Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save has-value

Heads up!

Breaking changes in v2.0! See the release history for details.

Usage

const has = require('has-value');

console.log(has()) //=> true
console.log(has('foo')) //=> true

Works for:

  • booleans
  • functions
  • numbers
  • strings
  • nulls
  • object
  • arrays

isEmpty

To do the opposite and test for empty values, do:

const isEmpty = (...args) => !has(...args);

Supported types

Arrays

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: ['a'] } }, 'foo.bar'));    //=> true
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: [0] } }, 'foo.bar'));      //=> true
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: [[[]]] } }, 'foo.bar'));   //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: [[], []] } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: [] } }, 'foo.bar'));       //=> false

Booleans

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: true } }, 'foo.bar'));  //=> true
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: false } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true

Buffers

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new Buffer() } }, 'foo.bar'));      //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new Buffer('foo') } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true

Dates

Dates are always true.

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new Date() } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true

Errors

Returns false if err.message is an empty string.

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new Error() } }, 'foo.bar'));      //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new Error('foo') } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true

Functions

Functions are always true.

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: function(foo) {} } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: function() {} } }, 'foo.bar'));    //=> true

Maps

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new Map() } }, 'foo.bar'));                 //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new Map([['foo', 'bar']]) } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true

Null

null is always true, as it's assumed that this is a user-defined value, versus undefined which is not.

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: null } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true

Objects

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: {} } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: { a: 'a' }} } }, 'foo.bar'));        //=> true
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: { foo: undefined } } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: { foo: null } } }, 'foo.bar'));      //=> true

Numbers

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: 1 } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: 0 } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true

Regular expressions

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new RegExp() } }, 'foo.bar'));      //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new RegExp('foo') } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true

Sets

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new Set() } }, 'foo.bar'));               //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: new Set(['foo', 'bar']) } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true

Strings

console.log(has({ foo: { bar: 'a' } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> true
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: '' } }, 'foo.bar'));  //=> false

Undefined

console.log(has({ foo: { bar:  } }, 'foo.bar'));          //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: void 0 } }, 'foo.bar'));    //=> false
console.log(has({ foo: { bar: undefined } }, 'foo.bar')); //=> false

Release history

v2.0.0

Breaking changes

  • Now returns false if the first argument is not an object, function or array, and the second argument is not a string or array.

v1.0.0

  • zero always returns true
  • array now recurses, so that an array of empty arrays will return false
  • null now returns true
