## JavaScript: Tips of the Day

|| operator

```const one = false || {} || null;
const two = null || false || '';
const three = [] || 0 || true;

console.log(one, two, three);
```

With the || operator, we can return the first truthy operand. If all values are falsy, the last operand gets returned.
(false || {} || null): the empty object {} is a truthy value. This is the first (and only) truthy value, which gets returned. one is equal to {}.
(null || false || ""): all operands are falsy values. This means that the last operand, "" gets returned. two is equal to "".
([] || 0 || ""): the empty array[] is a truthy value. This is the first truthy value, which gets returned. three is equal to [].
