A module to walk through an object with an iterator

Installation

npm install --save object-iterator

Usage

An iterator is a function you can call several times and of which you should expect a different value every time. In this case, the iterator iterates over the given object and returns this kind of object every time

{
    type: 'array|object|number|boolean|string|null|end-array|end-object'
    value: 8 // actual value
    key: 0 // the key (number or string) on which this value was found
}
  • type is the current state of the iterator. It mostly indicates the type of the current value
  • value (optional) present when the current value is a simple value (as opposed to a composed value)
  • key is the key this value was found on
var oi = require('object-iterator');
var source = [8, {one: 1, yes: true}, null];
var next = oi(source);
var v;
while(v = next()) {
    console.log(v.type);
}

// array
// number
// object
// number
// boolean
// end-object
// null
// end-array
