So the lodash _.isEmpty method can be used to check if an object collection is empty or not. If the collection is just an object with one or more public key value pairs then it is not empty, the same is true with arrays when they have one ore more indexed values.
This is the intended use of the is empty method in lodash
The lodash is empty method is for finding out if a collection does not have any items and that is it. It is not for finding out if a value fits other meanings of the word empty. For example when passing boolean values to the is empty method a boolean value will always return true even if the value is false.
