allthethings

Let your iterations read like actual sentences.

ALLTHETHINGS.JS

doSomethingTo.allThe(things);

Instead of coding like Yoda...

things.forEach(doSomething);

For no extra cost, you also get 'fromThe':

var proHackers = filterNoobs.fromThe(hackers);

And all for less than 1KB, with no dependencies. Delicious.

Install with: npm install allthethings

require('allthethings');

Download the production version or the development version.

By default, 'allThe' performs a 'map' on the array, which doubles as a 'forEach':

var words = ['all', 'the', 'things'];
 
function shout(word) {
    return alert(word);
}
 
shout.allThe(words);
var numbers = [1,2,3];
 
function triple(number) {
    return number * 3;
}
 
var multiplesOfThree = triple.allThe(numbers); // [3,6,9] 

If your named function starts with 'filter' or 'is', then a filter is performed.

When filtering, it's idiomatic to use 'fromThe' instead of 'allThe':

var numbers = [-2,-1,0,1,2];
 
function filterNegatives(number) {
    return number >= 0;
}
 
filterNegatives.fromThe(numbers); // [0,1,2] 
var numbers = [-2,-1,0,1,2];
 
function isPositive(number) {
    return number > 0;
}
 
isPositive.fromThe(numbers); // [1,2] 

If your named function starts with 'reduce', 'calculate' or 'add', then a reduce is performed.

When reducing, it's idiomatic to use 'fromThe' instead of 'allThe':

Given the 'numbers' array:

var numbers = [1,2,3];

Any of these will work identically:

function reduceTotal(ab) {
    return a + b;
}
 
var total = reduceTotal.fromThe(numbers); // 6 
function calculateTotal(ab) {
    return a + b;
}
 
var total = calculateTotal.fromThe(numbers); // 6 
function addTotal(ab) {
    return a + b;
}
 
var total = addTotal.fromThe(numbers); // 6 

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
