Fix Python – are there dictionaries in javascript like python?


Asked By – Alex Gordon

i need to make a dictionary in javascript like this

i dont remember the exact notation, but it was something like:

states_dictionary={ CT=[alex,harry], AK=[liza,alex], TX=[fred, harry] ........ }

is there such a thing in javascript?

Now we will see solution for issue: are there dictionaries in javascript like python?


This is an old post, but I thought I should provide an illustrated answer anyway.

Use javascript’s object notation. Like so:

     "TX":["fred", "harry"]

And to access the values:

states_dictionary.AK[0] //which is liza

or you can use javascript literal object notation, whereby the keys not require to be in quotes:

     TX:["fred", "harry"]
