Underscore.js _.second() Method
  • Last Updated : 29 Jul, 2020

The _.second() method takes an array and an index and hence returns an array generated by taking elements from the original array starting with the second element and ending at the given index:

Syntax:

_.second(array, index);

Parameters:

  • array: The given array from the elements are to be taken.
  • index: The index up to which elements are to be taken.

Return Value: This method returns a generated array.

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



underscore.js contrib library can be installed using npm install underscore-contrib –save.

Example 1:




// Defining underscore contrib variable
var _ = require('underscore-contrib'); 
// Array
var array = [1, 2, -1, -1, 5, 6, -6, -6, -7, -8, 9, 9, 10];
// Creating array
var arr = _.second(array, 4);
console.log("Original Array : ", array);
console.log("Generated Array: ", arr);

Output:

Original Array :  [
   1,  2, -1, -1, 5, 6,
  -6, -6, -7, -8, 9, 9,
  10
]
Generated Array:  [ 2, -1, -1 ]

Example 2: if no index is passed, this method returns the second element from the original array




// Defining underscore contrib variable
var _ = require('underscore-contrib'); 
// Array
var array = [1, 2, -1, -1, 5, 6, -6, -6, -7, -8, 9, 9, 10];
// Creating array
var arr = _.second(array);
console.log("Original Array : ", array);
console.log("Element: ", arr);

Output:

Original Array :  [
   1,  2, -1, -1, 5, 6,
  -6, -6, -7, -8, 9, 9,
  10
]
Element:  2

Example 3: If the index passed is negative, the array is created up to the element on that index from right.




// Defining underscore contrib variable
var _ = require('underscore-contrib'); 
// Array
var array = [1, 2, -1, -1, 5, 6, -6, -6, -7, -8, 9, 9, 10];
// Creating array
var arr = _.second(array, -2);
console.log("Original Array : ", array);
console.log("Generated Array: ", arr);

Output:

Original Array :  [
   1,  2, -1, -1, 5, 6,
  -6, -6, -7, -8, 9, 9,
  10
]
Generated Array:  [
   2, -1, -1,  5, 6,
  -6, -6, -7, -8, 9
]

Example 4: If the index is out of bounds, the remaining full array is created after the second element.




// Defining underscore contrib variable
var _ = require('underscore-contrib'); 
// Array
var array = [1, 2, -1, -1, 5, 6, -6, -6, -7, -8, 9, 9, 10];
// Creating array
var arr = _.second(array, 100);
console.log("Original Array : ", array);
console.log("Generated Array: ", arr);

Output:

Original Array :  [
   1,  2, -1, -1, 5, 6,
  -6, -6, -7, -8, 9, 9,
  10
]
Generated Array:  [
   2, -1, -1,  5, 6,
  -6, -6, -7, -8, 9,
   9, 10
]
