Lodash is a JavaScript library that works on the top of underscore.js. Lodash helps in working with arrays, strings, objects, numbers, etc.

The _.prototype.chain() method of Sequence in lodash is used to create an instance of lodash wrapper accompanied by explicit method chain sequences enabled.

Syntax:

_.prototype.chain()

Parameters: This method doesn’t accept any parameter.

Return Value: This method returns the new lodash wrapper instance.

Example 1:

Javascript




// Requiring lodash library
const _ = require('lodash');
  
// Initializing authors variable
var authors = [
  { 'author': 'Nidhi', 'articles': 750 },
  { 'author': 'Nisha', 'articles': 500 }
];
   
// Calling chain() method and creating
// an explicit chaining sequence
let result = _(authors).chain()
                       .tail()
                       .value();
  
// Displays output                       
console.log(result);


Output:

[ { author: 'Nisha', articles: 500 } ]

Example 2:

Javascript




// Requiring lodash library
const _ = require('lodash');
  
// Initializing authors variable
var authors = [
  { 'author': 'Nidhi', 'articles': 750 },
  { 'author': 'Nisha', 'articles': 500 }
];
   
// Calling chain() method and creating
// an explicit chaining sequence
let result = _(authors).chain()
                       .head()
                       .pick('articles')
                       .value();
  
// Displays output                       
console.log(result);


Output:

{ articles: 750 }

Example 3:

Javascript




// Requiring lodash library
const _ = require('lodash');
   
// Calling chain() method and creating
// an explicit chaining sequence
let obj = _("GeeksforGeeks").chain().value();
  
// Displays output                       
console.log(obj[0]);
console.log(obj[4]);
console.log(obj[7]);
console.log(obj[11]);


Output:
