Lodash _.take() method is used to create a slice of an array with n elements from the beginning.

Syntax:

_.take(array, n);

Parameters:

  • array: This parameter holds the query array.
  • n: This parameter holds the number that represents the number of elements to take from the array.

Return Value:

This method returns an array of first n elements.

Example 1: In this example, we are creating a new array having 3 elements of an old array by the use of the lodash _.take() method.

javascript

const _ = require('lodash');
 
let x = [1, 2, 'a', { 'name': 'hello' }]
let newArray = _.take(x, 3);
 
console.log(newArray);

                    

Output:

[ 1, 2, 'a' ]

Example 2: In this example, we are creating a new array having 2 elements of an old array by the use of the lodash _.take() method.

javascript

const _ = require('lodash');
 
let x = [
    { 'name': 'lodash' },
    { 'name': 'npm' },
    { 'name': 'nodejs' }
]
let newArray = _.take(x, 2);
 
console.log(newArray);

                    

Output:

[ { name: 'lodash' }, { name: 'npm' } ]

Example 3: In this example, we are creating a new array having 5 elements of an old array by the use of the lodash _.take() method.

javascript

const _ = require('lodash');
 
let x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
let newArray = _.take(x, 5);
 
console.log(newArray);

                    

Output:

[ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ]

Note: This will not work in normal JavaScript because it requires the library lodash to be installed.
