helprjs

A toolkit to help solve challenging tasks with object and arrays. Helprjs is fully documented with live Demos and its really simple to use!

Q&A:

Whilst helprjs is fully tested should you ecounter issues please report them.

Most of the examples here make use of this people object.

const people = [
    { id: 1, firstName: 'John', secondName: 'Smith', age: '61', status: 1 },
    { id: 2, firstName: 'John', secondName: 'West', age: '55', status: true },
    { id: 3, firstName: 'Brenda', secondName: 'Holt', age: '60', status: false },
    { id: 4, firstName: 'Sally', secondName: 'Brampton', age: '33', status: undefined },
    { id: 5, firstName: 'June', secondName: 'Chester', age: '47', status: NaN },
    { id: 6, firstName: 'Jack', secondName: 'Carter', age: '24', status: null },
    { id: 7, firstName: 'Jack', secondName: 'Foster', age: '58', status: 0 },
    { id: 7, firstName: 'Jack', secondName: 'Foster', age: '58', status: 0 },
    { id: 7, firstName: 'Jack', secondName: 'Foster', age: '58', status: 0 },
];

Methods

Methods can be grouped into the following categories:

General : object array manipulation

Array: array only

Boolean : returns true or false

Helpers : deals with values

Numerical : uses numerical data

Vailidation : returns only objects that meet the valid criteria

General

mergeArraysRemoveDuplicates - Demo

merges two arrays and removes all duplicates

//Note: (array, key, minimumLength, maximumLength)
returns only objects containing text within min and max length

Combination - Demo

In this example five methods have been used to generate a desired output.  
It is overengineered and an unlikely requirement however it demonstrates 
more possibilities when using helprjs.
