traverse

Traverse and transform objects by visiting every node on a recursive walk.

examples

transform negative numbers in-place

negative.js

var traverse = require('traverse');
var obj = [ 5, 6, -3, [ 7, 8, -2, 1 ], { f : 10, g : -13 } ];

traverse(obj).forEach(function (x) {
    if (x < 0) this.update(x + 128);
});

console.dir(obj);

Output:

[ 5, 6, 125, [ 7, 8, 126, 1 ], { f: 10, g: 115 } ]

collect leaf nodes

leaves.js

var traverse = require('traverse');

var obj = {
    a : [1,2,3],
    b : 4,
    c : [5,6],
    d : { e : [7,8], f : 9 },
};

var leaves = traverse(obj).reduce(function (acc, x) {
    if (this.isLeaf) acc.push(x);
    return acc;
}, []);

console.dir(leaves);

Output:

[ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 ]

context

Each method that takes a callback has a context (its this object) with these attributes:

this.node

The present node on the recursive walk

this.path

An array of string keys from the root to the present node

this.parent

The context of the node's parent. This is undefined for the root node.

this.key

The name of the key of the present node in its parent. This is undefined for the root node.

this.isRoot, this.notRoot

Whether the present node is the root node

this.isLeaf, this.notLeaf

Whether or not the present node is a leaf node (has no children)

this.level

Depth of the node within the traversal

this.circular

If the node equals one of its parents, the circular attribute is set to the context of that parent and the traversal progresses no deeper.

this.update(value)

Set a new value for the present node.

this.remove()

Remove the current element from the output. If the node is in an Array it will be spliced off. Otherwise it will be deleted from its parent.

this.delete()

Delete the current element from its parent in the output. Calls delete even on Arrays.

this.before(fn)

Call this function before any of the children are traversed.

this.after(fn)

Call this function after any of the children are traversed.

this.pre(fn)

Call this function before each of the children are traversed.

this.post(fn)

Call this function after each of the children are traversed.

methods

.map(fn)

Execute fn for each node in the object and return a new object with the results of the walk. To update nodes in the result use this.update(value).

.forEach(fn)

Execute fn for each node in the object but unlike .map(), when this.update() is called it updates the object in-place.

.reduce(fn, acc)

For each node in the object, perform a left-fold with the return value of fn(acc, node).

If acc isn't specified, acc is set to the root object for the first step and the root element is skipped.

.deepEqual(obj)

Returns a boolean, whether the instance value is equal to the supplied object along a deep traversal using some opinionated choices.

Some notes:

var a = [1];
a.push(a); // a = [ 1, *a ]

var b = [1];
b.push(a); // b = [ 1, [ 1, *a ] ]

a is not the same as b since even though the expansion is the same, the circular references in each refer to different paths into the data structure.

However, in:

var c = [1];
c.push(c); // c = [ 1, *c ];

c is equal to a in a deepEqual() because they have the same terminal node structure.

.paths()

Return an Array of every possible non-cyclic path in the object. Paths are Arrays of string keys.

.nodes()

Return an Array of every node in the object.

.clone()

Create a deep clone of the object.

installation

Using npm: npm install traverse

Or check out the repository and link your development copy: git clone http://github.com/substack/js-traverse.git cd js-traverse npm link .

You can test traverse with "expresso":http://github.com/visionmedia/expresso (npm install expresso): js-traverse $ expresso

100% wahoo, your stuff is not broken!

hash transforms

This library formerly had a hash transformation component. It has been moved to the hashish package.
