Javascript Question

Constructor object model JS

So I'm all new to JavaScript and for a school assignment we were asked to use the NY-Times API to create a web-project. My teacher wants me to rewrite this code, using a constructor object model. So my question is, how can this be done?

$.getJSON('https://api.nytimes.com/svc/events/v2/listings.json',
{'api-key': "2cb941103998461990415c7e7fafb8c7", 'filters': "-movies"
},
function(data) {
for (var i = 0; i < data.results.length; i++) {
var event= data.results[i];


var nameEvent= event.event_name;
var Category3= event.category
var descriptionWeb= event.web_description
var Borough3 = event.borough;
var timeAndTime = event.date_time_description;

var eventPost = {
eventName: nameEvent,
category: Category3,
description: descriptionWeb,
borough: Borough3,
time: timeAndTime
};

var eventHTML= $( '<event>'
+ ' <h2>'+ nameEvent + '</h2>'
+ ' <h3>'+ Category3 + '</h3>'
+ ' <p>' + descriptionWeb + '</p>'
+ ' <p>' + Borough3 + '</p>'
+ ' <p>' + timeAndTime + '</p>'
+ '</event>' );

var events= $('#EVENTS');
events.append(eventHTML);
}
}
);

Answer

since you have created object so if you want a new object you need to write their properties each time . now this function(constructor) will take care of that . and you can create object as many as possible.

function model(a,b,c,d,e) {
  this.eventName = a;
  this.category = b;
  this.description = c;
  this.borough = d;
  this.time = e;
}


var eventPost =new model (nameEvent,Category3,descriptionWeb,Borough3,timeAndTime);
