40+ Killer JavaScript One Liners πŸ”₯

πŸ‘‹ Hey Everyone! Comment your Best One-liner JS code. πŸ™


[1. Get a random boolean]

This function will return a boolean (true or false) using Math.random() method. It’s a 50/50 chance to get either true or false.

const RandomBoolean = () => Math.random() >= 0.5;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[02. Check if the provided date is a weekday or Weekend]

const isWeekend = date => [0, 6].indexOf(date.getDay()) !== -1;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[03. Check if a number is even or odd]

const isEven = num => num % 2 === 0;
// OR
const isEven = (n) => !(n & 1);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[04. Remove all duplicate values in an array]

const setArr = arr => [...new Set(arr)];
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[05. Check if a variable is an array]

A clean and easy way to check if a variable is an array.

const isArray = (arr) => Array.isArray(arr);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[06. Generate a random number between two numbers]

This will take two numbers as params and will generate a random number between those two numbers!

const random = (min, max) => Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1) + min);
console.log(random(55, 999));
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[07. Generate a random string (unique id?)]

const randomString = () => Math.random().toString(36).slice(2);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[08. Swapping Two Variables || Destructuring]

Destructuring assignment that swaps the variables values

let bar = 'πŸ₯Ά';
[foo, bar] = [bar, foo];
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[09. Calculate number of days between two dates]

To calculate the days between two dates, we first find the absolute between two dates and then divide it with 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000 = 86400000 which is equal to milliseconds in a single day, and at the end, we round the result and return it.

const daysDiff = (date, date2) => Math.ceil(Math.abs(date - date2) / 86400000);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

πŸ”₯ You can use Math.round or Math.floor instead of Math.ceil.

[10. Different ways of merging multiple arrays]

// Merge but don't remove the duplications
const merge = (a, b) => a.concat(b);
// Or
const merge = (a, b) => [...a, ...b];

// Merge and remove the duplications
const merge = [...new Set(a.concat(b))];
// Or
const merge = [...new Set([...a, ...b])];

  return string.length < length ? string : `${string.slice(0, length - 3)}...`;
};

// string from the middle
const truncateStringMiddle = (string, length, start, end) => {
  return `${string.slice(0, start)}...${string.slice(string.length - end)}`;
};

// A number to a fixed decimal point

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[21. Get query parameters from the URL]

To obtain query parameters, we must first divide the URL at β€œ?” and then replace β€œ=” with β€œ:” and **β€œ&” **with β€œ,”.

const getQueryParams = URL =>
  JSON.parse('{"' + decodeURI(URL.split('?')[1]).replace(/&/g, '","').replace(/=/g, '":"') + '"}');

getQueryParams('https://www.com?search=api&test=true')
