What are JavaScript Objects?

JavaScript objects are variables containing a single value or many values.

For example:

let planet = "Earth";

Here, the planet is an object. It can also be written as follows with many value pairs.

let planet = {name: "Earth", radius: "6371 km", age: "4.543 billion years"}

Spread Operator in JavaScript

It is represented by (), i.e., three dots. Spread operator in JavaScript allows you to quickly copy all or part of an existing array/object into another array/object.

You can use spread operator to combine or merge arrays/objects in JavaScript. It merges all the properties of all the objects in new object, but same properties will be replaced or overwritten by the last object.

For example: let there be two objects (planet_1 and planet_2) with some properties. They are then merged in the third object called planet.

Below is the JavaScript Code:

Example 1:

let planet_1 = {
	name: "earth",
}

let planet_2 = {
	radius: "6371 km"
}

let planet = {
	...planet_1,
	...planet_2
}

planet

Output:

Example 2:

let planet_1 = {
	name: "earth",
	radius: "6371 km"
}

let planet_2 = {
	name: "mars",
	radius: "3,389.5 km"
}

let planet = {
	...planet_1,
	...planet_2
}

planet

Output:
