Parse string values in package.json into objects.

You might also be interested in normalize-pkg.

Install

Install with npm:
$ npm install --save expand-pkg

Usage

var Config = require('./');
var config = new Config();
console.log(config.expand(require('./package')));

Schema

Values are parsed using a schema that is passed to map-schema (builds on the schema from normalize-pkg as a starting point):
  • only properties that have a corresponding field on the schema will be parsed.
  • any properties that do not have a corresponding field are returned unmodified.

See the .field docs to learn how to add or overwrite a field on the schema.

Defaults

A default value may optionally be defined when a .field is registered. When .expand is run and a property that is required or recommended by npm is missing, expand-pkg attempts to create the field if valid data can be found in the repository.
The following fields are the only built-in fields with default values:
  • version: '0.1.0'
  • license: 'MIT'
  • engines: {node: '>= 0.10.0'}

API

Config

Create an instance of Config with the given options.
Example
var config = new Config();
var pkg = config.expand({
  author: 'Jon Schlinkert (https://github.com/jonschlinkert)'
});
console.log(pkg);
//=> {name: 'Jon Schlinkert', url: 'https://github.com/jonschlinkert'}

Params
  • options {Object}

.field

Add a field to the schema, or overwrite or extend an existing field. The last argument is an options object that supports the following properties:
  • normalize {Function}: function to be called on the given package.json value when the .expand method is called
  • default {any}: default value to be used when the package.json property is undefined.
  • required {Boolean}: define true if the property is required

Example
var config = new Config();

config.field('foo', 'string', {
  default: 'bar'
});

var pkg = config.expand({});
console.log(pkg);
//=> {foo:  'bar'}

Params
  • name {String}: Field name (required)
  • type {String|Array}: One or more native javascript types allowed for the property value (required)
  • options {Object}
  • returns {Object}: Returns the instance

.expand

Iterate over pkg properties and expand values that have corresponding fields registered on the schema.
Example
var config = new Config();
var pkg = config.expand(require('./package.json'));

Params
  • pkg {Object}: The package.json object to expand
  • options {Object}
  • returns {Object}: Returns an expanded package.json object.

Options

options.knownOnly

Type: boolean
Default: undefined
Omit properties from package.json that do not have a field registered on the schema.
var Config = require('expand-pkg');
var config = new Config({knownOnly: true});

console.log(config.expand({author: 'Brian Woodward', foo: 'bar'}));
//=> {author: {name: 'Brian Woodward'}}

options.pick

Type: array
Default: undefined
Filter the resulting object to contain only the specified keys.

options.omit

Type: array
Default: undefined
Remove the specified keys from the resulting object.

options.fields

Pass a fields object on the options to customize any fields on the schema (also see options.extend):
var pkg = config.expand(require('./package'), {
  extend: true,
  fields: {
    name: {
      normalize: function() {
        return 'bar'
      }
    }
  }
});

console.log(pkg.name);
//=> 'bar'

options.extend

Type: boolean
Default: undefined
Used with options.field, pass true if you want to extend a field that is already defined on the schema.
var pkg = config.expand(require('./package'), {
  extend: true,
  fields: {
    name: {
      normalize: function() {
        return 'bar'
      }
    }
  }
});

console.log(pkg.name);
//=> 'bar'
