    NPM

    order-diff is a javascript/node. js module providing utility functions for determining the structural differences between objects and includes some utilities for applying differences across objects. Thanks for flitbit for create deep-diff

    Install

    npm install order-diff

    Features

    • Get the structural differences between two objects.
    • Observe the structural differences between two objects.
    • When structural differences represent change, apply change from one object to another.
    • When structural differences represent change, selectively apply change from one object to another.
    • Object can dependent with the key-value order and array can independent with order.

    Installation

    npm install order-diff

    Importing

    nodejs

    var diff = require('order-diff')
    // or:
    // const diff = require('order-diff');
    // const { diff } = require('order-diff');
    // or:
    // const OrderDiff = require('order-diff');
    // const { OrderDiff } = require('order-diff');
    // es6+:
    // import diff from 'order-diff';
    // import { diff } from 'order-diff';
    // es6+:
    // import OrderDiff from 'order-diff';
    // import { OrderDiff } from 'order-diff';

    browser

    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/order-diff@1/dist/order-diff.min.js"></script>

    In a browser, order-diff defines a global variable OrderDiff. If there is a conflict in the global namespace you can restore the conflicting definition and assign order-diff to another variable like this: var order = OrderDiff.noConflict();.

    Simple Examples

    In order to describe differences, change revolves around an origin object. For consistency, the origin object is always the operand on the left-hand-side of operations. The comparand, which may contain changes, is always on the right-hand-side of operations.

    var diff = require('order-diff').diff;
     
    var lhs = {
      name: 'my object',
      description: 'it\'s an object!',
      details: {
        it: 'has',
        an: 'array',
        with: ['a', 'few', 'elements']
      }
    };
     
    var rhs = {
      description: 'it\'s an object!',
      name: 'updated object',
      details: {
        it: 'has',
        an: 'array',
        with: ['few', 'a', 'more', 'elements', { than: 'before' }]
      }
    };
     
    var differences = diff(lhs, rhs);
    • The code snippet above would result in the following structure describing the differences by default:
    [{
        "kind": "E",
        "path": ["name"],
        "lhs": "my object",
        "rhs": "updated object"
    },
    {
        "kind": "M",
        "path": ["details", "with", 1],
        "lhs": "few",
        "rhs": 0
    },
    {
        "kind": "N",
        "path": ["details", "with", 2],
        "lhs": 2,
        "rhs": "more"
    },
    {
        "kind": "N",
        "path": ["details", "with", 4],
        "lhs": 4,
        "rhs":
        {
            "than": "before"
        }
    }]
    • IF independent of array order.
    var differences = diff(lhs, rhs, null, null, true);
    • Would result in the following structure describing the differences:
    [{
        "kind": "E",
        "path": ["name"],
        "lhs": "my object",
        "rhs": "updated object"
    },
    {
        "kind": "N",
        "path": ["details", "with", 3],
        "lhs": 2,
        "rhs": "more"
    },
    {
        "kind": "N",
        "path": ["details", "with", 4],
        "lhs": 4,
        "rhs":
        {
            "than": "before"
        }
    }]
    • IF dependent of object order.
    var differences = diff(lhs, rhs, null, null, false);
    • Would result in the following structure describing the differences:
    [{
        "kind": "M",
        "path": ["description"],
        "lhs": "it's an object!"
    },
    {
        "kind": "E",
        "path": ["name"],
        "lhs": "my object",
        "rhs": "updated object"
    },
    {
        "kind": "M",
        "path": ["details", "with", 1],
        "lhs": "few",
        "rhs": 0
    },
    {
        "kind": "N",
        "path": ["details", "with", 2],
        "lhs": 2,
        "rhs": "more"
    },
    {
        "kind": "N",
        "path": ["details", "with", 4],
        "lhs": 4,
        "rhs":
        {
            "than": "before"
        }
    }]

    Differences

    Differences are reported as one or more change records. Change records have the following structure:

    • kind - indicates the kind of change; will be one of the following:
      • N - indicates a newly added property/element
      • D - indicates a property/element was deleted
      • E - indicates a property/element was edited
      • M - indicates a property/element was move place when dependent order
      • R - indicates a object change a property/element's name
    • path - the property path (from the left-hand-side root)
    • lhs - the value on the left-hand-side of the comparison (undefined if kind === 'N')
    • rhs - the value on the right-hand-side of the comparison (undefined if kind === 'D')

    Change records are generated for all structural differences between origin and comparand. The methods only consider an object's own properties and array elements; those inherited from an object's prototype chain are not considered.

    differences. If the structural differences are applied from the comparand to the origin then the two objects will compare as "order equal" using order-deep.objectEqual.

    Changes

    When two objects differ, you can observe the differences as they are calculated and selectively apply those changes to the origin object (left-hand-side).

    var observableDiff = require('order-diff').observableDiff;
    var applyChange = require('order-diff').applyChange;
     
    var lhs = {
      name: 'my object',
      description: 'it\'s an object!',
      details: {
        it: 'has',
        an: 'array',
        with: ['a', 'few', 'elements']
      }
    };
     
    var rhs = {
      description: 'it\'s an object!',
      name: 'updated object',
      details: {
        it: 'has',
        an: 'array',
        with: ['few', 'a', 'more', 'elements', { than: 'before' }]
    };
     
    observableDiff(lhs, rhs, function (d) {
      // Apply all changes except to the name property...
      if (d.path[d.path.length - 1] !== 'name') {
        applyChange(lhs, rhs, d);
      }
    });

    API Documentation

    A standard import of var diff = require('order-diff') is assumed in all of the code examples. The import results in an object having the following public properties:

    • diff(lhs, rhs, prefilter, acc, orderIndependent, scale) — calculates the differences between two objects, optionally prefiltering elements for comparison, and optionally using the specified accumulator.
    • observableDiff(lhs, rhs, observer, prefilter, orderIndependent, scale) — calculates the differences between two objects and reports each to an observer function, optionally, prefiltering elements for comparison.
    • applyDiff(target, source, filter, prefilter, orderIndependent, scale) — applies any structural differences from a source object to a target object, optionally filtering each difference.
    • applyDiff(target, source, changes, filter) — applies any structural differences of changes from a source object to a target object, if source is set it will check all the changes if it is real differences of source, optionally filtering each difference.
    • applyChange(target, source, change) — applies a single change record to a target object. NOTE: source is unused and may be removed.
    • objectEqual(lhs, rhs, orderIndependent) — check if the two objects is different with order independent option.

    diff

    The diff function calculates the difference between two objects.

    Arguments

    • lhs - the left-hand operand; the origin object.
    • rhs - the right-hand operand; the object being compared structurally with the origin object.
    • prefilter - an optional function that determines whether difference analysis should continue down the object graph.
    • acc - an optional accumulator/array (requirement is that it have a push function). Each difference is pushed to the specified accumulator.
    • orderIndependent - an optional indicate array and object order dependence. default array with order and object without order. IF true array will without order, false object will with order. IF a function can return true\false\undefined with difference path.
    • scale - an optional float that similarity more than that indicate two objects is similar with each other. the default is 0.5(50%). If it is true two object must equal. IF a function can return a float with difference path.

    Returns either an array of changes, if there are no changes, [].

    Pre-filtering Object Properties

    The prefilter's signature should be function(path, key) and it should return a truthy value for any path-key combination that should be filtered. If filtered, the difference analysis does no further analysis of on the identified object-property path.

    Contributing

    When contributing, keep in mind that it is an objective of order-diff to have no package dependencies. This may change in the future, but for now, no-dependencies.

    Please run the unit tests before submitting your PR: npm test. Hopefully your PR includes additional unit tests to illustrate your change/modification!

    When you run npm test, linting will be performed and any linting errors will fail the tests... this includes code formatting.

    Thanks to all those who have contributed so far!
