You Don’t Need Loops in JavaScript




You Don’t Need Loops in JavaScript

1. To Loop Through All Elements and Get an new modified array

Using loop:

var names = ["Jack", "Jecci", "Ram", "Tom"];
var upperCaseNames = [];
for(let i=0, totalNames = names.length; i< totalNames ; i= i +1) {
    upperCaseNames[i] = names[i].toUpperCase();
}

Without loop:

var names = ["Jack", "Jecci", "Ram", "Tom"];
var upperCaseNames = names.map(name => name.toUpperCase());

2. Loop through all elements and perform an action

Using loops

function print(name) {
   console.log(name);
}
var names = ["Jack", "Jecci", "Ram", "Tom"];
for(let i=0, totalNames = names.length; i< totalNames ; i= i +1) {
    print(names[i])
}

without loop

var names = ["Jack", "Jecci", "Ram", "Tom"];
names.forEach(name=> print(name));

Using filter:

var numbers = [1,2,3,4,5, 6, 7]
var odd = numbers.filter(n => n%2); // single line

Using reduce:

var numbers = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7];
function sum(accumulator, currentValue){
   return accumulator + currentValue;
}
var initialVal = 0;
var result = numbers.reduce(sum, initialVal);

The above code can be even more simplified:

var numbers = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7, 10];
var result = numbers.reduce((acc, val)=> acc+val, 0);
