# is-data-descriptor [![NPM version](https://img.shields.io/npm/v/is-data-descriptor.svg)](https://www.npmjs.com/package/is-data-descriptor) [![Build Status](https://img.shields.io/travis/jonschlinkert/is-data-descriptor.svg)](https://travis-ci.org/jonschlinkert/is-data-descriptor)

> Returns true if a value has the characteristics of a valid JavaScript data descriptor.

## Install

Install with [npm](https://www.npmjs.com/):

```sh
$ npm i is-data-descriptor --save
```

## Usage

```js
var isDataDesc = require('is-data-descriptor');
```

## Examples

`true` when the descriptor has valid properties with valid values.

```js
// `value` can be anything
isDataDesc({value: 'foo'})
isDataDesc({value: function() {}})
isDataDesc({value: true})
//=> true
```

`false` when not an object

```js
isDataDesc('a')
//=> false
isDataDesc(null)
//=> false
isDataDesc([])
//=> false
```

`false` when the object has invalid properties

```js
isDataDesc({value: 'foo', bar: 'baz'})
//=> false
isDataDesc({value: 'foo', bar: 'baz'})
//=> false
isDataDesc({value: 'foo', get: function(){}})
//=> false
isDataDesc({get: function(){}, value: 'foo'})
//=> false
```

`false` when a value is not the correct type

```js
isDataDesc({value: 'foo', enumerable: 'foo'})
//=> false
isDataDesc({value: 'foo', configurable: 'foo'})
//=> false
isDataDesc({value: 'foo', writable: 'foo'})
//=> false
```

## Valid properties

The only valid data descriptor properties are the following:

* `configurable` (required)
* `enumerable` (required)
* `value` (optional)
* `writable` (optional)

To be a valid data descriptor, either `value` or `writable` must be defined.

**Invalid properties**

A descriptor may have additional _invalid_ properties (an error will **not** be thrown).

```js
var foo = {};

Object.defineProperty(foo, 'bar', {
  enumerable: true,
  whatever: 'blah', // invalid, but doesn't cause an error
  get: function() {
    return 'baz';
  }
});

console.log(foo.bar);
//=> 'baz'
```
