Lodash _.flatMapDeep() Method

  • Last Updated : 14 Sep, 2020

Lodash is a JavaScript library that works on the top of underscore.js. Lodash helps in working with arrays, collection, strings, objects, numbers etc.

The _.flatMapDeep() method creates a flattened array of values by running each element in the given collection through the iteratee function and recursively flattens the mapped results. It is similar to _.flatMap() method.

Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof. But before you tackle the big projects, we suggest you start by learning the basics. Kickstart your web development journey by learning JS concepts with our JavaScript Course. Now at it's lowest price ever!

Syntax:

_.flatMapDeep( collection, iteratee )

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:



  • collection: It is the collection to iterate over.
  • iteratee: It is the function that is invoked per iteration.

Return Value: This method returns the new flattened array.

Example 1:




// Requiring the lodash library 
const _ = require("lodash");
      
// Original array 
var users = (['aaa', 'bbb', 'ccc'
              'ddd', 'eee', 'fff']);
  
// Using the _.flatMapDeep() method
let flat_map =
  _.flatMapDeep(users,
    function duplicate(n) {
      return [[[n, n]]];
  }
)
  
// Printing the output 
console.log(flat_map);

Output:

[
  'aaa', 'aaa', 'bbb', 'bbb',
  'ccc', 'ccc', 'ddd', 'ddd',
  'eee', 'eee'
]

Example 2:




// Requiring the lodash library 
const _ = require("lodash"); 
      
// Original array 
var user1 = ([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]);
var user2 = (['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e']);
  
// Using the _.flatMapDeep() method
let flat_map1 =
  _.flatMapDeep(user1,
    function makePattern(n) {
      return [[[n, n + "->"]]];
  }
)
   
let flat_map2 =
  _.flatMapDeep(user2,
    function makePattern(n) {
      return [[["<-" + n, n]]];
  }
)
  
// Printing the output 
console.log(flat_map1);
console.log(flat_map2);

Output:

[
  1, 1->, 2, 2->, 3, 3->,
  4, 4->, 5, 5->, 6, 6->,
  7, 7->
]
[
  '<-a', 'a', <-'b', 'b',
  '<-c', 'c', '<-d', 'd',
  '<-e', 'e'
]
