Lodash _.some


The _.some method is a utility function provided by the popular JavaScript library Lodash. It is used to check if at least one element in a collection matches a given condition. The method operates on arrays, objects, and strings and returns a boolean value indicating whether any element in the collection passed the test condition.


_.some(collection, [predicate=_.identity])


  • collection (Array | Object | String): The collection to iterate over.
  • [predicate=_.identity] (Function): The function invoked per iteration. It accepts three arguments: value, index|key, and the collection. The predicate is invoked with each element of a collection to test if each element resolves to truthy or falsy.

Example Usage:

_.some([null, 0, 'yes', false], Boolean);
// => true

_.some([null, 0, '', false]);
// => false

_.some({ 'a': 0, 'b': 'yes', 'c': false }, Boolean);
// => true

_.some('hello', (char) => char === 'l');
// => true

In the first example, the _.some method returns a boolean value, true, because the predicate function Boolean returns true for the truthy values in the array [null, 0, β€˜yes’, false]. Note that if the predicate argument is not passed, the default value of _.identity is used, which is a function that always returns the argument passed to it.

The second example returns a boolean value of false because the predicate function Boolean returns false for all the falsy values in the array [null, 0, β€˜β€™, false]

In the third example, the _.some method operates on an object where it returns a boolean value of true because the predicate function Boolean returns true for the truthy values 'yes' and false

Lastly, the fourth example iterates over a string and checks if any of its characters are 'l'. It returns true in this case.

In conclusion, the _.some method is useful in checking if at least one element in a collection meets a given condition. It supports arrays, objects, and strings and provides the flexibility to pass a custom predicate function to test the collection elements.
