JavaScript: Get a list of elements that exist in both arrays, after applying the provided function to each array element of both

JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-210 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to get a list of elements that exist in both arrays, after applying the provided function to each array element of both.

  • Use Array.prototype.filter() and Array.prototype.findIndex() in combination with the provided comparator to determine intersecting values

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2 
const intersectionBy = (a, b, fn) => {
  const s = new Set(b.map(x => fn(x)));
  return a.filter(x => s.has(fn(x)));
};

console.log(intersectionBy([2.1, 1.2], [2.3, 3.4], Math.floor));

Sample Output:

[2.1]

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Checking if a key exists in a JavaScript object?

Checking for undefined-ness is not an accurate way of testing whether a key exists. What if the key exists but the value is actually undefined?

var obj = { key: undefined };
obj["key"] !== undefined // false, but the key exists!

You should instead use the in operator:

"key" in obj // true, regardless of the actual value

If you want to check if a key doesn't exist, remember to use parenthesis:

!("key" in obj) // true if "key" doesn't exist in object
!"key" in obj   // ERROR!  Equivalent to "false in obj"

Or, if you want to particularly test for properties of the object instance (and not inherited properties), use hasOwnProperty:

obj.hasOwnProperty("key") // true
