Installation

Run

tns plugin add nativescript-enumerable

inside your app project to install the module.

Usage

Create a sequence

import Enumerable = require("nativescript-enumerable");
 
// from a list of values / objects with variable length
var seq1 = Enumerable.create(1, 'MK', true, null, {});
 
// from an array / list
var seq2 = Enumerable.fromArray([11, 22, 33, 44]);
 
// from object
var seq3 = Enumerable.fromObject({
    MK: 23979,
    TM: 5979
});
 
// range of numbers: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
var seq4 = Enumerable.range(2, 5);
 
// 50979 'TM' strings
var seq5 = Enumerable.repeat('TM', 50979);

Work with them

var seq = Enumerable.create(5979, 23979, null, '23979', 1781, 241279);
 
var newSeq = seq.where((x) => x !== null)  // remove all elements that are (null)
                .skip(1)  // skip one element (5979)
                .take(3)  // take next remaining 3 elements (23979, 23979, 1781)
                .distinct()  // remove duplicates
                .select((x) => "" + x)  // convert to strings
                .order();  // order by element ascending
 
newSeq.each((item) => {
    // [0] 1781
    // [1] 23979
    console.log(item);
});

Most methods are chainable as in .NET context.

Functions and lambda expression

Many methods require one or more function.

Instead using a function like

.where(function(x) {
           return x !== null;
       })

you can write

.where('x => x !== null')

instead.

Documentation

The full documentation with all functions and methods can be found on readme.io.

Demo app

The demo app contains examples to all functions and methods.

It also contains a code editor where you can enter own code and run it!

The wiki describes how it works.

Examples

Filters

// distinct()
// 1, 2, 4, 3
Enumerable.create(1, 2, 4, 2, 3)
          .distinct();
 
// except()
// 2.0, 2.1, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5
Enumerable.create(2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5)
          .except([2.2]); 
 
// intersect()
// 26, 30
Enumerable.create(44, 26, 92, 30, 71, 38)
          .intersect([30, 59, 83, 47, 26, 4, 3]);
       
// ofType()
// '2', 'Tanja'
Enumerable.create(1, '2', 2, 'Tanja', 3)
          .ofType('string');  // typeof x == 'string'
          
// union()
// 5, 3, 9, 7, 8, 6, 4, 1, 0
Enumerable.create(5, 3, 9, 7, 5, 9, 3, 7)
          .union([8, 3, 6, 4, 4, 9, 1, 0]);
          
// where()
// 1, 2, 3
Enumerable.create(1, 2, 3, 4)
          .where((x) => x < 4);

Sort elements

// orderBy(), thenBy()
//
// "apple", "grape", "mango", "banana",
// "orange", "blueberry", "raspberry", "passionfruit"
Enumerable.create("grape", "passionfruit", "banana", "mango", 
                  "orange", "raspberry", "apple", "blueberry")
          .orderBy((x) => x.length)  // complement: orderByDescending()
          .thenBy((x) => x);  // complement: thenByDescending()
                              // shorter: then()
 
// reverse()
// 4, 3, 2, 1
Enumerable.create(1, 2, 3, 4)
          .reverse();

Take / skip elements

// skip()
// 3, 4
Enumerable.create(0, 1, 2, 3, 4)
          .skip(3);
 
// skipLast()
// 0, 1, 2, 3
Enumerable.create(0, 1, 2, 3, 4)
          .skipLast();
          
// skipWhile()
// 55, 666, 77
Enumerable.create(22, 33, 44, 55, 666, 77)
          .skipWhile((x) => x < 50);
          
// take()
// 0, 1, 2
Enumerable.create(0, 1, 2, 3, 4)
          .take(3);
 
// takeWhile()
// 22, 33, 44
Enumerable.create(22, 33, 44, 55)
          .takeWhile((x) => x < 50);

Get one element

// elementAt()
// 33
Enumerable.create(11, 22, 33, 44)
          .elementAt(2);
          
// elementAtOrDefault()
// 'TM'
Enumerable.create(11, 22, 33, 44)
          .elementAtOrDefault(4, 'TM');  // out of range
          
// first()
// 11
Enumerable.create(11, 22, 33, 44)
          .first();
          
// firstOrDefault()
// 'MK'
Enumerable.create()
          .firstOrDefault('MK');
          
// last()
// 44
Enumerable.create(11, 22, 33, 44)
          .last();
          
// lastOrDefault()
// 'PZ'
Enumerable.create()
          .lastOrDefault('PZ');
 
// single()
// EXCEPTION, because we have more than one element
Enumerable.create(11, 22, 33, 44)
          .single();
          
// singleOrDefault()
// 11
Enumerable.create(11)
          .singleOrDefault('YS');

All methods with NO OrDefault suffix will throw exceptions if no element was found.

You also can use a function as first argument for all of these methods that works as filter / condition:

// first()
// 22
Enumerable.create(11, 22, 33, 44)
          .first((x) => x >= 20);

Accumulators

// aggregate()
// "Marcel Joachim Kloubert"
Enumerable.create('Marcel', 'Joachim', 'Kloubert')
          .aggregate((result: string, x: string) => {
                         return result += " " + x;
                     });
 
// average()
// 2.5
Enumerable.create(1, 2, 3, 4)
          .average();
          
// sum()
// 10
Enumerable.create(1, 2, 3, 4)
          .sum();  

Minimum / maximum values

// max()
// 3
Enumerable.create(1, 3, 2)
          .max(); 
          
// min()
// 1
Enumerable.create(2, 3, 1, 2)
          .min();
