Javascript Interview Question: Palindrome
View palindrome.js
/*
Create a function that checks if a string is a palindrome.
*/
//Most direct solution
function palindrome(str) {
return str === str.split('').reverse().join('');

//Solution that uses Array.every() helper. Note, this is inefficient as you do twice the work.

Javascript Interview Question: Chunked Array - Given an array, create a new array containing chunked arrays of the given size.
View chunked-array.js
/*
Given an array and size, create a new array containing chunked elements with the size provided.
For example, given the array ['Alligator', 'Bear', 'Cat', 'Dog', 'Elephant', 'Flamingo', 'Giraffe'] and size 2,
return an array of arrays with 2 elements per array.
Result:
[["Alligator", "Black Bear"], ["Cat", "Dog"], ["Elephant", "Flamingo"], ["Giraffe"]]

Javascript Interview Question: Anagram
View anagram.js

Check to see if two strings are anagrams, where both strings have the same characters in the same quantity.
Only consider characters, not spaces and punctuation. Consider the strings as case insensitive, where capital
letters are the same as lowercase letters.

GreggSetzer / capitalize.js
Last active Feb 3, 2018
Javascript Interview Question: Title Case - Capitalize the first letter in each word of a string.
View capitalize.js
/*
Create a function that accepts a string, converts the string to title case, and
returns the result. For title case, the first letter of each word is capitalized.
capitalize('hello world'); //Outputs: 'Hello World'
captialize('the year of the hare'); //Outputs: 'The Year Of The Hare';
Pseudo code:
1. Split the string into array using str.split(' ');
2. Map over the elements in the array. Title case each word using helper function.

View es6-pyramid.js
/*
This function builds a pyramid using ES6 repeat function available on the String prototype.
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/String/repeat
colSize: is the width of the grid in columns. Also think of it as the width of the last row in the pyramid.
level: This represents the width of the pyramid level at each iteration.
numSpaces: This represents the number of spaces to use on both sides of the pyramid.
spaces: This variable is used to cache the result of String#repeat(), no need to do the same work twice.
