How to get a particular attribute when using filter function in javascript?

mikha asked
Last Modified: 2021-01-14
I have a json response as such,

   "results": [
                     "id": "123",
                     "list": [
                              {"key": "source",   "value": {"stringtype": "somesite"}}, 
                              {"key": "otherkey", "value": {"stringtype": "abc"}}

I do something like this to get the array item inside the list array with a particular key

let somevariable = results[0].list?.filter(attr => attr.key === 'source');

the line above returns an array , like this

[{"key": "source",   "value": {"stringtype": "somesite"}}]
once i filter , can't i directly select the value for "stringtype" , i.e. somesite

my goal is to select the value of stringtype attribute , which is "somesite" where value of key is source in that array element
