15 Javascript codes you will always need

 

Shuffle an Array

Shuffling an array is super easy with sort and random methods.

const shuffleArray = (arr) => arr.sort(() => 0.5 - Math.random());console.log(shuffleArray([1, 2, 3, 4]));
// Result: [ 1, 4, 3, 2 ]

Check if Date is Valid

Use the following snippet to check if a given date is valid or not.

const isDateValid = (...val) => !Number.isNaN(new Date(...val).valueOf());isDateValid("December 17, 1995 03:24:00");
// Result: true

Copy to Clipboard

Easily copy any text to clipboard using navigator.clipboard.writeText.

const copyToClipboard = (text) => navigator.clipboard.writeText(text);copyToClipboard("Hello World");

Find the day of the year

Find which is the day by a given date.

const dayOfYear = (date) =>
Math.floor((date - new Date(date.getFullYear(), 0, 0)) / 1000 / 60 / 60 / 24);
dayOfYear(new Date());
// Result: 272

Capitalize a String

Javascript doesn’t have an inbuilt capitalize function, so we can use the following code for this purpose.

const capitalize = str => str.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + str.slice(1)capitalize("follow for more")
// Result: Follow for more

Find the number of days between two days

Find the days between 2 given days using the following snippet.

const dayDif = (date1, date2) => Math.ceil(Math.abs(date1.getTime() - date2.getTime()) / 86400000)dayDif(new Date("2020-10-21"), new Date("2021-10-22"))
// Result: 366

Clear All Cookies

You can easily clear all cookies stored on a web page by accessing the cookie using document.cookie and clearing it.

const clearCookies = document.cookie.split(';').forEach(cookie => document.cookie = cookie.replace(/^ +/, '').replace(/=.*/, `=;expires=${new Date(0).toUTCString()};path=/`));

Generate Random Hex

You can generate random hex colors with Math.random and padEnd properties.

const randomHex = () => `#${Math.floor(Math.random() * 0xffffff).toString(16).padEnd(6, "0")}`;console.log(randomHex());
// Result: #92b008

Remove Duplicated from Array

You can easily remove duplicates with Set in JavaScript. It’s a lifesaver.

const removeDuplicates = (arr) => [...new Set(arr)];console.log(removeDuplicates([1, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5, 6]));
// Result: [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ]

Get Query Params from URL

You can easily retrieve query params from a URL either bypassing window.location or the raw URL goole.com?search=easy&page=3

const getParameters = (URL) => {
URL = JSON.parse('{"' + decodeURI(URL.split("?")[1]).replace(/"/g, '\"').replace(/&/g, '","').replace(/=/g, '":"') +'"}');
return JSON.stringify(URL);
};
getParameters(window.location)
// Result: { search : "easy", page : 3 }

Log Time from Date

We can log time, in the format hour::minutes::seconds from a given date.

const timeFromDate = date => date.toTimeString().slice(0, 8);console.log(timeFromDate(new Date(2021, 0, 10, 17, 30, 0))); 
// Result: "17:30:00"

Check if a number is even or odd

const isEven = num => num % 2 === 0;console.log(isEven(2)); 
// Result: True

Find Average of Numbers

Find the average between multiple numbers using reducemethod.

const average = (...args) => args.reduce((a, b) => a + b) / args.length;average(1, 2, 3, 4);
// Result: 2.5

Check if the array is empty

A simple one-liner to check if an array is empty, will return trueor false.

const isNotEmpty = arr => Array.isArray(arr) && arr.length > 0;isNotEmpty([1, 2, 3]);
// Result: true

Get Selected Text

Get the text the user has selected using inbuilt getSelectionproperty.

const getSelectedText = () => window.getSelection().toString();getSelectedText();

Detect Dark Mode

Check if a user’s device is in dark mode with the following code.

const isDarkMode = window.matchMedia && window.matchMedia('(prefers-color-scheme: dark)').matchesconsole.log(isDarkMode) // Result: True or False
