Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">

A mini clone of the Lodash library.


BEWARE: This library was published for learning purposes. It is not intended for use in production-grade software.

This project was created and published by me as part of my learnings at Lighthouse Labs.


Install it:

npm install @ahrke/lotide

Require it:

const _ = require('@ahrke/lotide');

Call it:

const results = _.tail([1, 2, 3]) // => [2, 3]

  • countOnly(Array, Object): Takes in an array, and an object identifying what value to count from the array
  • letterPositions(String): returns an object with each letter from given string, as well as their positions inside the string
  • findKeyByValue(Object, valueToSearch): searches through object for a key with the given valueToSearch. Returns the key
  • eqArrays(arr1, arr2): Takes in two arrays and returns true when both are strictly equal, and false otherwise
  • eqObjects(obj1, obj2): Takes in two objects and returns true when both are strictly equal, and false otherwise
