How to use
You you can install via
npm install locutus and
require it via
You could also require the
array module in full
so that you could access
This function targets ES5, but as of Locutus 2.0.2 we also support ES6 functions. Locutus transpiles to ES5 before publishing to npm.
The mechanics and order of enumerating the properties is not specified.
So don't use this for anything serious if you rely on the order to be consistent accross platforms.
A community effort
Not unlike Wikipedia, Locutus is an ongoing community effort. Our philosophy follows The McDonald’s Theory. This means that we don't consider it to be a bad thing that many of our functions are first iterations, which may still have their fair share of issues. We hope that these flaws will inspire others to come up with better ideas.
This way of working also means that we don't offer any production guarantees, and recommend to use Locutus inspiration and learning purposes only.
While IE (and other browsers) support iterating an object’s own properties in order, if one attempts to add back properties in IE, they may end up in their former position due to their position being retained. So use of this function with “associative arrays” (objects) may lead to unexpected behavior in an IE environment if you add back properties with the same keys that you removed
Please note that these examples are distilled from test cases that automatically verify our functions still work correctly. This could explain some quirky ones.
