JavaScript: Tips of the Day


const box = { p: 10, q: 20 };


const shape = box;
shape.p = 100;


Object.freeze makes it impossible to add, remove, or modify properties of an object (unless the property's value is another object).
When we create the variable shape and set it equal to the frozen object box, shape also refers to a frozen object. You can check whether an object is frozen by using Object.isFrozen. In this case, Object.isFrozen(shape) returns true, since the variable shape has a reference to a frozen object.
Since shape is frozen, and since the value of p is not an object, we cannot modify the property p. p is still equal to 10, and { p: 10, q: 20 } gets logged.
