How to convert an array of objects to a single object in JavaScript

In this Article we will go through how to convert an array of objects to a single object only using single line of code in JavaScript. This is a one-line JavaScript code snippet that uses one of the most popular ES6 features => Arrow Function.

Let's define this short function:

const toObject = (arr, key) => arr.reduce((a, b) => ({ ...a, [b[key]]: b }), {});

#Example

toObject(
    [
        { id: '1', name: 'Alpha', gender: 'Male' },
        { id: '2', name: 'Bravo', gender: 'Male' },
        { id: '3', name: 'Charlie', gender: 'Female' },
    ],
    'id'
);
/* 
{
    '1': { id: '1', name: 'Alpha', gender: 'Male' },
    '2': { id: '2', name: 'Bravo', gender: 'Male' },
    '3': { id: '3', name: 'Charlie', gender: 'Female' },
}
*/
