There is not much to write about when it come to using _.range, just call the method, and pass a count of the number of numbers that you need in the array if you just want a range of numbers from zero upwards then just one argument will work just fine like so.
Also a range between a start and end value can be done by passing the starting number first, and then the ending number.
Also when giving three arguments it is possible to set a step rate.
So a solution for this could be done with _.map or the native Array.map as well by creating an array that has a length that is the desired range, and then using the index argument that is given to the callback to set the numbers.
However if you aim to use the native Array.map it will not call the function for elements that do not have values, so a solution like this will not work with the native Array.map unless the array is filled before hand some how.
Yes it is not to hard at all to make a vanilla js replacement for _.range
Still making a simple method like this takes a little time, and if it is there in lodash all ready, and lodash is part of the projects stack, then there is no need to bother.
That is it for today, just wanted to do a quick post on a simple topic like this. lodash does have a lot of little methods like this that are not that complex, but do help save me the time of making a solution from scratch, or hunting something down at stack overflow.
