flatMap

flatMap(Array<T>, (item: T, index: Number) -> Array<R>): Array<R>

Applies a transformation function to each element in a list (array) and then flattens the result.

Instead of returning an array of arrays (as map does), it returns a flattened array (see the flatten function).

Parameters

Name Description

items

The list (Array type) to map.

mapper

The item and/or index in the list to flatten.

Example

This example returns an array containing each index and item in order. Note that you can also write the example like this: { "users" : ["joe", "pete", "matt"] flatMap ([$$ as String, $]) }
