    Array Extension

    Array Extension is a library that extends the functionality of the Arrays on Javascript.

    Instalation

    npm i lr-array-extension -S

    Usage

    To use this library all you need to do is to import the library

    require('lr-array-extension');

    at this moment the prototype of every array is changed and can make use of the methods.

    Example of usage:

    require('lr-array-extension');
     
    const array = [1 ,2 ,3, 4, 5];
     
    console.log(array.max()); // This prints 5 as is the max value of the array

    Methods

    • each( callback )

      each() executes callback for each value of the array.

      • callback - A function that takes the following parameters:
        • value: Is equal to the current value of the array.
        • index: Is equal to the current index of the array.

      Throws TypeError when the callback is not a function.

    • where( spec )

      where() returns a new array from the elements of the array that satisfies the spec function.

      • spec - A function that takes two params:
        • value: Is equal to the current value of the array.
        • index: Is equal to the current index of the array.

      Throws TypeError when spec is not a function.

      Returns - A new array with the elements that satisfy the spec function.

    • any( spec )

      any() returns true when the value of spec is on the array, if spec is a function then it evaluates every value in the array and returns true if spec returns true for any evaluation, otherwise it returns false.

      • spec can be any value that will be compared to every value in the array unless it's a function then it'll be called for every value of the array, it takes two params on its function form:
        • value: Is equal to the current value of the array.
        • index: Is equal to the current index of the array.

      Returns - true if the spec is equal to a value on the array or the evaluation of spec is true for any value of the array.

    • select( spec )

      select() returns a new array with the values returned by the spec function for each value of the array.

      • spec - A callback function that takes two params:
        • value: Is equal to the current value of the array.
        • index: Is equal to the current index of the array.

      Throws TypeError when spec is not a function.

      Returns - A new array with the return values of spec for every value of the array.

    • take( howMany, spec )

      take() Returns a new array with a maximun number of values equal to howMany, if spec is present then the resulting values need to satisfy the function to be added to the resulting array.

      • howMany - A number that sets the maximun number of values on the resulting array.
      • spec - A function that is called for every value of the array, if it returns true then the value can be added to the resulting array. It has two params:
        • value: Is equal to the current value of the array.
        • index: Is equal to the current index of the array.

      Throws TypeError when spec is not a function.

      Returns - An array of maximun size equal to howMany and filtered by spec if present.

    • skip( howMany )

      skip() Returns a new array with the values of the array minus the first howMany values.

      • howMany - The number of values of the array to be skiped in the new array.

      Returns - A new array with the values that didn't got skiped.

    • first( spec )

      first() Returns the first element on the collection that satisfies spec, if spec is not present then it returns the first value of the array. Returns a null value if the collection is empty or there's no element to match.

      • spec - A function to evaluate every value of the array.

      Returns - The first element to satisfy spec or null if there's no match.

      Throws TypeError when spec is not a function.

    • last( spec )

      last() Returns the last element on the collection that satisfies spec, if spec is not present then it returns the last value of the array. Returns a null value if the collection is empty or there's no element to match.

      • spec - A function to evaluate every value of the array.

      Returns - The last element to satisfy spec or null if there's no match.

      Throws TypeError when spec is not a function.

    • count( spec )

      count() Returns the number of elements on the collection that satifies spec, if spec is not present then it returns the length.

      • spec - A function that evaluates every value of the array, if spec returns true then the value is counted towards the total.

      Returns - The count of values that satisfied the spec function or the length of the array if spec is not present.

      Throws TypeError when spec is not a function.

    • index( spec )

      index() return the zero based position in the array of the element that satisfies spec.

      • spec - The value to be matched on every value of the array on search of it, if spec is a fuction then a value is found when the function is satisfied with that value, otherwise it will look for a value on the array that is equal to spec. On its function form spec takes two params:
        • value: Is equal to the current value of the array.
        • index: Is equal to the current index of the array.

      Returns - The index of the match with spec or -1 if there's no match.

    • pluck( property )

      pluck() Returns a new array with the values of the property for each value of the array.

      • property- Name of the property that is going to be filling the array.

      Returns - An array with the values of the property, if a property is found as undefined then is not added to the array.

    • sum( spec ) returns the sum of the result of excecuting spec, if spec is not present, it will return the summatory of the array.

      • spec - A function to be executed for every value of the array, its return value added is what forms the result, it takes two params:
        • value: Is equal to the current value of the array.
        • index: Is equal to the current index of the array.

      Retuns - The result of adding all the values returned by spec or the sum of every value of the array if spec is not present or null if the array is empty.

      Throws TypeError If spec is present and is not a function.

    • max( comparer ) returns the maximum value on the collection or null if the array is empty, if comparer is not present it will evaluate the elements as if they where numbers.

      • comparer - A function used to make the comparations, this param not being present means the comparations will be made as if every value on the array where numbers. Returns negative when valueA < value B, zero when valueA === valueB or positive when valueA > valueB. It takes two params:
        • valueA: The first value to compare.
        • valueB: The second value to compare.

      Returns - The maximum value on the array acording to the comparer.

      Throws TypeError If spec is present and is not a function.

    • min( comparer ) returns the minumum value on the collection or null if the array is empty, if comparer is not present it will evaluate the elements as if they where numbers.

      • comparer - A function used to make the comparations, this param not being present means the comparations will be made as if every value on the array where numbers. Returns negative when valueA < value B, zero when valueA === valueB or positive when valueA > valueB. It takes two params:
        • valueA: The first value to compare.
        • valueB: The second value to compare.

      Returns - The minimum value on the array acording to the comparer.

      Throws TypeError If spec is present and is not a function.

    • flatten() Returns new array with the values of the array, this new array is always flat so if the array contains another array it will take the values of the inner array and insert them on the outer array.

      Returns - A flat representation of the array.
