    template-to-collection

    Build Status

    Object, Map and WeakMap creation sugar using tagged template strings.

    Installation

    npm install template-to-collection

    Note: The source is written in ES2015. It should fit right into your transpilation pipeline.

    Usage

    Create an Object with null prototype using the Obj tag

    import C from 'template-to-collection'
     
    let obj = C.Obj`${10} b ${'what'} fn ${v => v + 10}`
     
    // will create {a: 10, b: 10, fn: [Function]} whose __proto__ will be `null`

    Create a Map using the Map tag

    import C from 'template-to-collection'
     
    let map = C.Map`${10} b ${'what'} fn ${v => v + 10}`
     
    // will create Map { 'a' => 10, 'fn' => [Function], 'b' => 'what' }

    Create a WeakMap using the WMap tag

    import C from 'template-to-collection'
     
    let key = {a: 200}
    let wmap = C.WMap`${key} ${10}`
     
    // will create a WeakMap where wmap.has(key) === true

    Note: If you intermix strings as keys and ${} expressions for keys, then things are gonna blow up.

    For example, this is bad:

    Obj${'key1'} ${10} key2 ${20}

    Install

    npm i template-to-collection
