New day, new article! Today’s article is about five advanced Javascript ES6 features that I like and that I think everyone (at least every developer) should understand.

Are you ready?

💡 Destructuring

Destructuring is a quick way to get values out of objects and arrays. For example, you can extract values and assign them to variables with a single line of code.

Here’s an example of how destructuring can be used with an object:

And here’s an example with an array:

As you can see, destructuring makes it simple to extract values from objects and arrays and assign them to variables.

🔒 Block Scoping

You can use block scoping to declare variables that are only available within a specific block of code. There are two ways to declare variables in JavaScript: var and let.

The var keyword declares a global or function-scoped variable, which means it can be accessed from anywhere within the same function. On the other hand, the let keyword declares a variable that is block scoped, which means that it can only be accessed within the same block of code.

Here’s an example of let-based block scoping:

As you can see, the message variable is only available within the if statement-defined block of code.

🚗 Spread Operator

Spreading the values of an array or object into a new array or object is possible with the spread operator. It’s a quick way to combine arrays or objects or to turn an array-like object into a proper array.

Here’s an example of how to combine two arrays using the spread operator:

Here’s an example of how to use the spread operator to transform an array-like object into a real array:

A spread operator is a powerful tool for simplifying and improving the readability of your code.

🔮 Template Literals

String literals that allow you to embed expressions within your strings are known as template literals. Instead of quotes (‘ or “), they are defined with the backtick (`) character.

Here’s an example of template literals in action:

As you can see, template literals make it simple to embed expressions within strings and allow you to write multi-line strings without using string concatenation.

💾 Arrow Functions

In JavaScript, arrow functions are a shorthand syntax for writing anonymous functions. They enable you to write code that is shorter, more concise, and more readable.

Here’s an example of how to use the arrow function:

As you can see, arrow functions make it simple to write anonymous functions and have a shorter syntax than regular functions.

It was a short article, but I hope it was helpful for you. I use these features daily and feel like they are crucial for every Javascript developer. So hopefully, you have discovered something new today.
