whisk

Whisk is a collection of the functional operation helpers (underscore-like) for working with map, filter, reduce, etc.

Flatten an array using [].reduce

var flatten = require('whisk/flatten');
 
console.log([1, [2, 3], 4, [5]].reduce(flatten));
// --> [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ] 

Get the length of the target.

var length = require('whisk/length');
 
console.log(length([1, 2, 3]));
// --> 3 
 
console.log(length('Hello'));
// --> 5 
 
console.log(['Hi', 'there'].map(length));
// --> [ 2, 5 ] 

Designed to be used in combination with an [].filter the not function can be used to exlude items from an array.

var not = require('whisk/not');
var items = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e'];
 
console.log(items.filter(not('a')));
// --> [ 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e' ] 
 
console.log(items.filter(not(['a', 'b'])));
// --> [ 'c', 'd', 'e' ] 
 
console.log(items.filter(not('a', 'b')));
// --> [ 'c', 'd', 'e' ] 

Return only the unique elements of the list.

var nub = require('whisk/nub');
 
console.log(nub([ 1, 2, 3, 2, 3, 4 ]));
// --> [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ] 
 
console.log(nub([ 'red', 'blue', 'red' ]));
// --> [ 'red', 'blue' ] 
 
console.log(nub([ 4, 6, 6, 8, 3, 4, 1 ]));
// --> [ 4, 6, 8, 3, 1 ] 

Extract targeted properties from a source object. When a single property value is requested, then just that value is returned.

In the case where multiple properties are requested (in a varargs calling style) a new object will be created with the requested properties copied across.

NOTE: In the second form extraction of nested properties is not supported.

var pluck = require('whisk/pluck');
var people = [
  { name: 'Bob', age: 35, address: { country: 'Australia' } },
  { name: 'Thelma', age: 32, address: { country: 'New Zealand' } },
  { name: 'Roger', age: 50, address: { country: 'Fiji' } }
];
 
console.log(people.map(pluck('name')));
// --> [ 'Bob', 'Thelma', 'Roger' ] 
 
console.log(people.map(pluck('address.country')));
// --> [ 'Australia', 'New Zealand', 'Fiji' ] 
 
console.log(people.map(pluck('name', 'age')));
// --> [ { name: 'Bob', age: 35 }, { name: 'Thelma', age: 32 }, { name: 'Roger', age: 50 } ] 

Create an array of elements from x -> y (inclusive)

var pluck = require('whisk/range');
 
console.log(range(0, 3));
// --> [ 0, 1, 2, 3 ] 

Sum an input array of values

var sum = require('whisk/sum');
var range = require('whisk/range');
 
console.log(sum([1, 2]));
// --> 3 
 
console.log(sum(range(1, 10)));
// --> 55 
 
console.log([1, 2].reduce(sum));
// --> 3 
 
console.log(range(1, 10).reduce(sum));
// --> 55 
 

Create an element of arrays that can be iterated over n times:

var times = require('whisk/times');
 
times(3).forEach(function() {
  console.log('hello world');
});
 
// --> hello world 
// --> hello world 
// --> hello world 
 

zip one array with other arrays

var zip = require('whisk/zip');
 
console.log([1, 2, 3].map(zip(['a', 'b', 'c'])));
// --> [ [1, 'a'], [2, 'b'], [3, 'c'] ] 
 
console.log([1, 2, 3].map(zip(['a', 'b', 'c'], ['x', 'y', 'z'])));
// --> [ [1, 'a', 'x'], [2, 'b', 'y'], [3, 'c', 'z'] ]
