FClone

Clone objects by dropping circular references

Build Status

This module clones a Javascript object in safe mode (eg: drops circular values) recursively. Circular values are replaced with a string: '[Circular]'.

Ideas from tracker1/safe-clone-deep. I improved the workflow a bit by:

  • refactoring the code (complete rewrite)
  • fixing node 6+
  • micro optimizations
  • use of Array.isArray and Buffer.isBuffer

Node 0.10 compatible, distributed files are translated to es2015.

Installation

npm install fclone
# or 
bower install fclone

Usage

const fclone = require('fclone');
 
let a = {c: 'hello'};
a.b = a;
 
let o = fclone(a);
 
console.log(o);
// outputs: { c: 'hello', b: '[Circular]' }
 
//JSON.stringify is now safe
console.log(JSON.stringify(o));
