JavaScript | Convert an array to JSON

Here is a need to convert an array into a JSON_Object. To do so we are going to use a few of the most preferred techniques. First, we need to know a few methods.

1) Object.assign() method
This method copies the values of all properties owned by enumerables from source objects(one or more) to a target object.
Syntax:

Object.assign(target, ...sources)

Parameters:

  • target: It specifies the target object.
  • sources: It specifies the source object(s).

2)-JSON.stringify() method
Use of JSON is to exchange data to/from a web server. While sending data to web server, the data need to be string.
This method converts the javascript Object(array in this case) into JSON_string.
Syntax:

JSON.stringify(Javascript Object)

Parameters:

  • Javascript Object: It specifies the JavaScript object.

Example 1:This example converts the JS array to JSON String using JSON.stringify() method.
