Introduction to Filter method in javascript

In this tutorial, we will learn about how to use and when to use the Filter method in JavaScript.

What is the Filter method?

The Filter() method is Used to filter for elements in the original array that satisfy a certain condition

Basically, Filter() method returns a new array containing the array elements that passed a specified test condition and leaves the original array untouched.

For Example,

Suppose we have an array as follows:

let arr = [300, 450, -400, 1000, -65, -13, 70, 300];

Now, we want's to get only positve value from it, so we can do this using filter as follows:

let modifiedArr =  arr.filter(function(num){
  return num > 0;

console.log(modifiedArr);//[300, 450, 1000, 70, 300]

How to Filter an Array of Objects?

Now suppose we have an array of objects as follows:

let users = [
    {name: "sam", country: "us"},
    {name: "steve", country: "uk"},
    {name: "john", country: "uk"},
    {name: "phillip", country: "india"}

Here, we want's to get list of users who belongs to uk, then we can filter as follows:

let filteredData = users.filter(function(ele){
