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

To use the shuffle function from the Lodash library in TypeScript, first you need to install it via npm by running the following command:

npm install --save lodash
26 chars
2 lines

Then you need to import the function in your TypeScript code like this:

import * as _ from 'lodash';

const myArray = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
const shuffledArray = _.shuffle(myArray);

console.log(shuffledArray); // e.g. [4, 2, 5, 1, 3]
158 chars
7 lines

Here we use the _ import to access the Lodash library, and call the shuffle function with an array as its argument. The function returns a new array that contains the elements of the original array in a random order.

Note that if you're using TypeScript in strict mode, you may need to add the esModuleInterop option to your tsconfig.json file to allow the default export of the Lodash library to be treated as a namespace import. For example:

  "compilerOptions": {
    "strict": true,
    "esModuleInterop": true
