JavaScript: Get all unique values (form the right side of the array) of an array, based on a provided comparator function

JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-107 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to get all unique values (form the right side of the array) of an array, based on a provided comparator function.

  • Use Array.prototype.reduceRight() and Array.prototype.some() for an array containing only the last unique occurrence of each value, based on the comparator function, fn.
  • The comparator function takes two arguments: the values of the two elements being compared.

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2 
const uniqueElementsByRight = (arr, fn) =>
  arr.reduceRight((acc, v) => {
    if (!acc.some(x => fn(v, x))) acc.push(v);
    return acc;
  }, []);

console.log(uniqueElementsByRight(
  [
    { id: 0, value: 'a' },
    { id: 1, value: 'b' },
    { id: 2, value: 'c' },
    { id: 1, value: 'd' },
    { id: 0, value: 'e' }
  ],
  (a, b) => a.id == b.id
));

Sample Output:

[{"id":0,"value":"e"},{"id":1,"value":"d"},{"id":2,"value":"c"}]

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Returns an array of n-tuples of consecutive elements

Example:

const tips_arr = (n, arr) =>  n > arr.length ? [] : arr.slice(n - 1).map((v, i) =>[...arr.slice(i, i + n - 1), v]);
console.log(tips_arr(2, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5])); 
console.log(tips_arr(3, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]));
console.log(tips_arr(5, [1, 2, 3, 4]));

Output:

[[1, 2], [2, 3], [3, 4], [4, 5]]
[[1, 2, 3], [2, 3, 4], [3, 4, 5]]
[]
