mapValues

Map values from one object to a new object having the same keys.

Usage

var mapValues = require( '@stdlib/utils/map-values' );

mapValues( obj, transform )

Map values from one object to a new object having the same keys.

function transform( value, key ) {
    return key + value;
}

var obj1 = {
    'a': 1,
    'b': 2
};

var obj2 = mapValues( obj1, transform );
// returns { 'a': 'a1', 'b': 'b2' }

The transform function is provided three arguments:

  • value: object value corresponding to key
  • key: object key
  • obj: the input object

Notes

  • Key iteration 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.
  • The function only maps values assigned to own properties. Hence, the function does not map values for inherited properties.
  • The function shallow copies key values.

Examples

var mapValues = require( '@stdlib/utils/map-values' );

function transform( value, key ) {
    return key + ':' + value;
}

var obj1 = {
    'a': 'beep',
    'b': 'boop',
    'c': 'foo',
    'd': 'bar'
};

var obj2 = mapValues( obj1, transform );

console.dir( obj2 );
// => { 'a': 'a:beep', 'b': 'b:boop', 'c': 'c:foo', 'bar': 'd:bar' }
