ignore-argument

Like Function.prototype.bind / partial application to ignore arguments.

NPM

Build status dependencies devdependencies

Available on NPM and bower under name ignore-argument.

Sometimes you need to create temp functions just to ignore some arguments

function foo(a, b) { ... }
function bar(cb) {
  // calls cb with 3 arguments!
  cb('foo', 'a', 'b');
}
bar(foo); // does not work, throws an error
bar(function (first, a, b) {
    // first argument is ignored
    return foo(a, b);
});

ignore-argument allows skipping (ignoring) arguments by position. Same example as above

bar(ignoreArgument(foo, true)); // ignored first argument to foo

You can ignore multiple arguments. For example to ignore first and third:

function bar(cb) {
  // calls cb with 4 arguments!
  cb('foo', 'a', 'bar', 'b');
}
// ignore first and third arguments
bar(ignoreArgument(foo, true, false, true));

You can also quickly solve the Madness of JavaScript problem.

['1', '2', '3'].map(parseInt); // [1, NaN, NaN]
['1', '2', '3'].map(ignoreArgument(parseInt, false, true)); // [1, 2, 3]
