re: 9 Extremely Powerful JavaScript Hacks VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Useful examples 👍

The word hacks makes me feel you write about dirty shortcuts, but these are actually absolutely good solutions to every-day problems. I wouldn't call them hacks.

 

Eh.. I wouldn't use most of them in production code (like shortcutting over using an if statement).

 
 

Probably not in a class or function, but it's super useful in template code or jsx when you are in need of a terse expression, such as to say 'if object exists, render object.property'... user && user.name, etc

Leave terse to compilers unless it makes your expression more clear.

 

Thank you.
You do have a fair point.
But any word I thought of (tricks, shortcuts, etc) felt like a synonym for "cutting corners".
