You can get all the details and view the free sample here: Rapid Lo-Dash

If you’re a JavaScript developer, and you aren’t using Lo-Dash yet, you really need to check it out. It’ll help you write some cleaner, faster, more maintainable code. Don’t believe me?  Take a look at this example, and decide which code you would rather maintain.

var numbers = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6];
var odd_numbers = [];
for (var i = 0; i < numbers.length; i++) {
  if (numbers[i] % 2 == 1) {
var numbers = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6];
var odd_numbers = _.filter(numbers, function(num) {
	return num % 2 == 1;

Rapid Lo-Dash walks you through the basics of setting up your development environment, and using Lo-Dash to work with arrays. We’ll see examples of how to use Lo-Dash to work with object, collections, chaining, and get into some basic functional programming concepts.
