how to use the filter function from the lodash library in typescript

To use the filter function from the lodash library in TypeScript, you first need to install and import it in your project:

npm install lodash

import { filter } from 'lodash';

Once you have imported the filter function, you can use it to filter an array based on a given condition. The filter function takes two arguments: the array to filter, and a function that returns true or false for each array element. The function should return true if the element should be included in the filtered result, and false if it should be excluded.

Here's an example of using the filter function with TypeScript:

interface Person {
  name: string;
  age: number;

const people: Person[] = [
  { name: 'Alice', age: 25 },
  { name: 'Bob', age: 30 },
  { name: 'Charlie', age: 35 },

const filteredPeople = filter(people, person => person.age >= 30);

// Output: [{ name: 'Bob', age: 30 }, { name: 'Charlie', age: 35 }]

In this example, we define an interface Person with a name property of type string and an age property of type number. We then create an array of Person objects and assign it to the people variable.

We use the filter function to filter the people array based on the condition person.age >= 30. This returns a new array of Person objects that have an age property of 30 or higher.

Finally, we log the filtered array to the console. The output is [{ name: 'Bob', age: 30 }, { name: 'Charlie', age: 35 }], which corresponds to the two Person objects that meet the filter condition.
