pull

arrayintermediate

Mutates the original array to filter out the values specified.

Use Array.prototype.filter() and Array.prototype.includes() to pull out the values that are not needed. Use Array.prototype.length = 0 to mutate the passed in an array by resetting it's length to zero and Array.prototype.push() to re-populate it with only the pulled values.

const pull = (arr, ...args) => {
  let argState = Array.isArray(args[0]) ? args[0] : args;
  let pulled = arr.filter((v, i) => !argState.includes(v));
  arr.length = 0;
  pulled.forEach(v => arr.push(v));
};
