Key Points From This Episode:
- The first website: You-Don’t-Need-Lodash-Underscore.
- Why you should google “Do I need Lodash?” before installing it.
- The second website: 30 Seconds of Code.
- How you can let us know about any more of these kinds of websites that you may find.
- And much more!
I'll jump right to it. Website number one, or rather, GitHub number one, I should say, it's going to be, You-Don't-Need-Lodash. If you go to Google right now and say you don't need Lodash, chances are the first entry that comes in is You-Don't-Need-Lodash-Underscore. And if you go into that particular GitHub page, you'll find that there are a ton of functions that already exist natively for you to use.
The idea is that you cannot have to worry about importing a particular library, just to run one to two functions that you would like from Lodash. I find myself referring to this all the time, when I need to ensure that I can do a particular action without having to use Lodash, and it's been great for me. I don't think I've found the time where I could use Lodash over the native implementation.
I believe there are some instances where it doesn't look as clean. But that doesn't mean that you can't use it. And I would suggest if you're ever going to install Lodash, out of habit, I would go and pause for a second, google “Do I need Lodash?", or probably just google, “You don't need Lodash," and try to do all the functions natively.
So yeah, I mean, if you, can tag me on Twitter, either @radiofreerabbit or @googlemike, so that I can see what's out there and get better at coding.
