So You Want to be a Functional Programmer (Part 2)

Friendly Reminder

Refactoring

function validateSsn(ssn) {
if (/^\d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4}$/.exec(ssn))
console.log('Valid SSN');
else
console.log('Invalid SSN');
}
function validatePhone(phone) {
if (/^\(\d{3}\)\d{3}-\d{4}$/.exec(phone))
console.log('Valid Phone Number');
else
console.log('Invalid Phone Number');
}
function validateValue(value, regex, type) {
if (regex.exec(value))
console.log('Invalid ' + type);
else
console.log('Valid ' + type);
}
function validateAddress(address) {
if (parseAddress(address))
console.log('Valid Address');
else
console.log('Invalid Address');
}
function validateName(name) {
if (parseFullName(name))
console.log('Valid Name');
else
console.log('Invalid Name');
}

Higher-Order Functions

function validateValueWithFunc(value, parseFunc, type) {
if (parseFunc(value))
console.log('Invalid ' + type);
else
console.log('Valid ' + type);
}
validateValueWithFunc('123-45-6789', /^\d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4}$/.exec, 'SSN');
validateValueWithFunc('(123)456-7890', /^\(\d{3}\)\d{3}-\d{4}$/.exec, 'Phone');
validateValueWithFunc('123 Main St.', parseAddress, 'Address');
validateValueWithFunc('Joe Mama', parseName, 'Name');
var parseSsn = /^\d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4}$/.exec;
var parsePhone = /^\(\d{3}\)\d{3}-\d{4}$/.exec;
validateValueWithFunc('123-45-6789', parseSsn, 'SSN');
validateValueWithFunc('(123)456-7890', parsePhone, 'Phone');
validateValueWithFunc('123 Main St.', parseAddress, 'Address');
validateValueWithFunc('Joe Mama', parseName, 'Name');
function makeRegexParser(regex) {
return regex.exec;
}
var parseSsn = makeRegexParser(/^\d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4}$/);
var parsePhone = makeRegexParser(/^\(\d{3}\)\d{3}-\d{4}$/);
validateValueWithFunc('123-45-6789', parseSsn, 'SSN');
validateValueWithFunc('(123)456-7890', parsePhone, 'Phone');
validateValueWithFunc('123 Main St.', parseAddress, 'Address');
validateValueWithFunc('Joe Mama', parseName, 'Name');
function makeAdder(constantValue) {
return function adder(value) {
return constantValue + value;
};
}
var add10 = makeAdder(10);
console.log(add10(20)); // prints 30
console.log(add10(30)); // prints 40
console.log(add10(40)); // prints 50

Closures

function grandParent(g1, g2) {
var g3 = 3;
return function parent(p1, p2) {
var p3 = 33;
return function child(c1, c2) {
var c3 = 333;
return g1 + g2 + g3 + p1 + p2 + p3 + c1 + c2 + c3;
};
};
}
var parentFunc = grandParent(1, 2); // returns parent()
var childFunc = parentFunc(11, 22); // returns child()
console.log(childFunc(111, 222)); // prints 738
// 1 + 2 + 3 + 11 + 22 + 33 + 111 + 222 + 333 == 738
