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

To use the isarraybuffer function from the Lodash library in TypeScript, you can start by installing the Lodash library using npm:

npm install lodash
19 chars
2 lines

Then, you can import the isArrayBuffer function from the lodash module and use it in your TypeScript code:

import { isArrayBuffer } from 'lodash';

const buffer = new ArrayBuffer(8);

console.log(isArrayBuffer(buffer)); // true
console.log(isArrayBuffer('hello')); // false
167 chars
7 lines

Note that isArrayBuffer is a type guard, meaning that TypeScript will automatically narrow the type of a value to an ArrayBuffer if the function returns true. To take advantage of this, you can use type annotations in your code:

function processData(data: ArrayBuffer | DataView | string) {
  if (isArrayBuffer(data)) {
    const view = new DataView(data);
    // Process the data as an ArrayBuffer...
  } else if (data instanceof DataView) {
    // Process the data as a DataView...
  } else {
    // Process the data as a string...
311 chars
11 lines

In this example, the processData function takes a parameter that can be either an ArrayBuffer, a DataView, or a string. By using the isArrayBuffer function as a type guard, we can safely assume that the data parameter is an ArrayBuffer inside the first if statement, and use the DataView constructor to access and manipulate its contents.
