How to transform a Array to a map in Javascript/Typescript

This might be an easy one but I thought it is worth saving it here.
Let's assume you want to create a HashMap in typescript or javascript with http status codes and corresponding messages. This might be useful within a frontend error handler.
Here is your error-messages.json

  {"code": 403,    "message": "You are not permitted to use this action."  },
  {"code": 400,    "message": "The request was incomplete or wrong."  }, 
  {"code": 500,    "message": "A general error has occured."  }

here is how you could use it in your code:

// Map with error codes
  errorCodeMapping: Map<number, string> = new Map<number, string>();
// read error codes as json map
let array = Array.from(require("./error-messages.json"));
// map array to errorCode Map
this.errorCodeMapping = new Map( ErrorMessage): [number, string] => [i.code, i.message]));
// get a message for an error code
let msg: string = this.errorCodeMapping.get(403);

We are using karma as the test runner within our angular 5 application. It does a pretty good job when it's time to build regression tests for our frontend. After a while using it I noticed an error during the coverage test run.

Sometimes this happens because we got an error wihtin the test cases. After writing a lot of test cases I noticed that the execution of all test cases took about 11 sec. So I increased our timeout with setting

browserNoActivityTimeout: 60000,

within the karma.conf. That fixed the issue.
