Package description

What is lodash?

Lodash is a JavaScript library that provides utility functions for common programming tasks using a functional programming paradigm. It includes functions for manipulating and traversing arrays, objects, and strings, as well as utilities for functions, language, math, number, object, sequence, and utility methods.

What are lodash's main functionalities?

Array Manipulation

Lodash provides a rich set of array manipulation functions such as map, filter, find, and sort. The code sample demonstrates sorting an array in ascending order using a custom comparator.

[3, 2, 1].sort(_.compareWith(function(a, b) { return a - b; }))

Object Manipulation

Lodash allows for easy manipulation and traversal of objects. The code sample shows how to assign properties from source objects to a destination object.

_.assign({ 'a': 1 }, { 'b': 2 }, { 'c': 3 })

String Manipulation

Lodash includes functions to manipulate strings, such as converting to different cases, trimming, padding, etc. The code sample demonstrates converting a string to kebab-case.

_.kebabCase('Foo Bar')

Function Utilities

Lodash provides function utilities like debounce and throttle to control function invocation. The code sample shows a debounced function that will only be invoked after 250 milliseconds have passed without it being called again.

_.debounce(function() { console.log('Debounced'); }, 250)

Language Utilities

Lodash includes utilities for deep cloning, merging, and comparing objects. The code sample demonstrates deep cloning an object to ensure nested objects are cloned as well.

_.cloneDeep({ 'a': 1, 'b': { 'c': 2 } })
