merge-defaults

merge-defaults

Implements a deep version of _.defaults.

Important!

This module DOES NOT merge arrays or dates.

Installation

$ npm install merge-defaults

Usage

 
var _ = require('lodash');
 
// Override basic `_.defaults` 
_.defaults = require('merge-defaults');
 
// Or you can add it as a new method 
_.mergeDefaults = require('merge-defaults');
 

Why?

This module is a temporary solution, until lodash has something similar in core that can be called as a single method. In the mean time, this is a hack to make our code more readable. i.e. I know what _.defaults means intuitively, but I have to look up _.partialRight every time.

To get the latest status, see the original issue in the lodash repo.

I'll update this repo with install/version info if something comparable is added to lodash core at some point.
