The problem with all the examples is

import * as _ from "lodash";

That'll pull in the entire lib. At this point, if you're looking for a utility, it should be very selective, much like your article suggests. That means your npm install should only pull in that utility, not the whole library.

You're right. Just import the methods you need to use. That's more efficient.
