Object Entries

Return an array of an object's own enumerable property key-value pairs.

Usage

var objectEntries = require( '@stdlib/utils/entries' );

objectEntries( obj )

Returns an array of an object's own enumerable property [key, value] pairs.

var obj = {
    'a': 1,
    'b': 2
};

var entries = objectEntries( obj );
// e.g., returns [ ['a', 1], ['b', 2] ]

Notes

  • Entry order is not guaranteed, as object key enumeration is not specified according to the ECMAScript specification. In practice, however, most engines use insertion order to sort an object's keys, thus allowing for deterministic return values.

Examples

var objectEntries = require( '@stdlib/utils/entries' );

var obj = {
    'beep': 'boop',
    'a': {
        'b': 'c'
    },
    'foo': [ 'bar' ]
};

var entries = objectEntries( obj );
// e.g., returns [ ['beep', 'boop'], ['a', {'b':'c'}], ['foo', [ 'bar' ]] ]
