Lodash _.deburr

Overview

The lodash _.deburr method is a utility function that is used for deburring strings. In computer programming, deburring refers to the process of removing diacritical marks or accents from characters in a string. The diacritical marks may appear on characters in a string due to various languages that use accents or special characters to represent different sounds or meanings.

The _.deburr method in lodash is used to remove such diacritical marks and normalize the characters to a basic latin alphabet. In other words, it replaces all accented characters in a string with their basic equivalents, without modifying the string's structure or length.

This method is particularly useful when dealing with strings that contain non-ASCII characters, such as text from different languages or data retrieved from external sources. By removing the diacritical marks, it helps to ensure that the strings are consistent and easier to manipulate or compare.

The _.deburr method can be used in several scenarios, such as data cleansing, text normalization, and string comparison. The returned string is always in lower case, regardless of the original case of the input string.

Here is an example of how to use the lodash _.deburr method:

const lodash = require('lodash');

const stringWithAccents = 'Déjà Vu';
const deburredString = lodash.deburr(stringWithAccents);

console.log(deburredString); // Outputs: 'Deja Vu'

In the example above, the string 'Déjà Vu' contains an accented character. The _.deburr method is used to remove the diacritical mark and normalize the character to 'a', resulting in the string output 'Deja Vu'.

Overall, the lodash _.deburr method is a handy utility function that helps to normalize strings by removing diacritical marks and making them more consistent and usable in different programming scenarios.
