A tiny modular Javascript utility library

Overslash is an utility library as Underscore and Lodash. However, Overslash doesn't pretend to compete with these honorable libraries. Overslash implements only a small subset of the functions that can be found in these library.

Overslash ambition is quite different. Overslash is modular. You can build a version with only the subset of the functions you need.

Then, you can embed it in your own library. So, you can ship your library without any external dependencies.

_.isNumber(n)           | Returns true if the value of n is a number,
_.isNaN(n)              | Returns true if the value of n is a NaN,
_.isOdd(n)              | Returns true if the value of n is an odd number,

_.isObject(n)           | Returns true if the variable n is an object,

_.keys(o)               | Retrieves all the names of the object's own enumerable properties,
_.forPropIn             | Parses all the names of the object's own enumerable properties,

_.contains(arr, value)  | Returns true if the array contains the passed-in value,
_.flatten(arr)          | Flattens a nested array (the nesting can be to any depth),
_.max(arr)              | Returns the maximum value in the array,
_.min(arr)              | Returns the minimum value in the array,
_.share(arr)            | Returns the list of the elements the passed-in arrays have in common,

_.token()               | Returns a unique string pattern in base 36 ([0-9a-z]),
_.makeid()              | Returns a unique string pattern with a predefined length,
_.csv2array(csv)        | Converts an csv block to an array or arrays,

How to embed Overslash in your library

Overslash is included in a Javascript module pattern. It exports only the variable overslash outside this module. Thus, you can safely embed Overslash in your library without any risk to pollute your namespace.

Overslash module pattern looks like this:

(function(root, factory) {
  'use strict';
 
  if (typeof define === 'function' && define.amd) {
    define([''], factory);
  } else if (typeof exports === 'object') {
    module.exports = factory();
  } else {
    // Browser globals.
    root.overslash = factory();
  }
}(this, function() {
  'use strict';
 
  var overslash = {
    // ...
  };
 
  return overslash;
}));

You just need to replace this by the namespace of your library:

(function(root, factory) {
  // ...
    // Browser globals.
    root.overslash = factory();
  }
}(this, function() { // <--- replace this by your library namespace
  // ...

You can now add a reference to Overslash inside your library:

 
var myLibraryName = {};
 
// Embed Overslash and replace 'this' by 'myLibraryName':
(function());
 
// You can now access to Overslash:
var _ = myLibraryName.overslash;
