is-extendable NPM version NPM monthly downloads NPM total downloads Linux Build Status

Returns true if a value is a plain object, array or function.


Install with npm:

$ npm install --save is-extendable


var isExtendable = require('is-extendable');

Returns true if the value is any of the following:

  • array
  • plain object
  • function


All objects in JavaScript can have keys, but it's a pain to check for this, since we ether need to verify that the value is not null or undefined and:

  • the value is not a primitive, or
  • that the object is a plain object, function or array

Also note that an extendable object is not the same as an extensible object, which is one that (in es6) is not sealed, frozen, or marked as non-extensible using preventExtensions.
