The _.memoize() method is used to memorize a given function by caching the result computed by the function. If resolver is issued, the cache key for store the result is determined based on the arguments given to the memoized method. By default, the first argument provided to the memoized function is used as the map cache key.


_.memoize(func, [resolver])

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • func: This parameter holds the function to have its output memoized.
  • resolver: It is the function to resolve the cache key.

Return Value: This method returns the new memoized function.

Note: Here, const _ = require(‘lodash’) is used to import the lodash library into the file. 

Example 1:


// Requiring the lodash library  
const _ = require("lodash");  
// Use of _.memoize() method  
var sum = _.memoize(function (n) { 
    return n < 1 ? n : n + sum(n - 1); 
// Sum of first 6 natural number  



Example 2:  


// Requiring the lodash library  
const _ = require("lodash");  
var object = { 'cpp': 5, 'java': 8 };
// Use of _.memoize() method  
var values = _.memoize(_.values);
// value of object 
// Modify the result cache.
values.cache.set(object, ['html', 'css']);


[5, 8]
['html', 'css']

Note: This will not work in normal JavaScript because it requires the library lodash to be installed.
