Lodash is a collection of utilities that have become a staple of modern web development. This collection will show you how to re-create its most common methods using simple JavaScript techniques available in any modern web browser. In addition to re-building tools like _.merge, _.get and _.debounce from scratch you will also learn how to replace them completely in some cases with modern syntax such as optional chaining, nullish coalescing and Object.fromEntries.

This collection should interest the following groups:

  • Those who want to better understand common JavaScript patterns
  • Engineers who want to reduce their dependence on Lodash (for performance or other reasons)
  • Candidates preparing for a technical job interview (where it is common to be asked how to implement some of these methods).
