    safe-clone-deep module for JavaScript

    NPM version Build Status

    This module exposes a single function that accepts an object and clones it without circular references.

    Installation

    npm install safe-clone-deep
    

    For Browser and AMD support see the dist/ directory.

    Usage

    // browser
    // var clone = Object.safeCloneDeep
     
    // node.js
    var clone = require('safe-clone-deep');
     
    var a = {};
    a.a = a;
    a.b = {};
    a.b.a = a;
    a.b.b = a.b;
    a.c = {};
    a.c.b = a.b;
    a.c.c = a.c;
    a.x = 1;
    a.b.x = 2;
    a.c.x = 3;
    a.d = [0,a,1,a.b,2,a.c,3];
     
    console.log(util.inspect(clone(a), {showHidden:false,depth:4}))
    clone(a)

    result...

    { a: undefined,
      b: { a: undefined, b: undefined, x: 2 },
      c: { b: { a: undefined, b: undefined, x: 2 }, c: undefined, x: 3 },
      x: 1,
      d:
       [ 0,
         undefined,
         1,
         { a: undefined, b: undefined, x: 2 },
         2,
         { b: { a: undefined, b: undefined, x: 2 }, c: undefined, x: 3 },
         3 ] }
    

    Override circularValue

    With the undefined as the default circularValue, JSON.stringify will not keep the keys, which is likely the desired result.

    JSON.stringify(clone(a));
    

    result

    {"b":{"x":2},"c":{"b":{"x":2},"x":3},"x":1,"d":[0,null,1,{"x":2},2,{"b":{"x":2},"x":3},3]}
    

    NOTE: when the circular value is in an array, null is used instead of undefined.

    --

    You can override the default behavior.

    clone(a,'[Circular]');

    result...

    { a: '[Circular]',
      b: { a: '[Circular]', b: '[Circular]', x: 2 },
      c:
       { b: { a: '[Circular]', b: '[Circular]', x: 2 },
         c: '[Circular]',
         x: 3 },
      x: 1,
      d:
       [ 0,
         '[Circular]',
         1,
         { a: '[Circular]', b: '[Circular]', x: 2 },
         2,
         { b: { a: '[Circular]', b: '[Circular]', x: 2 },
           c: '[Circular]',
           x: 3 },
         3 ] }
