How to rename key of an Object

JavaScriptRename KeyObject

In this article we are going to discuss about how to rename a key. Let us take an example of a simple object first.

let sampleObj = {
    "name": "Angular",
    "version": "8"

for (const k in sampleObj) {
    if (k === "name") {
        sampleObj["newKeyName"] = sampleObj[k];
        delete sampleObj[k];

Here we deleted the key and added new one with out changing its value. End result is equal to rename the key.

Here we checked directly key === "name", you can add your own conditions. (indexOf(k), etc) according to your requirements.


Now check with another example.

let data = [{
    "name": "Angular",
    "version": "8"
}, {
    "name": "React",
    "version": "6"
}, {
    "name": "Backbone",
    "version": "7"

data.forEach((obj) => {
    for (const k in obj) {
        if (k === "name") {
            obj["newKeyname"] = obj[k];
            delete obj[k]

Here we are looping over array of object and renaming the key.
