How to extend an object in JavaScript

In this quick tutorial I'm going to go through a simple example of how you can extend an object in JavaScript. The first thing you'll need to do is get jQuery, which you can get here:

Once you have that included in your project, you can go ahead and extend an object by doing the following:

var firstObject = {
    title: "Mr",
    name: "Bob Smith"

// here we're going to extend that first object
$.extend(firstObject, {
    address: "10 Brown Ave."

In this previous object extension example, we've extended an object that just had title and name, and added another property called 'address'.

Hope this helps someone.
