Why Lodash?

Lodash makes JavaScript easier by taking the hassle out of working with arrays, numbers, objects, strings, etc.

It can be broken down into several main areas:

  • checkUtilities - for simplifying common programming tasks such as determining type as well as simplifying math operations.
  • checkFunction - simplifying binding, decorating, constraining, throttling, debouncing, currying, and changing the pointer.
  • checkString - conversion functions for performing basic string operations, such as trimming, converting to uppercase, camel case, etc.
  • checkArray - creating, splitting, combining, modifying, and compressing.
  • checkCollection - iterating, sorting, filtering, splitting, and building.
  • checkObject - accessing, extending, merging, defaults, and transforming.
  • checkSeq - chaining, wrapping, filtering, and testing.
