transmog is a utility for converting JavaScript objects of a certain shape to JavaScript objects of a different shape. This transformation is based on standardized rules to make it easy to express and comprehend the transformation.

Features:

  • reading/writing from/to nested properties
  • whitelisting of properties
  • conversion of property values
  • default values for missing property values

API

transmog()

transmog(
  rules: object,
  object: object
): object

Transforms object according to rules.

transmog will apply the rules to object without mutating it and will always return a newly created object. Note however that the property values of the resulting object may reference the same objects as the source object does. There's no cloning of objects involved unless you specify individual rules which do so.

rules

The rules object consists of key-value pairs which specify how every property of the resulting object is determined.

rules = {
    "path.to.property": <boolean | function | string | object>,
    ...
}

The key of a rule specifies the property name or property path in the resulting object. A property path is a . delimited string of valid property names and can be used to create nested objects.

The value of a rule is a description for how to calculate the property value based on the source object. Different common use cases can be expressed based on the type of the rule.

boolean rule

true | false

If true the value of the source object under the same path is written to the resulting object. If false the rule is ignored. (This is just for consistency. Instead of specifying false the rule can be omitted as well.)

function rule
function (
    sourceValue: any,
    sourceObject: object
): any

The specified function is called with

  • the sourceValue which is the property value of the source object under the same path as the rule describes
  • the source object itself.

It should return the value which will be written to the resulting object under the path which the rule describes.

string rule

"source.property.path"

The specified string is interpreted as a property path of the source object whose value will be written to the resulting object.

object rule
{
    converter?: (sourceValue: any, sourceObject: object) => any,
    sourcePath?: string,
    defaultTo?: (sourceObject: object) => any
}

An object rule is the generalization of the boolean, function and string rule.

The converter function will be called with the sourceValue and sourceObject and should return the value which will be written to the resulting object. If omitted the identity function will be used as a default.

The sourcePath specifies the property path under which the sourceValue for the converter function will be read. If omitted the destination path of the rule will be used as a default.

The defaultTo function will be called if the sourceValue is null, undefined or the source object has no property under the specified sourcePath. It will be called with the sourceObject as an argument and should return the default value which will be written to the resulting object. If defaultTo is omitted no value will be written to the resulting object if sourceValue is null, undefined or the source object has no property under the specified sourcePath.
