@bitty/get

A really small and type-safe (requires TypeScript >= 4.1.3) function, that gets a nested value from an object using a path string (like "a.b[0].d"). If value is undefined or unreachable returns the placeholder instead.

  • 📦 Distributions in ESM, CommonJS, UMD and UMD minified formats.

    • Supports both NodeJS used with ESM (import/export) and CommonJS (require/module.exports).
  • ⚡ Lightweight:

    • Weighs less than 150 bytes (when minified and gzipped).
    • Tree-shakeable.
    • Side-effects free.
  • 🔋 Batteries included:

    • No dependencies.
    • Its not based on newer browser's APIs or es2015+ features.
  • 🏷 Safe:

    • JSDocs and type declarations for IDEs and editor's autocomplete/intellisense.
    • Made with TypeScript as strict as possible.
    • Unit tests with AVA (types was also tested).

It's approach is based on idx, from Facebook, and an insight from a Vue.js meetup where @IgorHalfeld showed a way to get nested values using eval.
