How to convert an Object Array to an Array [] of key-value pairs in JavaScript

In this blog post, I will show you some cool ways to convert an object array to a dictionary i.e key-value pair. In other ways group the object by the key and return the data

For example, I have the following list of objects which contains the data of the mobile phone.

 const applePhones = [
    { name: 'iPhone 12', price: 799,company:'Apple' },
    { name: 'iPhone 12 Pro', price: 999,company:'Apple' },
    { name: 'iPhone 12 Pro Max', price: 1099,company:'Apple' },
    { name: 'iPhone 12 mini', price: 699,company:'Apple' },
    { name: 'iPhone 11', price: 599,company:'Apple' },
    { name: 'Samsung Galaxy', price: 699,company:'Sumsung' },
    { name: 'Samsung Galaxy S20', price: 799,company:'Sumsung' },
    { name: 'Samsung Galaxy S20+', price: 899,company:'Sumsung' },
    { name: 'Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra', price: 999,company:'Sumsung' },
 ];

Now I want to group the data by company name as shown below. You can see that data is grouped by company name.

{ 'Apple' : [ { name: 'iPhone 12', price: 799, company: 'Apple' },
  { name: 'iPhone 12 Pro', price: 999, company: 'Apple' },
  { name: 'iPhone 12 Pro Max', price: 1099, company: 'Apple' },
  { name: 'iPhone 12 mini', price: 699, company: 'Apple' },
  { name: 'iPhone 11', price: 599, company: 'Apple' } ],
  'Samsung' : [ { name: 'Samsung Galaxy', price: 699, company: 'Samsung' },
  { name: 'Samsung Galaxy S20', price: 799, company: 'Samsung' },
  { name: 'Samsung Galaxy S20+', price: 899, company: 'Samsung' },
  { name: 'Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra',
    price: 999,
    company: 'Sumsung' } ] }

There are multiple ways to solve the above problem but here I will show you two ways. The first one using the JavaScript reduce method and a second one uses ES6 Map

Using Reduce

    const groupBy = (array, key) => {
        return array.reduce((result, currentValue) => {
            (result[currentValue[key]] = result[currentValue[key]] || []).push(
                currentValue
            );
            return result;
        }, {});
    }

Using Map

const groupPhones = (phones) => {
        const map = new Map();
        phones.forEach((phone) => {
            const company = phone.company;
            if (!map.has(company)) {
                map.set(company, []);
            }
            map.get(company).push(phone);
        });
        return map;
    }
