type-reverse

2.0.2 • Public • Published

type-reverse

Build Status tested with jest Made in Nigeria

🦄 Lightweight reverse utility around strings, arrays, numbers and more.

Install

$ npm install --save type-reverse

Usage

const reverse = require('type-reverse')

or...

import reverse from 'type-reverse'

API

reverse( input[, options][, callback] )

Params

  • input {String|Number|Array|Set}
  • options {?Object}
  • callback {?Function}
  • returns {*}
reverse('pizza')
//=> azzip

Works with numbers too.

reverse(1234)
//=> 4321

Reversing arrays...

When JavaScript's Array#reverse method is used, the original array is mutated, as in, the indexes of the elements are changed. On the other hand, this utility adopts the non-destructive array reversal method, which means the reverse() function doesn't mutate the array; it just returns the reversed array and still maintains the indexes of the elements in the original array.

native reverse...

const arr = [1, 2, 3]
arr.reverse() //=> [3, 2, 1]

Oops, we lost the indexes of elements in the initial array...

console.log(arr) //=> [3, 2, 1]

vs...

🦄 to the rescue...

const arr = [1, 2, 3]
reverse(arr) //=> [3, 2, 1]

Yay! arr is not mutated. The indexes of its elements are still maintained...

console.log(arr) //=> [1, 2, 3]

Sets

If you've been wondering how to reverse Sets in JavaScript, here's it! The core reverse function can take in a Set as the input and then return the reversed Set...

const set = new Set([5, 4, 3, 4, 5])
reverse(set) //=> Set { 3, 4, 5 }

options

options is the second parameter to the function call and it is an object with two available properties. It can also take in a falsy value which would implicity get converted to an empty object.

invert: {String}

This property defaults to index and applies to strings and numbers only.

reverse(/*...*/, {
  invert: '[index|word|sign]'
})
  • index - interchanges the indexes of characters in the input...

    reverse(12345, { invert: 'index' }) //=> 54321
    reverse('of... unicorns', { invert: 'index' }) //=> snrocinu ...fo
  • sign - inverts the sign in a number...

    reverse(1234, { invert: 'sign' }) //=> -1234
  • word - swaps the location of words in a string...

    reverse('of... unicorns', { invert: 'word' }) //=> unicorns of...

preserveZeros: {Boolean}

This property defaults to true. It specifies whether to enforce preceding zeros in the result of a number that contains trailing zeros. See #3 for more info. Note that the result gets converted to a string. Disabling it would look like this...

reverse(240, { preserveZeros: false }) //=> 42

callback: {Function}

The callback takes in a function with two optional parameters that represent input and result respectively.

  • input - the initial input that was passed into the function
  • result - the output from reversing the input
const text = 'dog'
 
reverse(text, null, function(intitial, result) {
  return intitial + ' was changed to ' + result
}) //=> dog was changed to god

Limits

Did you just try to reverse a reaally huge number? Unfortunately, this utility doesn't support very large numbers. Trying to do so with this utility would throw a TypeError.
