Unpack a property of an object with different name

Written byPhuoc Nguyen

We can use the destructuring assignment syntax to unpack a property of a given object and rename it:
const person = {
name: 'John Doe',

const { name } = person;

// Or unpack with other name
const { name: fullName } = person;
In the sample code above, `fullName` is an alias of the `name` property. Both the `name` and `fullName` variables are `John Doe`.
