JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Returns all unique values of an array, based on a provided comparator function

Example:

const tips_uniqueElementsBy = (arr, fn) =>
  arr.reduce((acc, v) => {
    if (!acc.some(x => fn(v, x))) acc.push(v);
    return acc;
  }, []);

console.log(tips_uniqueElementsBy(
  [
    { id: 0, value: 'p' },
    { id: 1, value: 'q' },
    { id: 2, value: 'r' },
    { id: 1, value: 's' },
    { id: 0, value: 't' }
  ],
  (a, b) => a.id == b.id
)); 

Output:

[[object Object] {
  id: 0,
  value: "p"
}, [object Object] {
  id: 1,
  value: "q"
}, [object Object] {
  id: 2,
  value: "r"
}]
