serialize(source, opts, opts.ignoreCircular, opts.reference)

serializes an object to javascript

Example - serializing regex, date, buffer, ...

var serialize = require('serialize-to-js')
var obj = {
  str: '<script>var a = 0 > 1</script>',
  num: 3.1415,
  bool: true,
  nil: null,
  undef: undefined,
  obj: { foo: 'bar' },
  arr: [1, '2'],
  regexp: /^test?$/,
  date: new Date(),
  buffer: Buffer.from('data'),
}
console.log(serialize(obj))
// > {str: "\u003Cscript\u003Evar a = 0 \u003E 1\u003C\u002Fscript\u003E", num: 3.1415, bool: true, nil: null, undef: undefined, obj: {foo: "bar"}, arr: [1, "2"], regexp: /^test?$/, date: new Date("2016-04-15T16:22:52.009Z"), buffer: new Buffer('ZGF0YQ==', 'base64')}

Example - serializing while respecting references

var serialize = require('serialize-to-js')
var obj = { object: { regexp: /^test?$/ } };
obj.reference = obj.object;
var opts = { reference: true };
console.log(serialize(obj, opts));
//> {object: {regexp: /^test?$/}}
console.log(opts.references);
//> [ [ '.reference', '.object' ] ]

Parameters

opts: Object, options

opts.ignoreCircular: Boolean, ignore circular objects

opts.reference: Boolean, reference instead of a copy (requires post-processing of opts.references)
