ReQL command: without

Command syntax

sequence.without([selector1, selector2...]) → stream

array.without([selector1, selector2...]) → array

singleSelection.without([selector1, selector2...]) → object

object.without([selector1, selector2...]) → object


The opposite of pluck; takes an object or a sequence of objects, and returns them with the specified fields or paths removed.

Example: Since we don’t need it for this computation we’ll save bandwidth and leave out the list of IronMan’s romantic conquests.


Example: Without their prized weapons, our enemies will quickly be vanquished.


Example: Nested objects can be used to remove the damage subfield from the weapons and abilities fields.

    r.hashMap("weapons", r.hashMap("damage", true))
     .with("abilities", r.hashMap("damage", true))

Example: The nested syntax can quickly become overly verbose so there’s a shorthand for it.

 .without(r.hashMap("weapons", "damage").with("abilities", "damage")).run(conn);
