In this post I will be writing about some lodash difference method examples. In lodash the difference method can be used to create an array of values that are not present in the other given arrays. So in other words it is a way to go about finding unique values that are in two or more given arrays.
The lodash distance method can be used to find the difference between two arrays. Just give an array as the first argument, and another as the second, and what will be returned is a new array of values that are not in second array when comparing element by element.
There is also the lodash difference with method as well on top of the regular lodash difference method. The difference is that I can use another method to aide in making the comparisons.
However if you are not all ready up to speed with the lodash filter method as well as the native Array.filter equivalent, then maybe it would be a good idea to look into
So the lodash difference method is another one of those kinds of methods that make me thing that lodash is not really necessary. Do not get me wrong the library does have its redeeming qualities when it comes to the idea of having a stand alone method for doing things rather than poly filling native methods. There are many taking points about why using lodash, or something like lodash in a project is a good idea. I just can nit say that the lodash difference method is one of the most compelling methods in the collection of methods. There is really just a hand full here and there that I actually find myself using, and even then I could just use a custom tailored utility library that is in tune with the project itself.
