixed)
  • Allows Global context resolutions (autodetects window/global)
  • Safe : no eval, or new Function() code evaluation
  • Extremely fast : >200,000 keypath resolutions/second (check ./tests/test.js)
  • Wide platform support :
    • Node , Chrome 49+, Firefox 47+, Edge, Opera , Safari 5.1+, Internet Explorer 11+

API Methods

The library API provides methods for common keypath operations (unfold to see syntax and usage specs) :

Keypath.resolve()

Keypath.resolve()


Resolves the value of the provided keypath . If the keypath does not exist in the object triggers an error.

Keypath.resolve( [contextObject ,] keypath )

  • contextObject : (optional) Object to use as target object. If omited, global object is used instead.
  • keyPath: String representing the keyPath to resolve.
    const myObj = {
        myArray : [ 
            {
                myProp : 'foo'
            }
        ]
    }
    Keypath.resolve(myObj, 'myArray[0].myProp');   
    Keypath.resolve(myObj, 'myArray.0["myProp"]');   
    Keypath.resolve(myObj, "myArray['0'].myProp");   
    // all return 'foo'
Keypath.create()

Keypath.create()


Creates the provided keypath structure, as a sequence of objects or arrays, according to the keypath string.

Keypath.create( [contextObject ,] keypath )

  • contextObject : (optional) Object to use as target object. If omited, global object is used instead.
  • keyPath: String representing the keyPath to create.
    const myObj = {}
    Keypath.create(myObj, 'myNested["myProp"]');   
    // creates the following object structure :
    // myObj.myNested.myProp , and sets the last property
    // value to undefined. Returns undefined
Keypath.assign()

Keypath.assign()


Resolves the provided keypath and assigns to it the provided value. If the keypath does not exist in the object triggers an error.

Keypath.assign( [contextObject ,] keypath, value )

  • contextObject : (optional) Object to use as target object. If omited, global object is used instead.
  • keyPath: String representing the keyPath to create.
  • value : Value to set to the keypath resolution item
    const myObj = {
     myProp : undefined
    }
    Keypath.assign(myObj, 'myProp', 'foo');   
    // Assigns 'foo' to myProp and returns foo'
Keypath.exist()

Keypath.exist()


Tries to resolve the provided keypath, if succeeds returns true, if fails returns false.

Keypath.exist( [contextObject ,] keypath )

  • contextObject : (optional) Object to use as target object. If omited, global object is used instead.
  • keyPath: String representing the keyPath to create.
    const myObj = {
     myProp : [111,222,333,444]
    }
    Keypath.exist(myObj, 'myProp[2]' );   
    // Returns true
Keypath.toArray()

Keypath.toArray()


Returns an array with the keys of the provided keypath. Returns false if the keypath is not properly formated

Keypath.toArray( keypath )

  • keyPath: String representing the keyPath to create.
    Keypath.exist('myProp[2].myNested["deepProp"]' );   
    // Returns ['myProp', '2','myNested','deepProp'] 
Keypath.resolveContext()

Keypath.resolveContext()


Resolves the provided keypath and returns an object containing the context of the resolution and the name of the property to retrieve the value. If the keypath cannot be resolved, triggers an error.

Keypath.resolveContext( [contextObject ,] keypath )

  • contextObject : (optional) Object to use as target object. If omited, global object is used instead.
  • keyPath: String representing the keyPath to create.
    const myObj = {
     myNested:  {
            first: 'foo',
            second : 'bar'
        }
    }
    Keypath.resolveContext(myObj, 'myProp.myNested.first]' );   
    // Returns Object :
    // { context: {first: 'foo', second: 'bar'} , property:'first' }
Keypath.defaultContext()

Keypath.defaultContext()


Set the context to be used by default, when no context is provided to the API collection methods calls (by default: global/windowd).

Keypath.defaultContext( context )

  • context: Reference to the object to be used as default context.
    myObj= {
        myProo:'foo'
    }
    Keypath.defaultContext( myObj );   
    Keypath.resolve('myProp');
    // Returns 'foo'
    Keypath.exist('myProp');
    // Returns true
    // (...)

Global Context Resolutions

By default when the context object is omited ( in any of the API methods calls ), the resolution will be performed searching in the global object (window/global).

    global.myObj = {
        myArray : [ 
            {
                myProp : 'foo'
            }
        ]
    }
    Keypath.resolve('myObj.myArray[0].myProp');   
    // returns 'foo'

However if the default resolution context is reassigned, using Keypath.defaultContext( anyObj ) this behavior does not apply anymore until the default Context is set again to the global object (global/window) using Keypath.defaultContext( global )

Package distribution :

In browser enviroment you can include this library using the CDN ...

<script src='https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/colxi/keypath-resolve@latest/src/keypath-resolve.min.js'></script>

Package can also be installed via:

$ npm install keypath-resolve --save

and available in Github :

 https://github.com/colxi/keypath-resolve

In browsers enviroment the global window.Keypath Object is created automatically. In Node you must perform a regulr module import using require to retrieve the Keypath exported Object.
