function injection
const transformData = dataArray =>{
//transforms the data in some way
const dataToObj = dataArray =>{
//converts the data to a new form
//The final object will be an object that contains all dependencies in this file.
//The functions get defaulted to the functions in the file, so it can easily be ommitted for writing non-test code
const composeData = (dataArray, {_dataToObj = dataToObj, _transformData = transformData} = {})=>{
const transformedData = transformData(dataArray);
return dataToObj(transformedData);
//What I like about this is that I get to worry about only compose data.
//I don't care what the other functions do. It's also really easy to test what happens under different circumstances
//Because I just state what I want the return value of each function to be.
//This also doesn't disallow more heavy integration or end to end tests. The main drawback is odd looking object at the end.
