    ReQL command: [] (bracket)

    Command syntax

    sequence[attr] → sequence

    singleSelection[attr] → value

    object[attr] → value

    array[index] → value

    Description

    Get a single field from an object. If called on a sequence, gets that field from every object in the sequence, skipping objects that lack it.

    Example: What was Iron Man’s first appearance in a comic?

    r.table('marvel').get('IronMan')['firstAppearance'].run(conn)
    

    The [] command also accepts integer arguments as array offsets, like the nth command.

    Example: Get the fourth element in a sequence. (The first element is position 0, so the fourth element is position 3.)

    r.expr([10, 20, 30, 40, 50])[3]
    
    40
