JavaScript Map entries to Array

To create a Map from Object, we can convert an object into an array of [key, value] pairs and then create a Map using it.

let obj = {
	"name": "hackinbits",
	"type": "website"

To get an array of key-value pairs from the above object, we can use Object.entries().

let newArray = Object.entries(obj)

let map = new Map(newArray);

If we want to convert the Map in our previous example, back to Object it was created from(obj) we can use Object.fromEntries() method.
