Here is the object we will use for all of the examples:

const user = {
  id: 1,
  name: 'Leanne Graham',
  username: 'Bret',
  email: 'Sincere@april.biz',
  address: {
    street: 'Kulas Light',
    suite: 'Apt. 556',
    city: 'Gwenborough',
    zipcode: '92998-3874',
    geo: {
      lat: '-37.3159',
      lng: '81.1496',
    },
  },
  phone: '1-770-736-8031 x56442',
  website: 'hildegard.org',
  company: {
    name: 'Romaguera-Crona',
    catchPhrase: 'Multi-layered client-server neural-net',
    bs: 'harness real-time e-markets',
  },
};

1. for in loop

for (let key in user) {
  console.log(key, user[key]);
}

/*
  The result of the code above is:
  id 1
  name Leanne Graham
  username Bret
  email Sincere@april.biz
  address {street: "Kulas Light", suite: "Apt. 556", city: "Gwenborough", zipcode: "92998-3874", geo: {…}}
  phone 1-770-736-8031 x56442
  website hildegard.org
  company {name: "Romaguera-Crona", catchPhrase: "Multi-layered client-server neural-net", bs: "harness real-time e-markets"}
*/

2. Object.keys()

Object.keys() takes an object and returns an array of all of the keys of the object. This allows you to easily loop through the array and get all of the keys out.

console.log(Object.keys(user));
/*
  The result of the code above is:
  0: "id"
  1: "name"
  2: "username"
  3: "email"
  4: "address"
  5: "phone"
  6: "website"
  7: "company"
*/

Object.keys(user).forEach(key => {
  console.log(`${key}: ${user[key]}`);
});

/*
  The result of the code above is:
  id: 1
  name: Leanne Graham
  username: Bret
  email: Sincere@april.biz
  address: [object Object]
  phone: 1-770-736-8031 x56442
  website: hildegard.org
  company: [object Object]
*/

Object.values()

Takes an object and returns an array of all of the values of the object. This allows you to easily loop through the array and get all of the values out.

console.log(Object.values(user));
/*
  The result of the code above is:
  0: 1
  1: "Leanne Graham"
  2: "Bret"
  3: "Sincere@april.biz"
  4: {street: "Kulas Light", suite: "Apt. 556", city: "Gwenborough", zipcode: "92998-3874", geo: {…}}
  5: "1-770-736-8031 x56442"
  6: "hildegard.org"
  7: {name: "Romaguera-Crona", catchPhrase: "Multi-layered client-server neural-net", bs: "harness real-time e-markets"}
*/

Object.values(user).forEach(value => {
  console.log(`${value}`);
});

/*
  The result of the code above is:
  1
  Leanne Graham
  Bret
  Sincere@april.biz
  [object Object]
  1-770-736-8031 x56442
  hildegard.org
  [object Object]
*/

Object.entries()

Takes an object and returns an array of arrays. The inner array has two items in it, the first being the key the 2nd being the value

console.log(Object.entries(user));
/*
  The result of the code above is:
  0: (2) ["id", 1]
  1: (2) ["name", "Leanne Graham"]
  2: (2) ["username", "Bret"]
  3: (2) ["email", "Sincere@april.biz"]
  4: (2) ["address", {…}]
  5: (2) ["phone", "1-770-736-8031 x56442"]
  6: (2) ["website", "hildegard.org"]
  7: (2) ["company", {…}]
*/

Object.entries(user).forEach(([key, value]) => {
  console.log(`${key}: ${value}`);
});

/*
  The result of the code above is:
  id: 1
  name: Leanne Graham
  username: Bret
  email: Sincere@april.biz
  address: [object Object]
  phone: 1-770-736-8031 x56442
  website: hildegard.org
  company: [object Object]
*/

Wrap up

Next time you need to loop through an object in JavaScript give one of these methods a try. 👽
