Package description

What is stringify-object?

The stringify-object npm package is used to stringify an object into a string format that is more readable than JSON.stringify, especially for multi-line strings and functions. It provides options to customize the output, such as indentation, single quotes, and filtering of object properties.

What are stringify-object's main functionalities?

Stringify an object with custom indentation

This feature allows you to convert an object to a string with a specified indentation for better readability. The code sample demonstrates how to use a two-space indentation.

const stringifyObject = require('stringify-object');
const obj = {foo: 'bar', 'arr': [1, 2, 3]};
console.log(stringifyObject(obj, {
    indent: '  '
}));

Stringify an object using single quotes

This feature allows you to stringify an object using single quotes instead of double quotes for string values. The code sample shows how to enable this option.

const stringifyObject = require('stringify-object');
const obj = {foo: 'bar'};
console.log(stringifyObject(obj, {
    singleQuotes: true
}));

Filter properties during stringification

This feature allows you to filter out properties from the resulting string based on a custom function. The code sample demonstrates excluding the 'baz' property from the stringified output.

const stringifyObject = require('stringify-object');
const obj = {foo: 'bar', baz: 'qux'};
console.log(stringifyObject(obj, {
    filter: (obj, prop, value) => prop !== 'baz'
}));

Readme

Source

stringify-object

Stringify an object/array like JSON.stringify just without all the double-quotes

Useful for when you want to get the string representation of an object in a formatted way.

It also handles circular references and lets you specify quote type.

Install

npm install stringify-object

Usage

import stringifyObject from 'stringify-object';

const object = {
	foo: 'bar',
	'arr': [1, 2, 3],
	nested: {
		hello: "world"
	}
};

const pretty = stringifyObject(object, {
	indent: '  ',
	singleQuotes: false
});

console.log(pretty);
/*
{
	foo: "bar",
	arr: [
		1,
		2,
		3
	],
	nested: {
		hello: "world"
	}
}
*/

API

stringifyObject(input, options?)

Circular references will be replaced with "[Circular]".

Object keys are only quoted when necessary, for example, {'foo-bar': true}.

input

Type: object | Array

options

Type: object

indent

Type: string
Default: \t

Preferred indentation.

singleQuotes

Type: boolean
Default: true

Set to false to get double-quoted strings.

filter(object, property)

Type: Function

Expected to return a boolean of whether to include the property property of the object object in the output.

transform(object, property, originalResult)

Type: Function
Default: undefined

Expected to return a string that transforms the string that resulted from stringifying object[property]. This can be used to detect special types of objects that need to be stringified in a particular way. The transform function might return an alternate string in this case, otherwise returning the originalResult.

Here's an example that uses the transform option to mask fields named "password":

import stringifyObject from 'stringify-object';

const object = {
	user: 'becky',
	password: 'secret'
};

const pretty = stringifyObject(object, {
	transform: (object, property, originalResult) => {
		if (property === 'password') {
			return originalResult.replace(/\w/g, '*');
		}

		return originalResult;
	}
});

console.log(pretty);
/*
{
	user: 'becky',
	password: '******'
}
*/
inlineCharacterLimit

Type: number

When set, will inline values up to inlineCharacterLimit length for the sake of more terse output.

For example, given the example at the top of the README:

import stringifyObject from 'stringify-object';

const object = {
	foo: 'bar',
	'arr': [1, 2, 3],
	nested: {
		hello: "world"
	}
};

const pretty = stringifyObject(object, {
	indent: '  ',
	singleQuotes: false,
	inlineCharacterLimit: 12
});

console.log(pretty);
/*
{
	foo: "bar",
	arr: [1, 2, 3],
	nested: {
		hello: "world"
	}
}
*/

As you can see, arr was printed as a one-liner because its string was shorter than 12 characters.
