    RunKit with @xcmats/js-toolbox

    • list member functions (link):

      var jsToolbox = require("@xcmats/js-toolbox")
      
      Object.keys(jsToolbox).sort()
      [ "Y",
        "access",

    use the source

    namespaces

    If you're experimenting via RunKit then prepend all namespaces with "jsToolbox." and if you're experimenting inside node.js console with npm package (as described above) then prepend all namespaces with "t.". If you're using the source and have launched node.js session via npm start then you're good to go ( ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

    examples

    array manipulation

    • Find the lenghts of the words in a given sentence and count how many of them exists in each length group.

      array.countBy(
          'exemplo plus quam ratione vivimus'.split(' '),
          w => w.length,
      );
      { '4': 2, '7': 3 }
    • Choose a random element from a given array (or a random character from a given string).

      array.draw(string.asciiLetters());
      'S'
    • Find duplicates in a given array.

      array.findDuplicates(['one', 'two', 'one', 'six', 'two', 'two']);
      [ 'one', 'two' ]
    • Flatten passed array, i.e. transform [[1, 2,], ..., [3, 4,],] to [1, 2, ..., 3, 4,].

      array.flatten(Object.entries({ a: 'b', c: 'd', e: 'f' }));
      [ 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f' ]
    • Return a list containing an arithmetic progression. range(i, j) returns [i, i+1, i+2, ..., j-1]. Possible invocations are: range(stop), range(start, stop), range(start, stop, step). When start is omitted it defaults to 0. When step is given, it specifies the increment (or decrement).

      array.range(10);
      [ 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 ]
      array.range(-128, -256, -16);
      [ -128, -144, -160, -176, -192, -208, -224, -240 ]
    • Randomly shuffle all elements in the given array (Durstenfeld's modification to the Fisher-Yates shuffle algorithm). The operation is taken in-place.

      array.shuffle(array.range(12));
      [ 9, 7, 0, 8, 2, 10, 3, 1, 11, 4, 5, 6 ]
    • Generate sparse array of distinct integers. sparse(stop, size) returns array of size distinct integers in range [0..stop-1]. sparse(start, stop, size) returns array of size distinct integers in range [start..stop-1].

      array.sparse(1024, 8);
      [ 6, 34, 170, 422, 530, 643, 855, 862 ]
    • "Zip" given arrays using provided f operator.

      array.zipWith((a, b) => a + b) ([1, 2, 3, 4], [10, 20, 30, 40]);
      [ 11, 22, 33, 44 ]
    • Take every 3rd element from a given array.

      array.takeEvery(3) ([0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]);
      [0, 3, 6, 9]

          let x = await async.parMap(
              array.range(10),
              (x) => async.timeout(() => {
                  console.log(4*x);
                  return 4*x;

          let x = await async.reduce(
              array.range(10),
              (acc, x) => async.timeout(() => {
                  console.log(acc+x);
                  return acc+x;
              }, 100*x),
          );

      struct.access({ a: { b: { c: 42 } } }, ['a', 'b', 'c']);
      42
    • Construct Object from the result of Object.entries() call. entries = [[k1, v1,], ..., [kn, vn,]]

      struct.dict([['a', 'b'], ['c', 'd'], ['e', 'f']]);
      { a: 'b', c: 'd', e: 'f' }
    • Shallow map (iteration) on objects.

      struct.objectMap(
          { what: 'od', i: '?rof dnats' },
          ([k, v,]) => [
              string.capitalize(k),
              v.split('').reverse().join(''),
          ],
      );
      { What: 'do', I: 'stand for?' }
    • Swap keys with values in a given Object.

      struct.swap({ a: 'b', c: 'd', e: 'f' });
      { b: 'a', d: 'c', f: 'e' }

    type primitives

    • Determine if a given value is a proper Number (not NaN and not Infinity).

      [type.isNumber(NaN), type.isNumber(-Infinity), type.isNumber(1234.5678)]
      [ false, false, true ]
    • Determine if a given value is an Object (not null, not undefined and not Array).

      [type.isObject(null), type.isObject([]), type.isObject({})]
      [ false, false, true ]
