omit

Return a partial object copy excluding specified keys.

Usage

var omit = require( '@stdlib/utils/omit' );

omit( obj, keys )

Returns a partial copy of an object, which excludes specified keys.

var obj1 = {
    'a': 1,
    'b': 2,
    'c': 3
};

var obj2 = omit( obj1, 'b' );
// returns { 'a': 1, 'c': 3 }

var obj3 = omit( obj1, [ 'b', 'c' ] );
// returns { 'a': 1 }

The function ignores non-existent and inherited keys.

var obj1 = {
    'a': 1,
    'b': 2,
    'c': 3
};

var obj2 = omit( obj1, 'd' );
// returns { 'a': 1, 'b': 2, 'c': 3 }

Notes

  • The function returns a shallow copy.
  • The function only copies own properties. Hence, the function never copies inherited properties.

Examples

var omit = require( '@stdlib/utils/omit' );

var obj1 = {
    'a': 1,
    'b': 2,
    'c': 3,
    'd': 4,
    'e': 5
};

var obj2 = omit( obj1, [ 'b', 'c', 'e' ] );
// returns { 'a': 1, 'd': 4 }
