JavaScript - get unique values in array

0 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to get unique values in a JavaScript array.

The below example presents the use of Set object that lets us store unique values of any type.

The constructor of Set takes an iterable object and the spread operator (...) transforms the Set object back into the array.

Runnable example:

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

let array = ['A', 'B', 'B', 'B', 'C', 'C'];

let unique = [ Set(array)];

console.log(unique); // ['A', 'B', 'C']

Second example: 

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

let array = [1, 1, 'B', 'B', 'C', 'C'];

let unique = [ Set(array)];

console.log(unique); // [1, 'B', 'C']


Sets are a new object type introduced in ES6 (ES2015).
