object.pick NPM version NPM monthly downloads NPM total downloads Linux Build Status

Returns a filtered copy of an object with only the specified keys, similar to _.pick from lodash / underscore.

You might also be interested in object.omit.


Install with npm:

$ npm install --save object.pick


This is the fastest implementation I tested. Pull requests welcome!


var pick = require('object.pick');
pick({a: 'a', b: 'b'}, 'a')
//=> {a: 'a'} 
pick({a: 'a', b: 'b', c: 'c'}, ['a', 'b'])
//=> {a: 'a', b: 'b'}
