Introduction

Convert and array or object to an associative array. Something like PHP array.

Installation

``npm install object-to-associative-array``

Requirements

NODE v0.8.0 or higher

I/O

Input

  • Input should be an object / array of objects.
  • Object values can be primitive data, object or array.

Output

  • Returns an associative array.
  • Each item of the array is an object with only one key:value pair.
  • Deep conversion is done by default.
  • Pass false for shallow conversion.

Configure Options

```javascript let configureOptions = {
deep: true, // whether or not to do deep conversion
discard: [] // discard this values in the result array
}; let arr = toAssociativeArray({}, configureOptions); ```

Examples

Simple Conversion
```javascript const toAssociativeArray = require('object-to-associative-array'); let obj = { a: 1, b: 2, c: {
d: 4,
e: 5
} }; let arr = toAssociativeArray(obj); // {"a":1},{"b":2},{"c":{"d":4},{"e":5}} ```
Conversion With Discard
```javascript const toAssociativeArray = require('object-to-associative-array'); let opts = { discard: null, undefined } let obj = { a: 1, b: null, c: {
d: 4,
e: undefined
} }; let arr = toAssociativeArray(obj, opts); {"a":1},{"c":{"d":4}} ```
Deep Convertion
>Default convertion is default. ```javascript const toAssociativeArray = require('object-to-associative-array'); let obj = { a: 1, c: {
e: ['e1', 'e2'],
g: {
i: 9,
j: [
{
k: 11,
l: 12
}
]
}
} }; let arr = toAssociativeArray(obj); // {"a":1},{"c":{"e":{"0":"e1"},{"1":"e2"}},{"g":{"i":9},{"j":{"0":{"k":11},{"l":12}}}}} ```
Shallow Conversion
```javascript const toAssociativeArray = require('./index'); let opts = {deep: false}; let obj = { a: 1, c: {
e: ['e1', 'e2'],
g: {
i: 9,
j: [
{
k: 11,
l: 12
}
]
}
} }; let arr = toAssociativeArray(obj, opts); // {"a":1},{"c":{"e":"e1","e2","g":{"i":9,"j":{"k":11,"l":12}}}} ```
