JavaScript: Convert an object into a list of pairs

JavaScript Object: Exercise-15 with Solution

Write a JavaScript function to convert an object into a list of '[key, value]' pairs.

Sample Solution: -

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JavaScript function to convert an object into a list of pairs.</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

function key_value_pairs(obj) 
   {
    var keys = _keys(obj);
    var length = keys.length;
    var pairs = Array(length);
    for (var i = 0; i < length; i++) 
    {
      pairs[i] = [keys[i], obj[keys[i]]];
    }
    return pairs;
  }

function _keys(obj) 
  {
    if (!isObject(obj)) return [];
    if (Object.keys) return Object.keys(obj);
    var keys = [];
    for (var key in obj) if (_.has(obj, key)) keys.push(key);
    return keys;
  }
function isObject(obj) 
 {
    var type = typeof obj;
    return type === 'function' || type === 'object' && !!obj;
  }
console.log(key_value_pairs({red: "#FF0000", green: "#00FF00", white: "#FFFFFF"}));

Sample Output:

[["red","#FF0000"],["green","#00FF00"],["white","#FFFFFF"]]
