As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested source page into HTML format (assuming markdown format). Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file. A member file download can also be achieved by clicking within a package contents listing on the according byte size field.

offers foolproof deep cloning of objects, arrays, numbers, strings etc. in JavaScript.

Installation

npm install clone

(It also works with browserify, ender or standalone.)

Example

var clone = require('clone');

var a, b;

a = { foo: { bar: 'baz' } };  // initial value of a

b = clone(a);                 // clone a -> b
a.foo.bar = 'foo';            // change a

console.log(a);               // show a
console.log(b);               // show b

This will print:

{ foo: { bar: 'foo' } }
{ foo: { bar: 'baz' } }

clone masters cloning simple objects (even with custom prototype), arrays, Date objects, and RegExp objects. Everything is cloned recursively, so that you can clone dates in arrays in objects, for example.

API

clone(val, circular, depth)

clone.clonePrototype(obj)

Does a prototype clone as described by Oran Looney.

Circular References

var a, b;

a = { hello: 'world' };

a.myself = a;
b = clone(a);

console.log(b);

This will print:

{ hello: "world", myself: [Circular] }

So, b.myself points to b, not a. Neat!

Test

npm test

Caveat

Some special objects like a socket or process.stdout/stderr are known to not be cloneable. If you find other objects that cannot be cloned, please open an issue.
