Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:01
You can use the spread function on strings, as they're implement the iterable (?) protocol, so that makes an array of the characters
You can then
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 00:01
@DanCouper safe till 25000 recursion reached
Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:01
use the spread function directly on a generator
Haha, yeah, this will blow up
for long words

@pshiwakoti1 these are hipster talks, don't listen to these
Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:02
but yeah, you can use spread on the generator function, and it'll give you an array of the retun values, it's nice
dpugachev
@dpugachev
Mar 21 2017 00:03
got to admit spread and rest are pretty sweet
Prakash Shiwakoti
@pshiwakoti1
Mar 21 2017 00:03
so now what do I do
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 00:03
what is rest operator?

@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 00:03
^ like he said
dpugachev
@dpugachev
Mar 21 2017 00:03
rest, its like [...args] take as many args as you want
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful

oh
dpugachev

isn't that the spread op?
Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:04
ah yeah, sorry
dpugachev
@dpugachev
Mar 21 2017 00:04
they are similiar syntax but different purpose, no?
Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:04
spread in that case
Matthew Pengelly
@mcpengelly
Mar 21 2017 00:04
spread and rest are opposites
Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:04
they do same thing underneath even though it looks like it's different
Matthew Pengelly
@mcpengelly
Mar 21 2017 00:04
same syntax
one is used in function args
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 00:04
[,,a,b] = [...abcd]
^ this is rest?

Rest in in a function parameters.

@iashraful if I remove my regex and filter, it computes permutation of aab as length 6

Mar 21 2017 00:09
what is wrong with it @BrianCodes33 ?
Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:09
@dpugachev you can specify strictness, js/eslint just let you set rules about what should be treated as an error/what should be a warning when you run it against your code to check
Matthew Pengelly
@mcpengelly
Mar 21 2017 00:09
i thought yield was a sort of return
Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:10
yup, it is
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 00:10
Eslint is weird, if you let it loose on jQuery, it'll spam your terminal with == and missing { } warnings
Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:10
but it doesn't exit the funtion like return

Mar 21 2017 00:10
If you were to use a more strict writing language generators are usually used.
I.E. Java or Go

Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:11
Go won't have them I don't think, not needed
with Goroutines etc, amazingly easy concurrency
would be unecessary cruft I think
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 00:11
@BrianCodes33 odd, it seems correct to me
ah, you need to also do some checking
for the given test case, it should also do this
Prakash Shiwakoti
@pshiwakoti1
Mar 21 2017 00:14
@iashraful so what is your suggestions for me?
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 00:14
instead of collection[I].hasOwnProperty(source) => translates to (for given case => collection[I].hasOwnProperty({lastName: 'capulate' })
which is not correct
@BrianCodes33 it is using wrong method
instead check if source's keys are present in collection
Dan Couper
@DanCouper
Mar 21 2017 00:15
@iashraful Java calls them Iterable, same as C#, Ruby has Enumerator. PHP had them for ages, same as Perl. Haskell everything is a generator. Probably a few more as well

Hi! In my Wikipedia Viewer I'm getting the Wikipedia snippets from the JSON url like you can see in an easier to view form here: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=search&srsearch=dog&utf8=
However, The snippets are cutting off the beginning descriptions up to the first <span> in the Wikipedia snippet. Would someone mind helping me get the part before the span in the snippets too?

Dan Couper

well, the thing is, source is an object, it has some key:value, you need to check your collection for presence of all of the key:Value in each object of collection, if they are match, you return it @BrianCodes33
{ name: 'Brian' } here key = name, value for key name is Brian

function bouncer(arr) {
  // Don't show a false ID to this bouncer.
  var newBouncerArr = arr.filter(function(val) {

    return val !== false && val !== "" && val !== 0 && val !== undefined && val !== null && val !== NaN;

@GRLaux to access the value from a lookup table, you need to do this lookupTable[termToLookFor]

You don't need to do the test cases, let the Boolean method do the work.
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 01:26
@cfunkles use filter with Boolean
if you pass any false values to Boolean it'll be falsified
for example
Boolean(NaN); // => false
so if you do it in a loop, it'll pick out all false values
best is filter

@Pagnito but still it will not work, because you are regenerating the whole sequence everytime
you need to do 1 loop only
then map them back to string

@iashraful how am i regenerating the whole sequence what do u mean by that
Ashraful Islam

but if I recall correctly rot13 used different algorithm, may be forward/reverse 13 characters or something
d+=str[i].charCodeAt();

@Pagnito
Mar 21 2017 01:43
so what does that do wrong
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 01:43
it just keeps on concatenating everything to d
but when the 2nd loop is entered, it will generate from beginning everytime
something like
[1,1,2,1,2,3,1,2,3,4] <== just example, not exactly what is happening in your loop, but similar
see how they are repeating

Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 01:45
in one loop collect all charCode in d
then once that loop is complete
use another loop to do other things
also, you need to do some mathematics in 2nd loop to move your character by 13 letters on each side
Pagnito
@Pagnito
Mar 21 2017 01:47

there are just too many alerts so it seems they are infinite

[1,1,2,1,2,3,] = 3 more alerts

Mar 21 2017 02:03
@avinashreddy24 You're trying to return based on the value of the card. You should be returning based on the value of count.
@avinashreddy24 Counting Cards is a challenge where your function will receive a card parameter. You're supposed to increment or decrement the global count variable according to the card's value
If the value of the card parameter is 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 you need to increment the global variable count.
If the value of the card parameter is 10, 'J', 'Q', 'K' or 'A' you need to decrement the global variable count.
Then the function will return a string with the current count and the string "Bet" if the count is positive, or "Hold" if the count is zero or negative.
The current count and the player's decision ("Bet" or "Hold") should be separated by a single space.

@cfunkles Security is always the issue, but it's also the most difficult to remedy because a lot of it depends on your activity and behavior. Personally, I use Chrome Canary which is the Bleading edge release of Chrome, usually updated daily. And I install a simple Ad-block addon/plugin. I abstain from porn, torrent searching, etc, because there are many exploits in the wild that can compromise even the most hardened of systems.

@jd-wheaton those are all good practices, I use as well to stay protected. I am just weirded out by that audio playing, but not too worried since the audio was about coding and mentioned FCC in it.

@cfunkles Unless your a target for some personal reason, I doubt you were compromised. It may have just been a glitch on the backend or in your browser. You can always report what you saw to be safe, but I doubt it was anything serious.

you need to separate the input and the elements to remove
here what I see is, it'll remove technically everything excluding the initial array

yeah, my for loop does that, and it works
David Amanze
@GodKingShogun
Mar 21 2017 02:42
@iashraful makes sense so if the code on the left of ? evaluates to true then it takes the value left of the colon and if it is false it will take the value to the right of the colon
Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 02:43
yes
@GodKingShogun you got it
it is very handy to quickly write some if/else without making it 6 lines
@jd-wheaton your loop is not separating anything
it is just taking all arguments into seek, and then looking for its presence
if I did destroyer([1,2,3], 2,3), your seek will become [ [1,2,3], 2, 3]
JDW
@jd-wheaton
Mar 21 2017 02:45
it becomes [2,3]

are you sure it becomes 2,3 ? doesn't seem like that

Ashraful Islam
@iashraful
Mar 21 2017 02:48
but when you filter it, !seek.includes(value); will return false, if an element exists in array, when filter receives a false, it doesn't keep that element
so your outcome becomes=>[]` empty array

@troutman21 you can't do this: contacts[i].hasOwnProperty("prop")
This is testing for the literal string "prop" not the variable.

So remove the quotes

Here contacts[i].hasOwnProperty("firstName") :x:

contacts[i].firstName (we can use dot notation)

  // single args but not number
  if (args.length === 1 && typeof args[0] !== 'number') {
    return;
  }

  // double args
  if (args.length === 2) {

    // nums so return sum
    if (typeof args[0] === 'number' && typeof args[1] === 'number' ) {
      return args[0] + args[1];
    } else { // one is invalid arg, return undef

  return function (y) {
    // invalid arg type

Hi all, I'm learning JS for the first time and am having trouble with the syntax for Switch Statements for a challenge.

Here is my attempt:

function caseInSwitch(val) {
var answer = "";
case 1:
answer = "alpha";
break;
...
return answer;
}

caseInSwitch(1);

Anyone look at #167 for me? All except a single test will pass. I can't see why. Here's what I'm passing in...
switch(card) {

case 2,3,4,5,6:
  count = 5;
  return (count + " Bet");

case 7,8,9:
  count = 0;
  return (count + " Hold");

case 10,'J','Q','K','A':
  count = -5;
  return (count + " Hold");

//this case does not pass
case 3,7,'Q',8,'A':
  count = -1;
  return (count + " Hold");

case 2,'J',9,2,7:
  count = 1;
  return (count + " Bet");

case 2,2,10:
  count = 1;
  return (count + " Bet");

case 3,2,'A',10,'K':
  count = -1;
  return (count + " Hold");

}
}

@RhnSharma , 1, You need to add a new variable to hold the results.
  1. Remove num=1, so that you do not loose what was sent into the function. You need to keep that # and pass it to the for loop.
Manish Giri
@Manish-Giri
Mar 21 2017 04:32
@RhnSharma
  1. you're starting the loop at i = 0, and yet instead of incrementing to num, you're decrementing
  2. inside the for, return will terminate the loop at the first iteration.

@fraknard yup
Stanley Davis
@de-facto
Mar 21 2017 04:44
@RhnSharma I think what you need to do is set your counter to the argument provided in the parameter (num), and as you are already supplying the starting count with num, you will need to subtract 1 from the count; your iterator (final condition) should be set to decrement; your condition should be the case that num is greater than one; if it is not, you risk entering an infinite loop. You must then explicitly state what you want to do with the variable num, that is, num gets ( = ) what? You are almost there.

Mar 21 2017 04:49
@RhnSharma One thing: you must set a condition in the first instance to check IF num is zero or less.

var decision;
if (card < 7){
count += 1;
}else if ( 10 > card > 7){
count += 0;
}else {
count -= 1;

if (count > 0) {
return count + "Bet";

this returns -1 Hold and not other values

I worked on the Record Collection and Profile Lookup challenges for hours before I finally gave up and seeked help. unfortunately, I ended up running past a reply that included the solution, but my confusion comes from the solution. For both challenges, you needed to use a nested if statement. when did we learn about nested if statements at anytime before those 2 challenges? are nested if statements the same thing as else if? im confused as to why 2 challenge solutions would require the use of nested if statements were never brought up or shown to us to begin with

@Lumexralph I wouldn't be using this site if i already knew what to do. I had no idea you were even able to do nested if statements, how would I have known to study resources about nested if statements outside of FCC if I didn't even know they were a thing to begin with? @saninmersion when you reach the Record Collection challenge, the only nested element you've learned is Arrays.

function mutation(arr) {
    var first = arr[0].toLowerCase();
    var second = arr[1].toLowerCase();
    console.log(first, second);

    for (var i = 0; i < second.length; i++) {
        console.log(second[i]);
        if (first.indexOf(second[i]) !== -1) {

@hectorcoronado true would mean that all the letters in hey are in hello, so how soon can we say its true? after checking 1 letter, 2 letters, or 3 letters? In your code when would we want to return true?

@Rakesh18754 Well then you would have to use the Network tab in the chrome dev tools

hey, I am sorry, but yesterday I asked a question, but then I had to leave urgently, so I couldn't be a part of the discussion so I am asking it again

@Rakesh18754 You can check how jQuery serializes parameters by using $.param(obj, true). The true as second parameter tells it to use traditional serialization (the one you are using in your provided code)

  var bookStartDate = '2017-03-21';
  var bookEndDate = '2017-04-24';
  var setStartDate = new Date(bookStartDate);
  var setEndDate = new Date(bookEndDate);
  console.log(setEndDate)
  var noOfDays = (setEndDate.getTime() - setStartDate.getTime())/86400000;
  console.log(noOfDays);
  var startDate = setStartDate.getDate();
  var todayDate = new Date()
  var dateCollection = [];
  for(var k = 0; k <= noOfDays; k++){
    todayDate.setDate(startDate + k);
    (function(value){
        var date = new Date(value);
          console.log(value, date);

        dateCollection.push(date);

    })(todayDate);
  }
so I am trying to set a series of dates between a start date and end data, but the problem is that when numbers exceeds the range of a particular month, my date object gives out weird dates, how do I tackle it? don't want the solution, but a starting point would be great

@relentless-coder Maybe it has to do with the format of the string dates? In my machine this happens

@relentless-coder You could also look into using momentjs. I've only worked a little bit with it but it is pretty nice. Maybe try something like moment("20170321", "YYYYMMDD").add(1, 'days')

first one is encoded
second one is decoded
but did not understood wats the difference
only instead of " [ " it uses " %5 "
i mean in debugging how it helps us ?

@Rakesh18754 encoded is literally what is sent to the server, decoded is a more human-readable representation

@Rakesh18754 The important think to notice are the [object Object] things, these are not probably what you meant to send to the server

@kebien6020 It's okay, I solved it. I used a different approach. I use a while loop which compares the milliseconds of startDate and endDate, while the startDate <= endDate, I keep adding 86400000 to the startDate and create a new date with that and push it to my collection

Mar 21 2017 06:08
@relentless-coder I first thought of that but didn't suggest it because it may have problems with daylight savings or things like that which cause some days to not have 86400000 ms in them

well, my app is limited to indian users, and we don't have any concept of daylight savings, I don't even know what that is other than that it is a thing in west and some countries in east

@Rakesh18754 try not using the traditional serialization mode (so $.param(data, false)). If that produces the string you want to send to the server, in the $.ajax configuration object set traditional to false. If not, then maybe look into serializing yourself the data you want to send to the server into a string.
