Lodash _.method() Method

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

The _.method() method creates a function that invokes the method at the path of a given object. Any additional arguments are provided to the invoked method.

Syntax: 

_.method(path, args)

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

  • path: This is the path to invoke.
  • args: These are the arguments to invoke the method with.

Return Value: This method returns the new invoker function.
