Create nested values and any intermediaries using dot notation ('a.b.c') paths.

Please consider following this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, and consider starring the project to show your ❤️ and support.

Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save set-value

Heads up!

Please update to version 3.0.1 or later, a critical bug was fixed in that version.

Usage

const set = require('set-value');
set(object, prop, value);

Params

  • object {object}: The object to set value on
  • prop {string}: The property to set. Dot-notation may be used.
  • value {any}: The value to set on object[prop]

Examples

Updates and returns the given object:

const obj = {};
set(obj, 'a.b.c', 'd');
console.log(obj);
//=> { a: { b: { c: 'd' } } }

Escaping

Escaping with backslashes

Prevent set-value from splitting on a dot by prefixing it with backslashes:

console.log(set({}, 'a\\.b.c', 'd'));
//=> { 'a.b': { c: 'd' } }
 
console.log(set({}, 'a\\.b\\.c', 'd'));
//=> { 'a.b.c': 'd' }

Benchmarks

(benchmarks were run on a MacBook Pro 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3).

set-value is more reliable and has more features than dot-prop, without sacrificing performance.

Running the benchmarks

Clone this library into a local directory:

$ git clone https://github.com/jonschlinkert/set-value.git

Then install devDependencies and run benchmarks:

$ npm install && node benchmark

Comparisons to other libs, or "the list of shame"

These are just a few of the duplicate libraries on NPM.

  • bury fails all of the tests. I even wrapped it to have it return the object instead of the value, but with all of that work it still fails the vast majority of tests.
  • deep-get-set fails 22 of 26 unit tests.
  • deep-object fails 25 of 26 unit tests, completely butchered given objects.
  • deep-property fails 17 of 26 unit tests.
  • deep-set fails 13 of 26 unit tests.
  • deephas fails 17 of 26 unit tests.
  • dot-prop fails 9 of 26 unit tests.
  • dot2val fails 17 of 26 unit tests.
  • es5-dot-prop fails 15 of 26 unit tests.
  • getsetdeep fails all unit tests due to this being used improperly in the methods. I was able to patch it by binding the (plain) object to the methods, but it still fails 17 of 26 unit tests.
  • lodash.set fails 11 of 26 unit tests.
  • object-path-set fails 12 of 26 unit tests.
  • object-path fails 16 of 26 unit tests.
  • object-set fails 13 of 26 unit tests.
  • set-nested-prop fails 24 of 26 unit tests.
  • setvalue (this library is almost identical to a previous version of this library)
  • Many dozens of others

Others that do the same thing, but use a completely different API

History

v3.0.0

  • Added support for a custom split function to be passed on the options.
  • Removed support for splitting on brackets, since a custom function can be passed to do this now.

v2.0.0

  • Adds support for escaping with double or single quotes. See escaping for examples.
  • Will no longer split inside brackets or braces. See bracket support for examples.

If there are any regressions please create a bug report. Thanks!
