Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save stringify-keys

See the Release History for changes.

Usage

const stringify = require('stringify-keys');
 
let obj = { a: 'a', b: { c: { d: { e: 'f' } } } };
console.log(stringify(obj));
//=> [ 'a', 'b.c.d.e' ]

Include values in the result:

console.log(stringify(obj, { values: true }));
//=> { a: 'a', 'b.c.d.e': 'f' }

Keys with dots are automatically escaped with backslashes (this can be customized):

let obj = { 'a.b.c': { d: 'e' } };
console.log(stringify(obj));
//=> [ 'a\\.b\\.c.d' ]
 
console.log(stringify(obj, { values: true }));
//=> { 'a\\.b\\.c.d': 'e' }

Objects with arrays return the array indices as part of the paths:

let obj = { a: 'a', b: [{ c: { d: 'e' } }, { f: { g: 'h' } }] };
 
console.log(stringify(obj));
//=> [ 'a', 'b.0.c.d', 'b.1.f.g' ]
 
console.log(stringify(obj, { values: true }));
//=> { a: 'a', 'b.0.c.d': 'e', 'b.1.f.g': 'h' }

Options

options.separator

Type: string

Default: .

Custom separator to use for creating object paths (a.b.c):

Example

let obj = { 'a.b.c': { d: 'e' } };
console.log(stringify(obj, { separator: '/' }));
//=>  [ 'a.b.c/d' ]
 
console.log(stringify(obj, { separator: '/', values: true }));
//=>  { 'a.b.c/d': 'e' }

options.escape

Type: function

Default: adds \\ before dots

Custom function to use for escaping keys.

Example

let obj = { 'a.b.c': { d: 'e' } };
let escape = str => str.split('.').join('/');
 
console.log(stringify(obj, { escape }));
//=>  [ 'a/b/c.d' ]
 
console.log(stringify(obj, { escape, values: true }));
//=>  { 'a/b/c.d': 'e' }

Release History

v3.0

  • Redundant (parent) keys are no longer included in the output. Thus { a: { b: 'c' } } now returns ['a.b'] instead of ['a', 'a.b'].

v2.0

  • Added support for traversing into arrays.
