fluid.censorKeys(toCensor, keys)

Accepts an object to be censored, and a list of keys. The keys in the list will be removed from the object.

fluid.censorKeys(toCensor, keys);

File name: Fluid.js


toCensor (Arrayable or Object) The object to be censored - this will be modified by the operation.
keys (Array of strings) The list of keys to remove from the object.

Return Value

Object the censored object (the same object that was supplied as toCensor).


fluid.each(addressArray, function (addr, index) {
    fluid.censorKeys(addr, ["name"]);

This example processes an array of address objects and makes it "anonymous" it by stripping out the name fields. Note that this example is destructive: It directly modifies the original objects in addressArray.

Example: non-destructive

var anonymousAddresses = [];
fluid.each(addressArray, function (addr, index) {
    anonymousAddresses.push(fluid.censorKeys(fluid.copy(addr), ["name"]));

This example produces a new array of objects containing all but the "name" information in addressArray.
